Hello Mommas<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I am still nursing DD (13 months) on demand and at night. Sometimes at night she has started going 6 hours without nursing and 4 hours in the day. I still have not seen my PPAF but last week I had some dark brown spotting that needed a panty liner or pad. It lasted 5 days and I was just wondering if this might be my AF or if it might be coming soon. We would like to start to TTC again this summer so I would like to get my cycle back on track but REALLY want to keep nursing DD. Any thoughts or similar experiences? TIA and have a great weekend.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Angie

What you experienced is a typical sign of returning fertility. You could have these type of symptoms on and off for awhile but AF is on her way.

thak you so much for your reply and encouraging info<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I get alot of pressure to wean DD and was concerned that no AF was actually a valid reason to wean...Thankfully things seem to be headed in the right direction.

Argh, so sorry you have to hear all of that. I got my period back at eleven months and then skipped and then a few months later was preggers again. My milk never went down with periods but went way down during month three of the pregnancy, and then I weaned b/c of bleeding, but my midwife and even doctors said it wasn't b/c of the breastfeeding. If I had a choice, I'd still be bf'ing my little toddler dude. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
