Again?

Okay so I already had my first period since having Desmond. It lasted about 8-9 days (yuck!) and so it just ended like last week I believe. So I went to the bathroom today and I discovered bloody tinged mucus! Could I already be having another period?!

With my first two I went right back to being regular after having my first period after them. I'm BFing exclusively right now since DH is gone for the next 6 weeks. Could it just be old blood still getting out of my system? It actually looked kind of like bloody ovulation mucus (does that make sense?)

Anyone else ever have this? And has anyone else already had their first period or am I the only one? Ha ha.

I'm having the bloody tinged mucous right now too and I too was wondering if it was from ovulation. I had what I thought might be my actual period last week, but my periods were so irregular after I got off birth control, and since I have PCOS, I really have no idea what to expect period wise. I haven't had any cramps, menstrual or ovulation like, so I don't know what my body is doing. Of course I'm just not coming up in six weeks post partum unlike you, so mine is probably not period related. Sorry, none of that probably helped, I'm just rambling. Lol

It can take a while for your system to get back in order after all that trauma. I know it's the pits to have your cycles jacked up like that.

I got my first period as well. With the other 2 it waited 6 months with this one It did not even wait 8 wks. It has been very light but lasting longer then normal. I hope it is over soon. I also went back to normal very quickly after the last 2 kids, so hopefully it does this time as well. Sorry to hear that yours came back for the second time.

Sad bummer to have it come back so fast! With my first two, I had AF about 6 weeks PP, but haven't had it yet this time around. (THANK GOD!) I wonder if it has something to do with having my tubes tied? I doubt it, since the hormones released into the system are all the same, maybe not...

A TMI question, but how long until the PP bleeding stops? I've only had one day that it completely stopped. It hasnt been very heavy at all but it's still annoying.

Mine only lasted a few weeks...maybe 2 weeks and then I just had that yellowish mucus for about another week or two then nothing...of course then I got my period during my 6 week check up (embarrassing!!!) and that lasted about 8-9 days and then I just got my period again. When I got my first period it wasn't very heavy until about day 4 and 5 then real light again. This time it's real light too.

Also, I know with DD1 I bled for 6 weeks straight (UGH!) but the OB said she was sure my first PPP was during that time as well. With DD2 I honestly don't remember.

Jenny- I still have some PP bleeding too. Just enough to need a pantyliner.

Katie- You're BF'ing, right? Seems cruel to have your period. I didn't get mine until 14 months PP with DS1. I hope you don't have it again already!

Yep! I was pumping and BFing a lot and with our freezer full and no more room I wasn't pumping anymore, but still BFing. Plus Desmond likes the boob a lot better than bottle lol. But yes, it sucks that I've already gotten it back TWICE now...I miss that part of pregnancy..no periods lol
