What the AF?

Seriously? AF is here already, 3 mo postpartum while exclusively BFing. I got a raw deal this time.

oh that just stinks. I only made it 6 weeks with Samantha 5 months with Lilly and then 9 months with Isaiah. So it got better each time. I was ebfing too.

That stinks! I actually thought mine came back that soon, but it ended up being spotting from our first post-partum DTD. Didn't get anything again for another 5 or 6 months.

True...and after I didn't ovulate for 6 months after going off the pill before getting pg with DD, so I usually see ovulation as a good sign. It's good to know I could get pregnant if I wanted to, but I definitely don't want to yet. It's good to know that we actually need to use protection, too. Maybe I'll eventually start charting again and try doing the FAM thing.

yeah, this is definitely not spotting, it is heavy, but not as heavy as my first one after DD, which was heavy enough that I was watching to make sure it wasn't too heavy.

well, at about 6 months I started spotting a little every day and didn't know what to do about it, after about 3 months of almost constant spotting, I started taking Vitex which stopped the spotting and then the first true AF came at about 10 months.

And I lol'd at your post title!!!

thanks, I thought it was pretty clever

BOooo!!!!! I'm like that too...with all three of my kids I got AF back at 8-10 weeks postpartum and then every 28 days thereafter. Sucks to that we don't get to reap the benefits of exclusively breastfeeding!

Sad I'm another one that doesn't get to reap the benefits of EBFing. 6-8 weeks it comes back for me too. (And usually with a bad dose of major hormonal emotional instability as if it needs to make up for lost time lol)
