Sorry, Meg. Ugh, I'm sooooo dreading this. I've been feeling like its gonna show for the last week or so, but so far it hasn't yet. My first PP AF after DD1 was absolutely miserable. I've never in my entire life had an AF that was as bad as that one. And now that I'm done having babies AF is really nothing but a nuisance and I wish it would just go away! LOL

I had to take something to get me started again after dd2 so we could start FTC dd3. I figure with my luck I'll start any day now. Anyone else get their tubes tied with this one? I'm just wondering what to expect in the ad department.

Lindsay, I had my tubes tied. I have no idea what to expect either. I'm kind of surprised that I havent had AF already. I'm pretty sure I had it by about 6 weeks pp with both my other kids. But I'm definitely in no rush!

Emma was born 3/24 and I am still bleeding red (sorry if TMI). When does the initial bleeding stop? (then I will worry about AF)...

My bleeding finally stopped but I feel like AF is gonna start any moment now. Ugh. I really enjoyed not having it for so long.

my initial bleeding just stopped, and i am 5 weeks + post birth. it got significantly lighter after 3 weeks, but i was still bleeding a little every day until 2 days ago.

with DS1, AF returned when he finally started sleeping through the night and i was nursing him way less...which for him wasn't until 10 months old. my first AF was surprisingly no big deal! just 3-4 days of light bleeding. then, because my hormones were all out of whack (we found out later with some labwork that my estrogen was excessively high, even for a bf'ing mom) my 2nd pp AF turned into 3 months of heavy to moderate bleeding every day!!! it was awful. didnt stop til doctor put me on progesterone and then clomid. this time i am taking the mini pill, so i have no clue what to expect re:AF. hopefully the pill will regulate my hormones some and i won't have the high estrogen problem again.

My bleeding stopped 4 weeks PP on the dot.

As I said, I only had like 5-7 real AFs my entire life, so I HATE when I have it (just not used to the trouble, hormones, etc.). Half of me hopes that pregnancy "cured" it and half of me hopes it didn't so I don't have to deal. I think I'm going to do depo shot, then Seasonale - so I don't have to have it. I hope you don't have hormone issues this time. GL!
