first pp period ?

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

first pp period ?

Postby BrettsBaby6907 » Tue Feb 09, 2010 9:05 am

How many weeks pp did yours start and was it heavier than prepregnancy? Also, if you have had other children, did it continue to be heavier than before? Mine started about 8 weeks pp and has been quite a bit heavier. It's been 4 days so far and I am really hoping it doesn't last a really long time. Also, how long did yours last?

I got mine at exactly 7 weeks PP.

OMG Yes it was so much heavier than pre pregnancy. It lasted super long too, it just ended a few days ago so it lasted like 10 days compared to about 4-5 before pregnancy. Im hoping this isnt a trend and that it wont be so heavy every month.

Do you breastfeed?

I got mine at 11 months PP with M, and at just over 8 months PP this time around with Leo. It's very irregular, I've only had one.
