Bleeding/Period PP question

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.

It can take awhile after birth for cycles to get situated. I know you said you did not BF, but just for examples sake, after my 3rd I did not get a single period until I had quit BFing for 6 me I peed on a lot of sticks thinking I must be pregnant since period took so darn long to return. Of course you are about 6 weeks PP right, so if you took any chances or have not been using BC it is always possible to get pregnant.

I'm FF and had had a very unusual first bleed. Not sure if it was AF or not. I started spotting July 4th till July 16th. I guess I will find out next month. I am TTC though. I have BF my last 8 children so PP period and when it returns is new to me. Before I started spotting I cramped for over 3 wks.. Hope AF stays away for you.
