I knew that the first period after baby (not counting pp bleeding) could be rough. But no one told me that the second could be crazy. As in, five weeks after I got my period back, I got another period followed by two weeks of normalcy, and then constant spotting, then bleeding, then a day break, then bleeding, and spotting that went on for
days weeks now and is generally pissing me off. Oh, and there are also days of random painful cramping not necessarily associated with anything else.
I asked my BFF what it was like for her (my dear fertile friend is on baby #4, pg #6) and she said that the longest she's ever had bleeding, not counting pp, was six weeks. SIX freakin' weeks? Say it ain't so.
I saw my OB when I was on day two of spotting so I wasn't especially bothered then. He did say that because I'm still breastfeeding (all the damn time,) things just may be wonky for a while.
I told my mom and she said, "yeah... sorry..." That about sums it up.
