AF... Possibly TMI
Have you gotten AF back yet?

If so, is it how it used to be or does it seem different than it used to?

With this being my first baby and a c section idk what is normal. I finally got AF so not pregnant. Lol. But i have had the absolute worst cramps ever in my tummy and back since i got it. It also is bright red blood which is not normal for me. Its weird. Sorry if TMI.

I think I finally got it back this month because it was like you said, BRIGHT red blood and was so much more blood than it used to be. I had random spotting here and there that I thought might be my period but I think it was just breakthrough bleeding from my birth control. Hoping maybe it will slow down after this!

I haven't gotten AF back yet (yay). I do remember it being the worst when it first returns after having my babies though. Very heavy flow. I'm not looking forward to it. I'm not sure about the cramping, since that isn't normal for you. I have never really gotten cramps with my periods, even though many women do. I think what you're experiencing is normal for the big return, hope the crampiness goes away soon!

Re: AF... Possibly TMI
I've had a few things I thought might be af returning and one I know was af.

the first true ppaf for me has alway been horrendous. heavy bleeding, major cramping lasting for up to 2 weeks.

just miserable.

I'm anticipating af sometime soon, I am pretty sure I o'ed about 1.5 weeks ago, but with pcos I often get all the sympotoms of O then don't actually O.

Re: AF... Possibly TMI
I just got my first PP AF last week. However, it was lighter than normal and I didn't have many cramps. Normally I would get awful cramps and more bleeding, but it was like a light/medium flow the whole time which really caught me off guard e she I was expecting hell!
I don't know if it's because I'm still EBF (with 2 meals of purées and pumping at work) or because of PCOS or just coincidence. No idea if I'm ovulating though!

No witch here yet!

With my other babies the first cycle was wonky, but in general my periods are much more regular after babies than they were before I had any.
