...I instead got the most God awful, straight from h-e-l-l post-partum AF ever. It's BAD. I can't stop bleeding through every freakin' thing I wear. Tampons, pads, mama cloth, clothing...I'm ruining it all. TMI but I have clots upon clots of gross stuff coming out of me. Not to mention that I feel like I want to die because I'm so tired and crampy. Yikes, if this is what my period is going to be like from here on out then someone just knock me up now so I can avoid it for another two year stretch .
My milk supply has also completely tanked. I am not sure that it's coming back. It's kinda put me into a position where I feel almost forced to wean. I'm not making really any milk and my nipples hurt so bad that I want to cry when he does nurse. I know it's temporary (or is it?) but I just can't handle it. And I don't know if i'll bounce back supply-wise once AF leaves. I kinda always assumed I would wean Miles around his first birthday but now that it's here I'm kind of sad to be in the process. I wish it was possible to just let him continue to nurse once a day, but I don't think my supply would be sustained that way.
Anyway, just rambling. I know I'm probably one of the last women in the PR to get their AF back so this is old news for most of you. Especially since you're all knocked up again. Clearly your cycles are working juuuuuust fine .
I've had AF like that a few times (and have posted about it ), it'll pass.
Your nipples won't feel like they're pinned in a vice much longer and your supply will more than likely come back up
I'm with you on the "I hate AF bandwagon", but unlike your lucky self mine returned shortly after my pp bleeding stopped. So you get a big from me!
Hope it passes fast
I'm sorry Dani that just sucks, to put it nicely. I hope AF ends quickly.
You did definitely hold out longer than me - I managed 10 months pp AF free. My first one was awful, just plain awful. Like you, I bled through everything, which for me is rare since I normally have light (the are you really AF) AFs. Thankfully the last (second) one was more normal, and once again had me questioning if it was really AF.
Kara is right too, your nipples will feel better soon and your milk supply should return.

Yeah, my first comment was also going to be that maybe your supply crashing could be due to AF? Min gets wonky at that time. Also the nipple pain! Yeeeeowch! I get the most crazy aggravating pain during AF.
Also isn't it great bleeding all over the place? I get one of those every so many months. It sucks!
