I typically don't get mine until after I stop breastfeeding but, never say never! I'm dreading my first AF, whenever it may come. I had my tubes tied and I've heard from lots of ladies that the first AF after that is brutal
Me too...minus the twins part!! Lol and it's only been 7 weeks ***!!! I had my IUD put in at 6w pp after Connor so I never got her back at all except some spotting after insertion. I'm still waiting for my IUD appt this time. Hopefully I won't have another one!! She sucks!!
loveneverfails, you may notice a supply dip (yea, like you needed that stress!) for a couple days at the beginning of AF. I noticed that when mine came back - baby was fussy and nursing was uncomfortable. I would just nurse more, eat oatmeal & drink water and we wer back to normal soon.
(Sorry; just lurking and not in this DDC. I'm just so proud of you for working so hard for your babies!)

It stinks that you've gotten some form of AF and are breastfeeding! I got a really light AF a couple days after my PP bleeding stopped. I went on the pill because I'm not breastfeeding and it came time for AF a few days ago. Holy cow. My period has never, ever been like this. It's been super heavy except for the first day. I think I'm on day 5 now. I'm not going back on the pill because I think it really screwed with my moods, so I don't know how long it's going to last. Women are the only creatures on earth that are meant to bleed this much and not die. Ugh. Lucky us!
