Apparently breastfeeding twins isn't enough to keep her away from me....

Oh well I guess I had a long enough break. I haven't really had one since last May/early June due to all the meds getting ready for IVF.

I was really hoping though that I was going to be one of the ones who doesn't get it back until after breastfeeding.

Hugs hon! I got mine back after 8 months and was still BFing Hailey. I was also on vacation of course and it was bad. I'm hoping this time it stays away a lot longer.

Hugs! I'm so sorry for you!

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!!

Maybe its just spotting then. I have no idea but it felt like full force for about an hour or so, bright red too, then all of the sudden just gone. I have no idea but I hope it doesn't come back.

I bleed every day due to the depo shot. I'll never get this birth control again.

That really stinks - you definitely deserve a full year with no AF. It has not returned for me although I still have some pp bleeding (almost 10 weeks later - so).

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!
