So I'm 7 weeks pp now, around week 5 I finally stopped bleeding/spotting. Around weeks 6 I started spotting (very little and no need for a liner) again and had that wet feeling down there. Now at the start of week 7 I had what I would consider the start of my period or the end of it. It's a bit heavier than the spotting I've had but it's mucusy plus I need the liner (even went through one while I was out for 3 hours). Sorry for the tmi but I need to explain this best I can. Could this be my period starting up again or still part of normal pp bleeding? I'm ebf and this pp bleeding has been the longest I've had to date. I've always stopped by week 4 with my past two babies. I'm just really confused and wondering if my fertility could be returning already. If it is I want to be sure so I can protect myself and chart properly to avoid.

If you're EBFing (no pumping, no supplementing) - then all bleeding up to 56 days is considered part of your lochia and not related to fertility returning. There can be some mucusy stuff as part of lochia too. Many women notice an increase in bleeding around 6 weeks PP from shifting hormones after birth, or from doing too much physically. Nothing to worry about!

I'm pumping on occasion after I nurse to build a stash for when I need it. So far I haven't introduced a bottle and don't plan on it yet. As long as it's normal them I don't mind. I just know that dh is getting very anxious so we'll need to be careful just in case.
