I had my first post partum period at the beginning of October. I think it started on the third. This morning (16th) I started spotting.

It's like a mucousy-dark reddish blood (sorry ) I was trying to think why this would be happening.

I've been doing sit up's the past couple night's (trying to banish 'baby belly'). Would that cause bleeding? My abdomen is definitely sore...

Bleeding can happen for lots of reasons - especially during the post partum return of fertility when things are bound to be a little irregular at first.

Breakthough bleeding occurs due to a sharp rise in hormone as your body tries to ovulate. Withdrawal bleeding occurs when there is a crash in hormone after an attempt to ovulate that failed. Implantation bleeding occurs 7-10 days following conception. And then of course, menstration is what occurs 11-16 following ovulation.

If you chart your cervical mucus patterns, it's possible to determine what kind of bleeding it is. However, given the date of your last period and the fact that you are seeing mucus with it, I'm inclined to think you're probably having a breakthrough bleed. Welcome back fertility!
