Hi! I posted my intro about a month ago - we'll my DH and I decided to not prevent conceiving but we aren't actively trying either - anyways, he was away from June 9th until the 25th, so if I conceived it would be from June 25th on...or it could be before he left too, but the spotting just started a few days ago.

Yesterday morning I woke up to a few TINY (about half the size of a small button?) drops of light pink/brown discharge. I was having very mild but noticeable cramping on 7/1 and yesterday - it seems to have subsided today. I had some more discharge last night, only when I wiped and looked could I notice it. I also had some nausea off and on the last few days, but not sure if its the heat? I'm also more exhausted than I've ever been since having Josiah and he's actually sleeping MORE at night just this past week than he ever has..

I guess my question is, did any of you ladies spot during BFing?? I am using a few bottles here and there, but mostly breast - I do use paci's for naps/evenings. I'll be 9 weeks PP this coming sunday! Could I be pregnant too?? I am figuring on taking a test next wednesday, as that would be the earliest I could have conceived..

Did anyone get pregnant this soon after having a baby??? I had a miscarriage last year on July 7th 2007 and conceived Josiah the very next month on August 16th 2007 - so I guess I could be fertile enough to get pregnant again quickly.

I am not ttc but I wanted to respond

I had the same thing happen when Kayori was 2 months old (she is almost 3 months now) I thought I might have been pregnant, but I took a test and it was negative. I spotted very lightly for 2 days and nothing since. I am not to sure if AF is trying to return or not. With my first I had not spotting or bleeding for 11 months.
