Sorry if this is TMI. For those BTDT mommies, I have a question. Camden is 8 weeks old today and I started bleeding bright red blood AGAIN full force tonight. The first 5 weeks I bled (obviously) and then it stopped completely for a few days then started up again, then stopped for the past week, then started up again tonight. I know it's normal to bleed for up to 6 weeks, but I don't know about the starting and stopping. Do you think it's my period? I thought breastfeeding was supposed to alter it? I HATE not knowing where I'm at in my "cycle" Any input would be great! Thx!

Something similar happened to me.....not enough rest and stress and what not can effect the bleeding, try not to over do it, take it easy. I know for me if I was doing laundry and walking around and do stuff I'd start bleeding again.

Mine stopped a few days later and then I didn't get AF until 6 months later. GL!

It is probably leftover pp bleeding. I had some light bleeding at about 4 or 5 weeks and then again around 8w so I thought it was AF but it never turned into anything. I am now almost 7 mo pp and haven't seen a drop since.

I bled for about 8 weeks, often it was very, very light and then it got a little darker towards the end and I thought it was my period but now I don't think it was. I haven't had any bleeding since then and no periods (and no, I'm not pregnant ) - I'm just over 3 months PP now.
