What was it like for you?

I've heard horror stories about how heavy it is normally. I just started mine, I think, on Monday (I'm nursing). It's been super light for me. Like basically, at most, heavy spotting at times. Other times, next to nothing. Anyone else have a really light PP AF?

I didn't get mine until I was almost 17m PP. It wasn't any different than mine used to be. I've heard of horror stories, but nothing like that here. I got my second one 46 days later, so pretty spaced out. The second one was a day or two longer than usual, but nothing else abnormal about it. My periods are always pretty light.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I've never had super heavy periods .... but usually have a couple days that are normal/heavier .... nothing like that here.

I'm still nursing, but my periods have always come back well before I stop nursing ... I just honestly don't remember them ever being this light.

It basically only lasted 3 days and was just really light. I guess I'll just have to wait to see when the next one shows up.

You guys that go for so long between periods are so lucky. I had the girls at 28 weeks and post partum bleeding was super light. Lasted 2-3 weeks and than 2 weeks later a heavy period. Two weeks later a period again. Than evened out to every 28 days. I was pumping but still got period. My periods since the girls has been super heavy.

I haven't had many since the boys birth and they weren't bad at all, the first couple days of PP bleeding was bad though.

I got mine about a month after the bleeding from giving birth had stopped. From what I remember, it wasn't bad at all...just like a normal AF.

It took forever for me to get mine, can't remember, but maybe 14 months or so. It was and still is super light. Not bad at all, not bad cramps either.

Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!
