Hi....

I had my son on march 28th. Since.. like clockwork.. on the 28th of april.. may.. june I got my period. the july started on the 22nd and ended 5 days later. DH & I "bd" yesterday afternoon and after one hour. .I began to spot.. using a panty liner. When I got up this am.. I had dark heavy flow. Since.. its been about 12 hrs.. its gone to a very light flow. Should I consider this another period or a possible m/c?

I have bought a OPT and would like to know if I start it counting yesterday as day one of my period or base it on the expected dates 19-21st of August assuming I get a period then? And when should I start the OPT testing? Yea... We're tryin for number 2 as I'm not getting any younger!!! I'm 40, will be 41 in November...

TIA for any input...

Congratulations on the birth of your son! I am a bit suprised that AF showed up so soon after giving birth. When I had my kids it always took about 6 months to finally get AF back and my last pregnancy (at age 46) I did not get AF back for 1 year! Actually the thought that I had just gone into menopause did occur LOL! Anyhow... are you breast feeding your baby? Often breastfeeding will delay AF as the hormones inhibit O and this is probably why I had such a delay with AF. I know this is a bit early for AF given your reliable schedule but it certainly would NOT be a m/c this early as you just had AF July 22. I would guess that your July 22nd cycle was just a weird one. I had many early m/c while TTC - would test +ve but then AF would show up at CD29 and never experienced anything but regular AF. I would count this as CD1 ... are you temping?

Hope you get pregnant soon! Best of luck ~ Pat

Pat...

Yea.... I bf for the first 3 months.. he got gas so bad I had to quit. It was easier to switch to formula than to do the process of elimination while my son suffered!

I just started taking my temp.... I've never "tried" to get pg.. cuz I was told that my tubes were not so good and I'd need IVF. But my son's proof that I can get pg!!! I bought one of those OPT kits and am supposed to start that on the 20th. I will count Saturday as day one.. and go from there. I'll be pretty ticked off if I get another AF in two weeks.

and for the menopause.. LMAO.. when I was pg with Karl Bryan.. I thought it was menopause too!!! I had hot flashes... dizziness... and my boobs ached off and on... kept getting cramps and was way way bloated!! My GF suggested I test.. and it was positive!!

Someone suggested that the AF's I've experienced are not reglular as they arrived on the same day of the month... and that this AF is the first "real" one. I dunno!!! I'm just gonna do the temps & the OPT and see what happens!! And have LOTS of fun!!!


Good Luck to you and thanks for respondin to me!!
