Had baby May 4th...

when should I expect my first period? I bleed for 3 weeks, she's 6 weeks now. I really want it LOL! I know in a few months I'll be screaming I'm sick of it but I'm ready to start my birthcontrol but I can't until I have it. I'm so not ready to have another baby!

- not breastfeeding.....bash feel free but its what works for me & child

  • well it can take a few months, or it can come like clockwork.You are only about 6 weeks post partum so I would guess at least another couple weeks, really no way to predict mama. hang in there and use protection :).

  • Its pretty bad that so many woman on cafe mom are so horrible to the other moms that we feel the need to say "go ahead and bash".... isn't that aweful? This is supposed to be a site for support, but so many woman feel the need to ask "please no bashing" or to say "bash if you must".
    But to try and answer your question... I think you should probably be expecting it without two weeks or so... Didn't you have a six week check up? Did you ask your doctor?

  • MJ- Yeah I had my 6 week check up Tuesdsay. She asked if I had it yet I told her no, she said thats ok. So I'm just anxious to get it!

    & I agree I put it on everything I asked. I try not to bash when it comes to stuff like this but when folks are cheating on their man or something like that dependin on the situation I sometimes bash too. So I'm probably not better lol.

    Thanks Anon!
