First pp period

What was yours like?
I've never nursed this long (15 months)
I vaguely remember my first AF after dd1
I remember that it was light but not much else(she was a about 8 month and I had just quit nursing)
I only had that one period before getting pregnant with dd2

So, it appears AF has finally decided she has given me enough space and rudely barged in to my home

Usually, once I'm aware I've actually started, it does not take long for debilitating cramps and super heavy flow to begin
This typically lasts the first 1-2 days, then I'm able to function

Well...it seems in just spotting? It's light pink with some brown sometimes
And while I am crampy, it's extremely mild from what I used to get...I would even say I'm not really cramping much at all

Is this normal?
I Poas sun morning and was neg (I had been Poas weekly until I got either a bfp or AF)

EVERYTHING is in the realm of normal on this one!! For me I get completely normal regular periods after 15 months.

Sounds normal. My first couple PP periods were really light.

I've also heard the opposite, for many moms the first one is very heavy and painful.

Sounds normal.. keeping in mind there is a wide range of normal!

Mine has returned the same way after all four births.. around twelve months post partum and the first is the same as the rest to come, no transitional phases. I love being predictable, LOL!

 Mine had no cramping but was very heavy for about 4/5 days.
