    Default Aunt Flo?

    Apparently I am poorly education on Aunt Flo returning post partum. LO is only 6 weeks old and I think Aunt Flo is making her appearance. I've been strictly breast feeding/pumping and have given up the pump for a good week or two...I thought you didnt get Aunt Flo if you were breast feeding?

    My PP bleeding didn't stop till 6 weeks. Then I thought I was getting AF at 7 weeks, but it was just 2 days of spotting and then nothing, DS is almost 14 weeks and still nothing.

    There is a name for this phenomenon, and I can never recall what it is, but it happened to me with my first baby as well. It was a year before my cycles returned and I wasnt ovulating in that time.
