I have been spotting since delivering 4 weeks ago but it had been pretty light, no clots and pinkish.
But last night and today it's been bright red, a few small clots , heavier and accompanied by back aches and some cramping.
Could I have already started my period?
And how do you tell the difference between starting your cycle vs normal postpartum bleeding/spotting?!
I called my doctor's office and they said that I should try and take it easy today because it's not normal for bleeding to pick up like I described. I told them that I am exclusively breastfeeding and they said it shouldn't be my period this soon BUT these cramps sure feel like period cramps and last night before bed all I could think about was a chocolate candy bar.
Now I'm suppose to call tomorrow if it doesn't slow down with taking it easy today but I really wonder if I'm just one of those ladies that starts (really really) early.
Hmm...still confused, so I suppose I'll see what happens today and go from there...
