Ok, I really need some advice or more like to hear some other moms who have had this happen to them. My baby boy is almost 10 weeks old. I had a c section for him. And I have not had a period yet. Just last week when he was about 8 and a half weeks old I had some spotting and cramping. A couple times it was really heaven for 5 mins ten nothing again. It went on for about 5 days. I know there's always a possibility I could be pregnant but I was wondering if maybe that was my period and if its normal to be that light the first time? Would like to hear from some moms who had this happened and they weren't pregnant. I'm scared to death lol. I'm going to take a test soon just need some advice til then to keep me sane. :) thanks.

Thanks. Def using protection now just wasn't sure if maybe the light bleeding I had was maybe my period. I'm hoping it was.

There really is no "normal" period after birthing a child. Everyone is different. I had really weird periods after each child, and for me it did not balance out until a few months after I started having them again. If you are concerned, of course see a doctor.

But in the meantime, use protection.
