I've been breastfeeding my son for 6 months now. I had very light spotting the last couple of days.. does this mean I will get my period soon? If so, when? Anyone else encounter this?

Thanks! Well, I'm not looking forward to it! lol And it's just so weird because I haven't noticed any spotting at all today.. so I guess I just need to be prepared.

Yes it sounds like you've gotten your period back, just because your breastfeeding doesn't mean you never get a period. Plenty of women get there period back within the first 2 months even if they are breastfeeding. It shouldn't have any effect on breastfeeding although you may see a dip in your supply around the time you get your period, but it should come right back. And just because you got your period this month doesn't mean you'll get one every month. Mine came back around 7 months I got it very inconsistently for 3 months and then stopped getting it, I also have the mirena which could be why I don't get it now.
