I posted the other day about my periods not being back yet - well seems like I spoke too soon! I am having my first period since 2009 as I didn't get my periods back between pregnancies, and it's horrible!
I had a week of feeling really depressed and anxious for no reason which I now realise was PMT (I always used to suffer with it), now my period is SO heavy and I feel wiped out. Is this normal for a first period, and do they settle down?
My first postpartum AF was when DD was 9 months old... and it was pretty bad. The flow was quite heavy. I've had 3 in total (so far) and they are still heavier than pre-pregnancy, but my cramps aren't as bad. I would say that they have gotten lighter though (from 1st to the past AF).
