Return of AF? — The Bump

Return of AF?

I have been having a lot of issues with supply the past couple of days.  I thought maybe she was having a growth spurt and that could still be it, but I am thinking that maybe AF is making its return.  

Did your supply drop before AF returned?  Did it go back to normal within a few days?

    Yes. AF has been back from me since week 5. Every, stinking month my supply drops the first couple days of AF and a couple days before. When AF starts to let up, my supply comes back.

    Since DD gets formula too, I just give her a little bit more than normal. Not a ton because I still want her to nurse to encourage my supply but enough to make sure she isn't going hungry and getting frustrated. She is also on solids now too so that helps.

  • Thanks!

    I have also been extremely stressed and tired the past couple of days, so that could possibly be the cause too.  I am looking forward to life going back to normal, so hopefully it does.

  • I take a lactate support vitamin that helps keep things regulated no matter what is going on. I am especially mindful to take it during that time of the month.

  • Yes -- My supply would drop a bit right before AF showed and then would return a few days after AF was gone.  Granted, I don't believe I am having a 'true' AF since I have spotting/bleeding for 2-3 days and then it's nothing, but it comes about every 30 days so it's on the right schedule.

     

    I know with DD1 my supply would drop too for AF.
