I'm currently 9.5 months post partum, and seems like my first period is coming I've been exclusively breastfeeding and in the last two weeks I have had some breakthrough bleeding/spotting for a day, and then back to nothing. It seems my period is finally on its way now though, and I'm dreading it - with DD1 it was like the floodgates of hell opened up, but she was formula fed and I'm wondering if it might be different this time.

Any BF mammas out there to tell me about your first post partum period while exclusively breastfeeding? I'm wondering if it might be a light period due to the BF hormones, or if I'm about to experience hell unleashed again
