ok had ds2 8 weeks ago yesterday. i had blood loss for about 3 weeks and then it stopped. then i started bleeding again 2 weeks ago which lasted a week and if im reading the signs correctly i ovulated 11 days after the 1st day of what i presume was my period.

so is this my cycle started again and is it normal for me to have ovulated so early in the cycle? prior to being pg i usually had a 30/31 day cycle. i am bfing btw.
