    Question How do you know if you're PG if you never get AF?

    So, I've been nursing my son for 8 months and I got some sort of AF back last night. It was the darker color, if you know what I mean, and there's wasn't much of it. Does this mean I'm back in the baby making business? I've been crampy and feeling wierd, light headed, etc. How would I know if this is AF or a new baby and early spotting. I spotted with my son like this. How do you know if you're pregnant if you didn't get AF back? Thanks

    If you're concerned in any way that you "could be", then the best thing to do is get a cheap dollar store test and find out.

    I third that, POAS when enough time from the suspected date has passed.

    I agree. I would take one test a month just to be sure.
