bleeding? bit personal

my son is six months old and i still havent had a period. about 2 weeks ago i had a bit, just enough for a tissue and i thought for the last two weeks that i might be pregnant again ( this happened last time) i have tummy cramps and feel crap but the test was negative this morning. if im not pregnant im a bit concerned about the bleeding, how and when did everyone else period start, sorry if this is a bit personal,does it start really gradually?
oh and im still breastfeeding

As far as I am aware, you don't get a period while breastfeeding.But I would wait for someone else to comments, as I am not 100% sure.

I can't remember the details, I think it just appeared on morning when my daughter was 6 months old. I remember being very disappointed!

Just saw the last line!
I was still breastfeeding at the time. It varies from person to person, and most importantly how much you are feeding at nighttime, oddly! Mothers whose babies sleep through the night get their periods back sooner.

I got my period back when he was 11 months old and it was shortly after I had night weaned him

I didn't get one till Beebe was 10 months, I had a very small bleed and like you wondered if I was pregnant, it took a few months to establish itself, I know everyone's different and if you're at all worried I'd see a Dr or HV!

As everyone else has said it varies from person to person and i think we all go through a moment where we think we may be pregnant again so you're not alone there :)
I was bleeding on and off from about 6 weeks because i was put on the mini pill and it didn't agree with me so basically i was bleeding from after birth til about 3 months after Ella was born :O
I wouldn't worry too much just be careful sex wise hehehe
