Messed up AF

Ladies I know there's prob no right/wrong answer here but I'm a little freaked out so thought I'd come on and get some opinions.

Long story short AF was delayed a good while after dd was born, only came back last oct/nov, and it's been erratic to say the least.
Longest cycle was 29 days shortest 24, the very first month was just spotting but then onwards most months it's been very very heavy & very painful.
AF was due yesterday & I started spotting on Tuesday so thought that was the start of it/it was just early.
I've been spotting now for three days & when I wipe now its pink/brown not bright red/not getting heavier, if anything it seems to be stopping not coming on full flow.
If it was soon after dd I'd put it down to AF getting established again but after several heavy months this doesn't feel like a period - would you worry about that?

We're not ttc at all right now but we have dtd a few times this month but *mostly* we've been careful about condom etc now I'm just second guessing myself . . .

Also to add, looking at my AF app I'm pretty sure one of the dates we fooled around was close to ov, and I'm just getting over a bad thrush bout - which I got this time 2 yrs ago too just before I got my BFP on dd.

I know the obvious answer is to take a test but I feel silly because I'm mostly certain its v unlikely

You ans your own question, get one and test. Ot could be a million things but you can def rule out one by testing xxx

I know hun, part of me just feels so silly for even thinking I could be & I don't want the drama of having to buy a pg test with DH home all weekend and then its bfn & it's all drama for no reason.
Hopefully AF just rears her head now properly tonight/tomorrow morning & I'll know for defo.
If not I'll try poas in secret on Sunday!

This pregnancy was very much a shock for me, I know for a fact there wasn't any oopps from dec onwards, but here I am being kicked away cas baby was coming no matter what. Your not silly in anyway, but for your own sanity if nothing happens you need to test. Stress of thinking what if can delay it coming too and it will be a circle. xxxx

Don't know what's going on more pink/brown discharge but only when I wipe & I'm only wearing a panty liner 'just in case'.
Will see what happens tomorrow . . .

Oh I know, initially I was freaked & thinking its so not on the cards right now, then I said to DH casually that AF was a day late 'imagine I was pg, ha ha' and to my shock he shrugged & went 'wanna bro or sis?' To dd and laughed, now I'm sure he thinks I'm just late, but still, its a nice reaction. Now I'm a bit 50/50, and prob swaying towards being a lil sad if AF just arrives as normal. So sill I know!!

I know, but DH I'd weird - I'd say he thinks me being actually pg is so unlikely that's why he was so cool ha.
Maybe tomorrow or Monday if no show by then.
I'm due to collect a prescription on Tuesday too so could always pop in and ask GP too . X

AF just arrived. Thought I'd be relieved but I'm actually a bit gutted.
I know we weren't ttc but I thought maybe this was natures way of just making things happen & found myself feeling happy, ah well . . .
I guess if anything it tells me that yes, I am hoping to have #2 sooner rather than later but I'm really surprised at how sad I feel.
So weird, it's not like I even thought there was a good chance of it, it was just a 'maybe'.
Just sank a glass of vino and a Cadbury dairymilk :D
