Period Returning Symptoms or Preg. Symptoms?
I am 4 months post partum and breastfeeding.  I have not had a period yet.  We are not using birth control because we would like another child soon anyway.  I have had some cramping in the lowest part of my belly every day for about 3 days now while I'm doing other things around the house that I've not had before and my nipples are sore now for about a week.  I've taken a HPT and have gotten a neg.  Is this just symptoms of my period returning or super early pregnancy symptoms you think?  I also work part time 3rd shift and pump twice during my shift otherwise I breast feed her while I'm not working.

Cant be sure until the test shows positive, but for most women you have cramping while breastfeeding and sore breasts for a while. My period didnt return for 6months after having my daughter since I was breastfeeding. But you never know... give it some time and take another test!
Goodluck!!!

It was indeed my period returning.  I would love to conceive again right away but I wonder how possible it is.  I work part time 2-4 days per week and she is bottle fed during those hours and I pump 1 or 2 times while at work.  I've read that your period may return without ovulating.
