Hi everyone! I just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl (Eva) in July. I attempted breast-feeding for the first month but I wasn't producing enough, so I had to stop. I started my first post-baby period on August 20th. It was VERY heavy and lasted for about 6 days. It is now September 28th and I have not had another period yet! I am VERY concerned that possibly I am pregnant again...or is it just that my cycle is not normal? I will buy a test at the end of the week if I do not have a period, but has anyone else experienced this?
hi cheryl23 congratulations on your new baby yeah im going through the same at the moment i have a nearly 13 week old girl i am breastfeeding though around 6 times a day i had a period not long after my baby was born now i am having weird things happen had mild cramps in my lower abdomen like my periods are going to start but never do sore breasts have you had any of these symptoms usually the cramps are your uterus stretching should we be able to feel these seeing as how we only just had babys i also did a pregnancy test about 4 days ago that was negative hop[e i havent scared you good luck take a test let us no how you go also any advice thrown this way would be good thanx amanda
Thanks for the feedback. No, I just feel REALLY bloated...like I do right before my period. But because there has been no period, I just feel bloated. I have completely stopped breastfeeding for about 2 months, so I just don't know when I should go back to normal...it's just strange. I'm going to take a test on Friday.
Thanks for the support. I will definitely keep you posted! Congrats on your daughter too...what's her name??

I havent had my period since Oct. and I am scared because I haven't been on my period for a long time and it is scaring me to death. What is happening??? I am only 12 yrs old. My mom doesnt know what to do.
So what can I do????
