It could just be that your body is trying to get back to normal from your pregnancy.  It can take a while for your hormones and your body to get back to normal.  Is it possible that you could have gotten pregnant again?  If so, it could possibly be a miscarriage.  If you are worried about it then you should call your dr.  If you are not sure, then you could just try and wait it out to see if and when it stops.  Good luck and keep me posted
