BF & AF question

So I am 8 months PP and no AF yet. I don't mind her being gone at all, lol. But I keep cramping like AF is going to start soon or those early pg cramps. Please tell me this is normal! I have had patches of EWCM, like my body is trying to gear up, but nothing so far. I do not want to be pregnant any time soon, so it's a little unnerving...

Re: BF & AF question

If you are not abstaining then anything is possible, even with bc. I got my first pp af at 5 months and I sooo thought I was pregnant! Even though I was charting and used a barrier method during what seemed like fertile times. It was tricky bc I had two! times that I seemed fertile. The first was very short and then went away and then the second time was very obvious. I still had to test for peace of mind.

Yeah, I am probably going to order some HPT's to ease my mind. I was hoping I was not alone in they way I was feeling, lol

Re: BF & AF question

I didn't get AF back until last month-my dd is almost 11 months old now. We'll see how regular they are. But, yeah, I had those "early pregnancy-type" cramps for about a month before I actually started! HTH!

Re: BF & AF question

I'm in the same boat. My DD is 7 months now and no AF yet. I got my first AF 5 months after my son was born. So I was expecting it before now. I get cramping sometimes too, and think its coming but it hasn't yet. I have tested a couple of times just to be sure. I hope I am like some of you ladies and go until 10-11 months.
