Hello,
Just had my 3rd child .... a little (or should I say BIG) boy 7 weeks ago. My bleeding after birth went away after about 4 weeks. For the last week I have been majorly bloated and cramping with slight backache. I just feel awful! I am not bleeding but spotting light brown and sometime pinkish but very lightly. I do not think this is a period. My bloating is out of control though and cramping is so uncomfortable. My stomach was almost flat a week ago and now I look 4 months pregnant again.. LOL!
Did this happen to anyone else. If this is PMS... this is the longest PMS I have ever had and worst case of it as well. Any similar stories or advice would be helpful and greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

I had the same thing. I thought it was my uterus contracting, which was pert of it, but it was also gas. I started taking psyllim husk fibre and digestive enzymes and it seems to be handling the bloating and cramps.

ONe symptom sounded familiar I had to go back to the hospital postpartum I couldnt move due to cramping around the uterus area! Everymove hurt ! Showering didnt help - just nothing! Then i noticed a fever, immediately i phoned the doctor and was admitted back and had an infection, I bleed extra as well. Glad i went back since I was very ill and couldnt hardly be a new stay at home mommy to my newborn! :( But the hospital took great care of me and controlled my blood pressure which i didnt even know it was "high" no symtoms of it....im glad i got healthy and fast for my family.
