each pregnancy is different, and i had a lot more pain in my 3rd pregnancy than in my first 2. if it is related to the breastfeeding, it would probably be due to what you are taking in. when you are pregnant and bfing, the nutrients first go to baby in belly, then baby on boob, then you. you may want to talk to your dr about uping vitamins or just making sure everything that you eat counts.

I don't think that's due to breastfeeding. I'm 17 weeks and nursing my 21 month old. My doctor said towards the end of my pregnancy I may get crampy while breastfeeding, but that it wasn't labor and it was nothing to worry about. What you're describing almost sounds like arthritis.

Is it only when you are nursing? I haven't experienced that or heard anyone else with it, but I'm sure it's possible. I had to wean my daughter when I was around 3 months pregnant, because I was so sick and it my supply was going away. It was painful to nurse. She was 29 months and already down to just a few nurses a day. Have you tried contacting a lactation consultant?
