Hi! I'm new here. I am married to my high school sweetheart. I'm from Chicago and 26. I'm a ftm to an amazing little boy who is now 9 weeks old.
So I've been Breastfeeding my son since he was born and got my period at 6 weeks postpartum. I started getting cramping about a week and a half ago and felt like my period was going to start again! These are the same feelings I had when I found I was pregnant with him. It's still too early to test which I did haha negatives..I will be testing again probably Sunday. Anyone else in the same situation??

Not saying you are pregnant or not, but with breastfeeding cramping can be normal. Also it can be normal to not have your period while you breastfeed or have irregular periods. Each body is going to be different and even each time you are pregnant or breastfeed a child will be different. I would test again as you are planning if your period does not come just to make sure. If you are not wanting another one right now what you may want to look into is the mini pill. You can take this while you are breastfeeding.

I forgot to state that I am due for my period on the 25th, so a week from today. Has anyone else experienced cramping like this..this far away from getting next period?
