I have been wondering if I am pregnant or should be experting my period.

I had a baby on August 11, 2008. I have not had my period yet because I am breastfeeding. But for the past 4 days I have been cramping and I am wondering if it is because I am pregnant or about to start my period. Before I had my daughter I never cramped more then a day before my period. Does anyone have any advice or gone through anything similar?

  • sometimes your period isnt the same after you have a baby i know before i had my daughter i use to have alot of cramping and sore breast but afterwards my period was diffrent i didnt have the cramping like i use to and my breast didnt get sore but everyone is diffrent i suggest you wait to see if your period comes and if it doesnt take a test

  • Both are very possible. You can get pregnant while breastfeeding as well as get your period so the only way to check is a test. I never got any period side effects until after i had my second child. Weird...right? I know.
