Any breastfeeding moms have cramps?

My LO is 7 months old and is EBF. I haven't gotten my period back yet, but still have cramps. Like the first few days she was born, I'd have contractions still while she nursed, but those went away. Now, I just keep getting cramps (not while I'm feeding her) that feel like I'm about to start my period or something, but I don't. Does this happen to anyone else?

  • Some people get kinda crampy during ovulation. Practice safe sex! Even if you haven't gotten your period yet, you might get pregnant.
