  • Yes, BFing often gave me cramps, I think it makes your uterus contract or something, but don't quote me on that, lol.

  • i did recently... baby is 3m. i'm not sure if it really has to do with Breastfeeding (yes I am)

    at first i kinda freak out like, am i pregnant again!!??

    but it was probably just normal stuff, or something I ate.

  • YES! BF will give you cramps! BF is not only great for your baby, it's great for you too. It makes your uterus shrink at a more rapid rate than not BF. So with that said, that's why you are cramping with no period. I had the murina (sp?) put in, but after I stopped bleeding post partum, I didn't have a period for almost 5 months. But, MAN did I look HOT while BF. Big boobs and small waist. Unfortunately I had some trouble and quit BF earlier than I would have liked. Now I have a big GUT and small BOOBS!! =( lol
