For the past week, I've been having period like cramps, but have yet to get my period. It's been 6 weeks since having my DD. Is this a normal thing?

  • If your breastfeeding, you'll feel like your cramping because your uterous is still shrinking. Breastfeeding induces contractions that help your uterous shrink back to where it was post pregnancy.
