So i knew id have postpartum cramps, but im starting to get concerned. DD is almost 2 months old now (in 3 days) and im still having bad cramps. Before having her i never had menustral cramps. And im not even sure thats what these are (im not bleeding) But i cramp daily, its pretty uncomfortable and like pretty constantly there too. Anyone else? Should i be concerned, or just kind of waive it away? lol

I didn't have that happen to me.  I had minor cramping on and off during the post partum bleeding and once that went away the cramping went away until I was on my period again.  So here is a bump for you and hopefully someone else can be more helpful.

I have an appt for the 4th, which will be my first ob appt since having her. Crazy they made me wait 8 weeks to be seen. :(

Are you breastfeeding? My daughter is 4 months and I still have random cramping sometimes when she nurses. Sometimes ill cramp after she eats and then like an hour later..I'll start spotting. Doctor said it was normal so I just ignore it now.

yes but the cramping never stops! and it doesnt get worse when im feeding her either. So i dont understand that, but maybe that could be it.

Pregnancy changes our bodies in so many ways. Before I had my son, I had horrible cramping with my periods. Now, I hardly have them at all. I agree though...you should still talk to your OB about it.
