My dd is 17 months and AF has been back for 5 months now. I am usually between 28-30 days and it is day 33. I'm not going to ask if anyone knows I'm pregnant, because you won't know that.
What I would like to know is, are pregnancy symptoms different than when you aren't bf?
I am occasionally naseasous and my sense of smell is very heightened like I am while prego. My boobs don't hurt, but not sure if thats because I am still bf my dd about 3-4 times during the day and 2-3 at night.

My symptoms have been the same but my boobs haven't been tender or gotten bigger. I am almost 8 weeks preggo and breast feeding my 14 month old.

Hmmm. Sounds like me. This, if I am prego, will be baby 6 but child 4 (2 miscarriages). The other ones were very far apart, like 9 and 7 years, that I wasn't bf during them. This is all new territory for me.

My first two were spaced almost twelve years, so I know what you mean.

Just remember, EVERY pregnancy for any woman can be different. Even if the ones before mirrored each other, a new pregnancy CAN be different. Your best bet is just to test.

Much of the time they're exactly the same, actually. Or they're nonexistent.

It's quite normal for breastfeeding to have your cycle suddenly go off kilter.

I got pregnant when my youngest was 14 months...the symptoms were exactly the same for me....even the sore boobs.
