I gave birth 7 1/2 months ago and have not yet had AF (due to nursing). Other than the first couple of weeks after giving birth, I hadn't had any cramping up until today. It kind of feels like menstrual cramps but it feels more like the type of cramping I had when my uterus was contracting after birth. I did do a lot of strenuous yard work yesterday. Is it possible to still be having activity-related uterine pain this long after birth? I can't figure out if AF is trying to come back or if I just overdid it with the hedge-trimming and raking or what. My lower back and abdomen have been aching/throbbing since this morning with no letup but I'm not having any other AF symptoms. Has anyone else experienced anything like this 7 months postpartum?
