I'm nursing my 3rd baby-- he's almost 4 months now. I've been back at work and pumping so that he is still exclusively on breastmilk.
A couple weeks ago I jumped my husband-- seriously, I woke up and woke him up. Soon after, my abdomen was tightening up, boobs were tingling, and milk supply reduced severely. Could I have gotten pregnant? I was freaking out.
I made sure to take Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle to keep up my supply. I went about my business and kept it to myself.
My period started yesterday. I had been cramping something awful all week. I'm glad and diappointed at the same time. I didn't want another baby 4 months after having one, but this is not the way I wanted to be sure I was not pregnant.
When I took a shower before bed last night, I was bleeding like a stuck pig. It was awful. Like my period, but much worse.
I went to the baby book to read about miscarriage. It gave no useful info, since the purpose of the book is to reassure expectant mothers.
I had been drinking wine, but I'm not sure it made that much of a difference.
I might just be freaking myself out. But I just don't know for sure what happened to me.
