Hi Everybody! I am feeling so anxious today that I finally had to delurk. My sitch is this; AF 3 times since DS was born (he is 15 months). Have been charting, but my cycle has been erratic. 13 dpo I had a + pg test, but 14 & 15 dpo have had cramping, no blood. DS has been sick for the past 3 days and night nursing like CRAZY. My theory is that the extra nursing = more prolactin + uterine cramping, and could = M/C. Any thoughts? Thanks-

Could = miscarriage, could = implantation and a healthy baby burrowing deep into the endometrium. Most likely = stretching pregnant uterus and mild dehydration leading to you feeling the uterine contractions caused by nursing more intently.
Drink more water- that should help.

I believe some cramping is normal early in pg. You haven't had any spotting with the cramping?

Also, I just had to post to tell you that your word "delurk" cracked me up.

take care!

nope. no spotting-- and boy, sometimes I am scared to look. DS is feeling better- not nursing as much today. I think the reason I had a long enough luteal phase to implant successfully was because he night-weaned for about 4 days right before he got sick. Of course, maybe that's why he got sick! Anyways, fingers crossed my litle blastocyst stays put.
thanks!

I had crazy cramping with my first pg...I would think it is a good sign! Things are getting busy in there! Good luck!

: I cramped a lot with ds, and I am cramping quite a little bit with this one. It's just your uterus stretching to accommodate the new guest. I say POAS.
