After my first dd, I just randomly got my period at about 6 months pp. I remember being surprised by it - I was still exclusively breastfeeding and just hadn't noticed any real body changes leading up to it. In retrospect, I realize my supply diminished a bit but increased pretty quickly after my period.
Six years later I'm almost a year pp with my second dd. Haven't gotten a period yet. However, a few days ago I had that heavy, achey feeling that accompanies ovulation, as well as tons of cm - some ewcm. I assumed I was gearing up to ovulate and have my first period 2 weeks or so later. Last night though I woke up with SERIOUS cramping, loose bowels and achiness. I would have bet a million dollars that I had my period. Went to check and NOTHING. I realize that if I o'd a few days ago I probably wouldn't have my period yet but what's with this awful "phantom period" feeling?
Does anyone remember this? Are first pp periods weird? What's going on here?
