My DS is 15 months, still nursing around the clock and I haven't had my PPAF yet. I got it back at 12 months with his older sister even though I think we were nursing about at the same rate. I was super nauseous last Friday and then have been sort of crampy feeling since. Supply has also dipped. Has anyone had any symptoms prior to their PPAF returning? My husband had a vasectomy after our second, so I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant.
I would say those signs are a good indication of your AF returning. I actually came online to ask something similar. I have had awful cramps for the last three days, assuming my 1st PPAF is imminent, but didn't get it after my son's birth for about 9 months. I'm only 6 months postpartum right now. I was wondering about the cramps, and if it is normal to have them for several days like this beforehand. I have heard though, that your supply may lessen right before your AF starts, so you might want to have something on hand just in case!

Thanks moonmama - hope you're feeling better. As for me, after a week of nausea, cramps, and just a "feeling" in my uterus area, the symptoms disappeared and no PPAF arrived. I was like 90% sure I was pregnant because it was the EXACT same feeling, even though that would be statistically impossible given the vasectomy :) So still not sure what it was. Very strange.
