DD was born at home in May. I had a slow recovery in part bc of a pretty long labor and in part because I had to go back to classes and do lots of other running around very shortly after birthing her, but my mid to late July I was mostly back to normal.
Now something is going on. I got my period back 8 weeks PP (darn law school classes--three hours long and no time to pump). I should have had a period a week ago but only had spotting. I've been really irritable and a bit nauseated and tired, so I tested for pregnancy, but it has been negative.
Yesterday I started getting soreness, especially at the site where I got a small large-ish skidmark birthing DD (pretty small, but large enought the midwife offered a stitch, which I declined). Now today I am again having really intense pelvic pressure, especially when I squat at all. The feeling is almost exactly like that achy, stretched-out pressure I had immediately post-partum.
I'm really confused by all these things going on. I haven't really been charting or anything, and I don't know how, if at all, these symptoms might tie in with breastfeeding, with returning fertility, or with the recent pregnancy.
Last week I was sure I was pg again, now I'm just frustrated with feeling like I'm newly post-partum again.
Anyone have any idea what all this could mean?
