Is it possible to get ovulation pains when I am still EBF at 7.5 months?? Today I felt some strong pinching in my left ovary (I am very in tune with my body) but I haven't gotten AF (I got AF last time 2 months after I weaned 100%). I am still EBF (we tried solids a couple of times and my baby was NOT interested so will wait a little bit before trying again, he seems really happy on BM right now). Is it possible to get those pinches or twinges when I am still BFing around the clock, still co-sleeping, etc?? Anyone have this happen? Just trying to keep myself from getting worried that it could be something else. It lasted maybe 10 seconds and haven't felt anything since.

it is totally possible, MDC is full of ladies that got AF back while EBF and a lot of them even earlier than 7 months. if you dont want to get preggo again, use protection, dont count on EBF to do the trick 100%

Thanks for the reply Adorkable (I remember you from the PG board... seems like so long ago doesn't it lol?)! I haven't actually gotten AF yet, that's why the pinching seemed weird but haven't had any since that one time.

Btw your twins are so cute! :)

it could be a number of things, O pain, or a muscle spasm or something..  for me, post-babies if i am going to ovulate, that kind of pain lingers on and off for 2-3 weeks along with cramping and CM - it is too much to ignore for at least 2 weeks and then - a week or so after it stops i get AF .. also, with my 3rd baby AF came back at 4.5 months. yup. 4.5 months while tandem nursing .. (with my first 2 kids it came back a couple months after really starting solids.. ) anyway, it is very common to have fertility symptoms on and off while breastfeeding and have it mean nothing..
