Okay, I'll try to make this brief but I'm not good at that.

With DD1 I got anovulatory AF back at 4.5 months PP. I had 2 more anov. cycles until I ovulated for the first time at 10.5 months PP, and had ovulatory cycles from there on out until I got pregnant at 18 months PP. All this time I was charting (since 1 month PP) so I have a pretty good record of stuff. FTR, DD co-slept and nursed all through the night during that entire time (along with all day, obviously).

So...now DD2 is here. She nurses all day but has STTN most of the time since day 1 (despite my attempts to encourage otherwise). However, in the past month she has started nursing once or twice in the night. Anyway, I'm 6.5 months PP and I have had no sign of AF returning or ovulation (despite my body feeling like it numerous times). Again, I'm charting during all of this.

But, for the past few weeks I've had that achey pully crampy feeling, like in early pregnancy. I've had quite an increase in CM as well for a couple weeks, although that's tapered off a bit. I've taken several HPT's and they're all negative.

I guess what I'm wondering is, since this is different than my last experience, is it NORMAL for me to feel like this and not have anything obvious going on? (no AF, no ovulation, no pregnancy) I just figured I should ask because while the crampy feeling isn't constant nor is it painful (just "there" I guess), I wonder if I need to go to my OBGYN or something?

(I had a UC with this one- everything was normal, PP bleeding was normal, no problems whatsoever...and I just don't want to have to discuss my birth with my OBGYN- who also delivered my first daughter)
