The past few days I have been getting intermittent menstrual like abdominal cramping.
I have been tandem nursing for 11 months now and haven't had any previous signs of my menses returning. I'm wondering if any other Mammas experienced sensations like this.
I suppose I better prepare my Moon Pads just in case
Any thoughts would be appreciated

I experienced those sensations a few times in intervals of a couple of months before my period finally returned at 24 months post-partum.

I also had some menstrual like cramping for 1-2 months before AF returned at 14.5 months pp.

Yep, the pains showed up a few weeks before my first AF during DD's 13th month.

I've been having light crampy feelings off and on for a few months now. Dd is 18 months and no period yet, so it might be sometime soon. Dh can't wait to get started on the next baby.

AF returned at 13mo pp last time and I had crampiness off and on from probably 9 months on so I think I was just gearing up for the big party.
