I'm almost positive my first pp Af is right around the corner. I have the slight cramps and lower back ache. But I'm also feeling Braxton Hicks like contractions every time I BF which is really uncomfortable. My dd will be 1 on March 1. Whats up with that? Is there a link between AF and contractions. How can I make them go away?

I think that when you nurse there is a good chance your uterus always tightens, but that you are extra sensitive since your AF is coming back.<br><br>
And that first ppaf is usually a doozie. Extra crampy, heavy, achy, ect.<br><br>
I think that the only thing you can do to fix it is wait. I imagine some ibuprofen or a glass of wine might help you feel better<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
