What did it feel like just before your first period whilst still BF?

DS is 10 months and feeds very often so I wasn't expecting them back yet.

But I have classic period-style cramps - in fact it feels a bit like early labour - VERY painful.

Is this it?

Libido is also returning ever so slightly, would that coincide?

Oh, mine has just come back today! DS 10 mo too. For the last week I had horrible cramps, felt really sick. Then knackered today (ds teething though so no sleep!) and have flu-ey symptoms. Then hey presto, there it is!
Libido hasn;t been seen since early 2007 though blush

Oh, sympathies, combined with your poor DS teething - no fun is it.

My milk always disappeared just before my period was due (preggers now so not any more hooray!) but this meant a cranky hungry baby who wanted to continously feed while i had PMT. Not a good combination.

Sounds very similar to mine. They (the mother of all periods) came back after 12 months. Remember feeling quite dizzy with a thumping headache too as well as very hormonal. After 4 periods now they seem to be settling down a bit.

Mine came back about ten months too. I felt really 'odd' before it came. Light headed, bit sicky. Then i had grumbling period achyness. My CS scar hurt - bizarelly, so too did my pelvis. I got spotty.

Still, the penny didn't drop until it finally came, a week or so afterwards. I get terrible aching at the top of my thighs during my period. Oh the joys...

Hmm. Well, I don't really know. all I can say is that I didn't have sex at all after my DS1 was born, just didnt' fancy it/too tired etc. Then one night I REALLY fancied it [plus huge Pimms!]. And I got pregnant that night. Eeek! So I have a 16mth age gap between my two boys, and got pregnant whilst BF exclusively, not having had a period, and having had sex just once.

So I'd say...be careful unless you'd like a lovely surprise in 9 mths! x
