Good evening lovely mummies,

Firstly I do hope you all had a great summer and secondly I apologise for not taking part more lately I have been away to visit my family and introduce baby Dorian to everyone, then I went to nursery with him and now I am back at work, I cant believe he will soon be 6 months!

Anyway I am posting tonite in order to find out if anyone is like me or if I am a circus freak!

It seems that my body is not realising that I am not pregnant anymore.

I gave birth by C section on 11/03/08 and my weird body is:

- Still producing milk even though I have only tried to breastfeed for 1 day

- Has only had 1 period

- Still shows the black line on my belly

- Often has reflux

Do you think all this is normal or should I see a doctor????

Well take care for now and speak to you soon.

yes... if you're not pg you should go and see your gp. bit of reflux is one thing, but making milk that's another. when was your period?

It can take quite a while for your body to return back to normal after having a baby. I was still producing milk way after a stopped b/f. I'm talking months.

See your gp if you are worried

I didn't have the black line, but everything else - yup. I didn't worry (drphobic) and I am fine - tho obviously go if it would put your mind at rest. It's lovely having the free NHS for such things!
