Postpartum query - period pains at almost 7wks PP (EBF)?

Realise this is pregnancy, but wanted the greater traffic smile

DS is 7wks tomorrow. He's EBF and feeds at least every two hours, day and night [yawn]

For the last few days I've been having stomach cramps (like a period) and today I've developed that horrid period backache. My lochia stopped at 3wks and hasn't come back.

With my older child I had to totally wean to get my cycles back (ie not be producing a single drop of milk): surely I can't be getting them back so soon with this baby? If not, are these just extended afterpains??

Any advice?

Hmm, difficult to say - I guess you'll only know for sure if it's a period if a period arrives.

Perhaps it's worth visiting the GP to rule out stuff like endometritis or a urinary infection?

Hope you feel better soon.
