Does this sound like pregnancy or period?

I know I just need to take a test but it's Sunday night and all the shops are closed.

Not actively TTC but not using contraception so definitely could be possible. I'm still breastfeeding DS1 (11 months) and have had about 3 periods since he turned 5 months, the last one about 2 months ago (I think). I've been having a lot of period type feelings for a couple of weeks now and just feel very aware of my womb for want of a better description. Sometimes I'm sure I can feel flutterings but it's probably just gas. I don't feel pregnant (not sick, no sore boobs etc) but I am exhausted from 2 hour wakings anyway and also I wonder how differently your body reacts a second time? Has anyone got experience of erratic periods while breast feeding? Is it normal to have these pains and feelings but not actually get your period?

You could well be.
Breastfeeding doesn't stop you conceiving, especially given you have had some periods.

And every pregnancy is different....

But basically, get a test. And really, all the shops shut? Our coop is open and has tests
