    Apparently some poeple do get a period whilst breast feeding. I thought I had had mine at 6 weeks but I think it was just a continuation of the lochia as I have had nothing since. Sorry I can't be more specific x

    It's normal for bf mums to get the af symptoms without actually having bleeding. I've had it twice since the lochia finished and have been suffering the past few days (have also been a right mardy cow so must be pmt!)

    Hi all

    Well still no Af yay well must not get too excited yet.. i never knew you couold get pains and such with no actual Af thats odd.
    Maybe thats why im so tired and miserable lol hmmmm.
    i was just saying the other day when i was moody that i cant use my ASf as an excuse lol.
    Well hopefully we will see what happens the next few days

    Hiya Katrina

    Congratulations!

    It may be worth me mentioning mind, that after a miscarriage, I was still getting faint positive pregnancy tests up to 6 weeks after I lost the baby. I wonder if you may still have some HCG still present from your pregnancy? Apparently you can still have HCG present up to 8 wks after giving birth.
