    Not sure where this fits in but has anyone had really bad stomach cramps? My little one is a week old today and ive been having alot of stomach pain. Ive heard it can happen after your second child? Xx

    Yes it's worse after your second - if you're breastfeeding it strengthens the contractions more!

    Yeah - didn't really notice these much at all with my first & they really bloody hurt with baby 2! I was breastfeeding as well and it literally felt like a contraction when she fed. Ouchie. I just took paracetamol & it eased off after a week or so x

    It was terrible after my second, like labour pains. It turned out I had a bit of retained placenta. It can be pretty normal to have them though.
