so I asked in my PR some questions but didn't get any ideas here's what I wrote:

Do you find that your cramps have been worse pp? I've been cramping for the past 2 1/2 weeks and no sign of AF yet (she's shown twice though). And does anyone know if BF lowers your immune system? I woke up with a sore throat yet again and it was just a few weeks ago I had the flu.

so we aren't preventing a pg. do you think the cramping is my body gearing up for ovulation but because I'm nursing on demand it keeps postponing it? I have had 2 pp AF (one came 42 days after the other). we usually don't get pg until Oct. (we have 3 July babies) but I want to get an idea of what my cycle is doing.

First off... nursing wouldn't lower your immune system. if you are eating right you should be pretty normal. If no are not eating right, that in itself could make it lower.

As for cramping.... your body could be trying to ovulate. It may not be following through?? But usually my ovulation cramps are different than period like cramps though.

Sorry I am not much help.

How has your CM been? have you had fertile CM?

I was wondering about lowering my immune system because my body is working hard to bf (just like during pg a pg mama is more susceptible to illness).

I haven't noticed much cm at all, I just constantly feel wet if that makes any sense, except all of a sudden on day, DH and I were DTD and it hurt, I was completely dry and tight, which is not normal for me (the night before everything was just fine) but I guess might be normal during bf? who knows. anyway, I still have hot flashes and the cramping has subsided and now I just have pinches by my bellybutton and my ovaries, I guess my body is just on overdrive. last month AF was 42 days and I'm now 30 days. my pp periods are always abnormal yet so far I've always gotten pg in October

hmmmm if you were feeling wet, I would think maybe that you were ovulating??

Good luck!
