    Default C-section Recovery......

    Hi Ladies,

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if what im feeling is normal.....

    I had a c-section (my second one) 5 1/2 months ago, I combined breast feeding and formula from 1 week old till 4 months.
    I bleed for 13 weeks post c section and am now 24 weeks post and no period, for the past 6 weeks I have felt like its just about to come (cramping and back pain, and moody) but nothing has happened!
    I took a pregnancy test just to be sure and it was Negative and have no other signs that it could be that.
    I'm just worried that there is something wrong or is this normal???

    All my other periods came back within 2-4 weeks of the bleeding sopping even if i was breastfeeding....

    It's hard to say tbh, I've gotten my cycles back at different times post 3 births..if you're feeling like something is up than maybe request an ultrasound and some blood tests? Can't hurt

    Thanks, i might go do that. I think I more worried about there being an infection in my uterus from the c-section even though the scar looks normal its still very sore to touch that area.....
