breastfeeding and pregnancy
An_253680 posted:
I am 8mo post partum working full time and my daughter is still breastfeeding. I had my first post partum period the end of july and have had no sign of one yet. I took a pee test 2 weeks ago soley because i am "late" and it was negative. I now that post partum cycling can be irregular due to breast feeding. but the past week I have been nauseous, heartburn, randomly waking at night, all things i did while pregnant with first child. I did take another test today and it was negative as well, but i feel pregnant. 3 days ago, it felt like things were moving around inside my abdomen.....

If you've taken two pregnancy tests that are negative, you probably aren't pregnant. Your symptoms could be hormonal.

While it could be normal you could also be pregnant. Breastfeeding while some providers say is a form of birth control, as soon as you start getting your period you are considered fertile again. When was the last time you had unprotected sex? You could still be testing to early or it may just be that your body is being all hormonal because thats what bodies do sometimes. If you still don't have af say next week, it wouldn't hurt to test again. It could be due to bf it could be due to pregnancy.
