Hey ladies, I'm trying to take my mind off of my impending OB appt today (for those of you that haven't read my other thread, I'm having some bad reactions to a medication that's causing some bleeding and cramping) so I decided to post a thread that I've been thinking about for a while anyway. For those of you that have already had a baby, did you find that breastfeeding caused you contractions in the first week or so? I never had a problem with my first or second babies, but when I had DD I cried every time I breastfed her because it felt like I was in labor all over again. It really upset me because breastfeeding is supposed to be this beautiful bonding experience and I found myself dreading every time she was hungry. Thankfully it stopped after the first week or so, and I know I still have a ways to go before I really have to worry about it, but has this happened with any of you? Any reason why?
