My last MP was in December of 2011. I had my Son on September 4th of this year. The last few mornings I've been waking up feeling sick to my stomach. Last night when I went to bed I was having terrible SHARP pains in my lower left side, and this morning my entire lower stomach is cramping...BAD. I get these random sharp "stab" pains in my back. My hips and legs are hurting and I've been feeling pretty over emotional the last few days. Does this sound like I might be about to get my MP? Is it common for it to be this bad the first period after you have a child? My MP always sucks, but never this bad. I'm just hoping that's what it is, and that I don't have anything else going on.
If by MP you mean your period then yeah, it's normal. I remember my doctor told me from your hormone drop that your upcoming periods and ovulation are going to be more painful then usual.
I'm 18 months PP and I still get some sharp stabbing pains in my side when I ovulate, but the pain is far less then what it used to be.
If the pain is too much to handle I would talk to you OB. Mine recommended birth control with hormones to help with the chemical side of it and it would lessen the pain.
