My friend just had a baby and said that the stomach cramps are a lot worse after your second baby. Are you finding this too?



Yeah the main thing is you are both ok, it's all worth it in the end!

I've heard the same thing. I wonder how long it lasts. I barely cramped last time at all. Hopefully the raspberry leaf tea helps since it strengthens the uterus.

Oh god that's not a nice thing to look forward to!



I don't remember them being that bad after I had my son.

Same! I don't remember them being that bad after I had my son. I breastfed him and remember I used to get tummy cramps sometimes when I was feeding him cause I know it's supposed to make everything shrink back quicker!

I didn't have very bad cramps after our first but this time they were much more painful! She was born on Thursday morning and today is the first day I hardly notice them and my nipples don't kill the entire time she eats, just when she latches on initially.



I pumped a tiny bit for some relief last night and then she wanted to eat of course. I still had plenty for her tiny tummy though. I also forgot that what I eat she "eats" so after a very spicy lunch yesterday, poor punk in got sick after two feedings because it must have really hurt her tummy, I felt. SO bad!



I love all of the adorable pics you guys are posting, I need to do that ASAP! :)

Oh no! At least they have got better and didn't last too long! How often were u getting the cramps? Did you get them when you fed her? How often is she feeding?

I cramped each time she ate, some more painful than others but much worse than last time as I hardly remember having them. She eats every three hours like a champ.



How are you feeling??

Hang in there girls, your body is getting ready!! I was getting very frustrated this last week as I was having descent contractions for days with no labor. With our first I didn't even have Braxton hicks untill I was in active labor and they were the real thing so I was so confused. Enjoy sleep now as there will be babies will be in your arms soon!!!!!

If anyone breast feeding is looking for breast pads I'm trying the lily pads today and they are awesome!! Totally worth the $$!

I've heard that from a number of different women with their second or subsequent children.
