    what CD are you ?
    it is so difficult to determine what is the norm post partum but hang in there keep tracking and you may be pleasantly suprized if not it may help to see what your body is doing so you have some idea for next month

    Thanks Tears of Joy
    I jsut read your other post to me!

    Maybe it is just AF and i am reading too much into it.
    I will try to hold off 2 weeks to test again. will drive me crazy especially if i still feel the way that i do

    Are you breastfeeding? It sounds like you are. If so then your chances of being pregnant are very reduced.

    Maybe baby measures peaks in estrogen so if your estrogen levels may not have gone back to normal yet so don't rely on that too much yet.

    I've seen lots of ladies get false positives with that brand of test so if you do think you are get another brand of test & test again.

    "Breastfeeding women who conceive a subsequent baby may notice they become incredibly tired and exhausted (more so than they already are!) and possibly notice an increased sensitivity to their nipples (particularly when their baby latches and suckles at the breasts). They may also feel nauseated or sick, due to morning sickness. The taste of breast milk often changes when a woman is pregnant again, usually being more 'salty'. This change can cause some babies to fuss at the breast when feeding, or they may temporarily (or permanently) refuse to breastfeed."
