It’s Back

Major TMI warning.

AF. Crimson Tide. Period. Time of the month. WTF is what I called out yesterday mid-morning.

I know I talked about AF’s unwanted arrival for 22 cycles. I thank God that time in my life is over. And after this post, I will hopefully not talk about my cycles again.

But I really thought {not sure why though} that while I continued to successfully breastfeed my duo, my period would stay away. No longer such luck.

I have been lucky enough to have been period-free since September 2011. So there’s that. I realized last night that this is my first unmedicated period since February 2011. Crazy, right?!

I’d honestly forgotten how it all worked, the PMS, bloating, zits, kinda moodiness & craving bread. Then of course the period itself & cramps. Good times being a girl are back y’all.

    I had the same issue, although mine came back 1 week after my PP bleeding stopped. So I had even shittier luck than you, if it makes you feel better!

    I completely understand. I was lucky enough to have mine come back the day before Christmas. (Ask my hubby how much fun I was on Christmas Day). My last one was Feb 2011 so right there with ya (in fact I gave you that medicine shortly after that!) I was a little surprised too. With Jax it came back 30 days after I stopped breastfeeding. Inara is still going string with no signs of self weaning.
