Stop reading now if you are squeamish or talk of mentruation makes you woozy (That’s you love) This post is going to be an overshare of note.
I really miss my pre-baby periods. It was occasionally a day of intermittent and very mild cramping followed by 5 days of low to medium bleeding then back to normal life for weeks. Now…man have things changed.
I have never kept track of my cycle. Not even when I was trying to fall pregnant. Ok I lie, I did for about two months with baby no2 but then I fell pregnant and that was that. Now I don’t need a calendar. Three or four days before I’m due I start getting…weepy/ angry/ irritable/ snappy (basically all the negative emotions). I know what’s happening because EVERYTHING makes me cry.
The cats don’t have enough water. Oh man, they must be soooooooo thirsty. Poor kitties. Why didn’t I check their bowl? I’m a terrible parent. Cry cry cry
A gave me a hug. She must miss me. Maybe I’m not giving her enough attention. She’s such a good kid I should spend more time with her. I’m a terrible parent. Cry cry cry.
Oh man, J wanted to hang out after the girls went to sleep but it’s so late now and I’m exhausted. E is going to wake up a few times tonight again and I’m so frikken tired. But I havnt spent any quality time with him in a while. I’m a terrible wife. Cry cry cry.
Notice a pattern?
Well once that shitstorm reaches its peak it means it’s period time. I honestly worry sometimes whether I’m bleeding to death and don’t realise it. I’m talking Red Wedding type bleeding. It’s intense.
I can’t be the only one who’s body tries to murder her every 5 weeks am I?
