End of an era.

I got my long unmissed monthly visitor today…Boo.
Evangeline starts sleeping better and I get my period in exchange. Ah well, it had to happen eventually, at least I am getting some sleep.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. 8 months isn’t a bad run! I’ve had patchy cervical mucus for a few months now, but no Aunt Flo. I’m actually kinda looking forward to it… James and I are looking to add as soon as we can.

    • Awww I would love to start trying again, especially with turning 34 this month, but I have to go back to work at least 6 months before trying again, so likely start next summer ( I would say next spring but both my babies were conceived in the spring and I want to change things up a bit with already one December and one January baby under my belt). I have to do this for three reasons 1-Have enough hours for another full year of unemployment to stay home with babe and have income, 2-Work was nice enough to hold my job for the full year I was off and is really looking forward to my return, I respect them enough to wait a while before leaving them yet again and 3-We want to put our house on the market as soon as new baby is born so we can sell during my year off and move 3 hours away, closer to my family.

  3. Aww… what a bummer. I’m not looking forward to mine coming back. Seems to me Becca was about this age when it came back that time, too. =/

  5. Ugh…it was fun while it lasted, eh?

  7. That’s the exact reason it came back… if she’s sleeping longer, she’s not nursing as often. If she’s not nursing as often overnight, then the hormone used to suppress ovulation isn’t being released and therefore, Aunt Flo returns. Can I suggest cloth pads (I make ’em, lol)

    I went 17 months postpartum before AF came back after DD#1… I’m 9m with DD#2 and it’s already threatening to come back…!!

    • I knew it was a risk when I moved her to her bed and went from six nursings a night to two or three, then to just two or one between 9pm and 7am. I also knew it was threatning to return cause I started breaking out a month ago after months of perfect skin, I also noticed my hair falling out like crazy for the first time post partum and lastly I noticed a change in my cervical mucus in terms of fertility signs about 3 weeks ago so I was awaiting this day. Still boo especially since I don’t want to conceive for another many months.

    • I actually hate pad’s, I use the Diva cup if I have to, otherwise if it’s a light flow I just wear black underwear and they work fine. If I did use pads though I would consider cloth, can I wash em with my cloth diapes? My husband would not appreciate bloody pads in the sink or in with our laundry haha.
