Baby Free Afterall
Guess the last post pushed my uterus to get it’s act together, cause I started spotting an hour later. Woke up to blood, 32 day cycle. My last 4 have been 28,28,29 so this one was late, who knows why. I had 32-33 day cycles regularly before I conceived Evangeline, so I just assumed the shorter cycle may have been as a result of loosing 20lbs, but I haven’t put more then 3-5lbs (being back to work has been bad for my mindless eating and sedentary-ness )back on so it shouldn’t have that much of an impact. I am going to go with my cycles just re-regulating themselves postpartum.
I also re-started my Vitex today, I had put it off because of nursing, afraid it would affect my milk supply but I had HORRIBLE PMS this month, acne, mood swings, tears, hatred, depression, so I said enough is enough, I need to help my hormones work things out. It should be fine since we are only nursing around 2x a day on work days and 4x a day on days off.
We were not ready to conceive at this point anyhow, actively preventing, however of course if it happened that way then I would be over the moon regardless. We have so much up in the air right now, it’s overwhelming. I mean we are good if we want to stay put, we own our own home, both have stable jobs and could try again anytime really BUT we want to relocate, 3 hours away to my family’s town and that is stressing me out. Cost of living is way less there (more house for your money), the economy and job market are nearly as good as here and all my family live there to help out with another baby so it’s a really smart move in the long term. I just don’t know were to begin, I need to find work there, I need childcare in order to work, I need to sell this house, purchase another house there, and to get approved for the financing I will need to have a good job lined up first…So I don’t know which to do first..If I find the job, then I will have to move perhaps before my house is sold, and Dave will have to take care of the house sale, in which case, who will take care of E? Were will we live? Ect..See where I am going?
Anyone done something like this before? Your sage advice would be mucho appreciated.
