It's Baaaa-aaack!


This post will contain conversation pertaining to, shall we say, female issues. Read at your own risk.

Now that all the scaredy cats have left...let's get on with it. You've probably guessed what's back. Aunt Flo's come to visit. Mother Nature has brought me a gift. However you say it, my period is back.

Now I can't complain too much. I mean Tyler is almost 17 months old! That means over two years since I've had a menstrual cycle, almost. There were two periods brought on my the use of birth control a while back. That whole episode resulted in a pregnancy scare when I stopped taking the birth control because it also brought on yeast infections. I was still nursing frequently enough that once the hormones weren't forcing me to have a period...I didn't. We were so worried about #4, but alas, we were worried for nought.

So, anyway, aside from those few months I've been doing pretty good. It's always exciting when the nurse asks the first day of your last period and you can't remember. I also like just not having to deal with everything that goes along with "the curse." But, here I am...a woman...so I guess it's really OK that it's back.

In the end, I'll struggle through just like most everyone else. Oh, yeah, and Happy Mother's Day!
