Too Much Information

You may not care to know about this (for instance, Dad, you probably won't want to continue), but it's part of being a breastfeeding Mommy.

For the past month I had been feeling a tad off (beyond the cold that never goes away). I was even starting to have some cramping and last week I found it pretty painful to feed the little guy.

What is going on? If it is what I think it is, why doesn't it just come already?

So I dragged the two kids and myself to the OB-GYN last Thursday (just to add on to all the trips to the pediatrician) and had a pelvic exam (oh joy). They took some samples to send off to the lab and I was told it was probably nothing to worry about.

Fast forward two days. Guess what showed up? After a 20 month hiatus, it's back. I suppose I should be happy I'm getting back to normal (whatever that is), but I am now stuck with this fact of life until menopause. Because if there's ever a reason for it to go on hiatus again, I won't be too happy about it!

It's just crazy that it has been a part of my life for only 6 months out of the past 3.5 years. I suppose I better get used to it now. And the fact that weaning the little guy is just around the corner.

Get a hormone spiral and say goodbye forever to what you think it is ;)

I'm right there with you lady! I got mine back the last couple months, too. I've loved nursing completely...until the last month. Hmmmmm. Katy
