Hello Darkness My Old Friend

my period is coming.  Sigh.  It was nice while it lasted and this explains the monster zits that have taken over my face.

I am scared – I had horrific periods, lots and lots of cramps and puking – any tips on what to expect postpartum???

I just got my first after the twins and it lasted all of 3 days with very lite flow. No idea why. Then my next came the next month on schedule and it was pretty bad. I too have HORRIBLE cramping but none so far this time. Be warned that the flow is so much more after having a baby. My sister told me what to expect so I wasn’t surprised. It’s one thing having to deal with it but with 2 babies and the not knowing when you ‘ll get a shower isn’t too fun to say the least. Maybe this will just be a light one… 🙂 Hugs!

I haven’t had one yet, but if they’re heavier than before, I’m screwed!

You could get a mirena IUD. The progestin thins your lining and makes periods much lighter.

🙂 i still have not had one. the kids are one. i got the iud. seems totally silly considering i had to work my ass off to get pregnant the first time, but who cares. i have palpitations worrying about “the return”. lol.

first cycle was very mild, very little cramping however ovulation is so much mroe painful. when I was TTC I would measure my tempearture, evalyate my CM etc. etc. etc. … now there is NO way I could not notice when I am ovulating

I used to have wonderfully light periods. After having EJ, it’s super heavy. Who knows how it will be after having these babies??

Mine have not been good I’m afraid, heavier than before and very painful even for a few days before. But everyones different….. Hopefully yours will be ok!

I have to say my periods after having Bean were just the same as they were before, unfortunately! (I have endo, so OUCH!) I hope you are one of the lucky ones whose AF is easier. 🙂
