Raising a Blended Family

The Weirdest Thing Happened Today

on August 21, 2013

Being a mama is amazing. Being a breastfeeding mama has certain perks. One of them is that generally, one gets a prolonged amount of time without a period after the birth of their baby.

For me, it was a very, very long time, that unfortunately ended today. Aunt Flo arrived! As I haven’t had a period since Dec. 18, 2011 (you try filling in a million “last menstrual period” questionairres during pregnancy and then see if that’s a date you ever forget!), it was distinctly odd to wake up this morning to those old, familiar cramps. The last time this happened, I ended up pregnant!

Not that I didn’t see it coming. Pax has been nursing less and less and my body has been producing less.  Plus, we were gone to Jamaica for a whole week. Granted, I pumped that whole time, but there was still a little drop in supply that I wondered if it would trigger this.

Lo and behold…. welcome back to womanhood.
