Happy Valentine's Day to ME

Well, tonight is not going to be the Valentine's Day night that I had planned.

You could have knocked me over with a feather this morning when I saw that after a year and 2 weeks of postpartum bliss, my period came back. I believe my exact words were, "What the hell is that?"

Although I doubted that she would be returning on her own I shouldn't be so surprised. All the signs were there, but I've had those signs a lot since giving birth and if I had a nickel for every time I thought I was going to get my period by now I could get oatmeal cream pie from a vending machine.

There was some nostalgia for the TTC days as I dug under the sink to retrieve my feminine protection. But we definitely do not plan on TTCing again for awhile... like a year at least. But I am glad that she came back on her own because I will be due for my yearly soon and I really didn't want to have to get a prescription to induce a period.

Any guesses to how long my cycle will be? I've always had a long luteal phase, so maybe 30 days... or maybe 6 months. Whatever at this point.

It goes like this... said...

omg-YES. I got mine too, albeit not on valentines day, last month. After 15 months... there it was. Mine lasted 5 days and I was happy about that.

Hope it leaves as 'swift' as it came!

Ah, what timing AF has! I hope your cycles come back regularly. I'm still waiting for PPP#2, three months after the first. Good luck!

Seriously bad timing! That sucks. That's good though that it came back on it's own. I always hate having to get it induced.

No fun :(! I'm not looking forward to it either. Except, sometimes I'm actually happy when she arrives for the same reason you mentioned. Still, I hope you have a special day with your little valentine :).

Rock on. I had the Big D and my husband was walking around the house amazed at how I smelled it up. Sexxxy.

I try to tell myself that AF has a sense of humor...of course it isn't the same kind as my humor.

At least she showed on her own :-)

I've been wondering when mine will come. I think at 2 pumps a day now, she'll have to show up sometime. Or maybe when I finally wean completely, she'll finally show up on the day I plan to lose my virginity for the second time...
Hope M takes to drinking milk from a sippy or cup soon. K will now not make as bad a face, especially if I let her lick a bit from a cup I've just had a drink of milk from. Maybe there's hope. I just dread the thought of mixing BM and milk, because I'm sure there'll be a lot of wasted milk before she's switched over. Your plan is sounding good.
