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.
