Come Obsess With Me! Part Three

Hi! Yes, we ARE still talking about this. You have apparently found your way to the all TMI all the time station.
Now I'm spotting again. I feel crazed and hormonal and have, as Catherine Newman says it, "hurt my own feelings" several times today over comments Jim made which were in fact completely benign. I also took a test with first-morning urine and it was negative. So based on these facts, I'm thinking period. I know it would still be really early for a test to come out positive even if I were pregnant, but I'm going to relax about and just assume this is the cycle grinding reluctantly back into gear.
That said. I am not enjoying the mood swings and the bleak winter scene outside my window, nor the fact that my knees, after just two aerobics classes, are creaky and cracky and threatening to slide out of place all the time. Am I fifty years old, here, body? You can't handle a high/low aerobics class without starting to go all arthritic on me? Soon I'm going to be able to feel it in my bones when a hard rain is coming.

I'm glad you're feeling a bit more relaxed about the whole thing. And cut your body a little slack, here! Maybe try mixing up the types of workout you do so that one body part doesn't have to take the brunt every time?

Phew! Yes, that def sounds like a body getting ready to cycle again.

I am a BOTTOMLESS PIT for this kind of talk. BRING! IT! ON!

I love that Catherine Newman expression about hurting your own feelings.

I would be CRAPPING my pants if I were you. I mean, if I were thinking I was pregnant right now (or any time in the past 15 months since my youngest was born).

CRAPPING.

So, um, I hear you.

And I do not tire of this type of discussion. Bring on the female bodily functions! Let's dish. =)

UMMM, I didn't mean "if I were you" as in, if I were actually YOU, as in YOU couldn't handle it or something... I just meant I would freak out. Not that you should, or that I think it would be bad if YOU were pregnant. Quite the opposite- I'd be SO! EXCITED! for you.

Am I making any sense yet?

No?

I'm going to bed...

Well, I hope that you can tell soon. Is this an earlier start to your period than it was after having Addie? Is that why you're worried too?

MD- Actually, no, with Addy I started three months after having her, and I bled for like TEN WEEKS after birth, so I basically had no break in periods. But I wasn't exclusively breastfeeding her, either, whereas I am with Eli, so I was EXPECTING at least six months without the old monthly visit. That's about normal, right?

I'm with you on feeling like things are grinding, creaking, clacking, threatening...
