Flipping The Flip Out

Um, this whole post is too much information. I will probably take it down within twenty four hours, so if you have a comment, please make it now or forever hold your peace.
I thought I was getting my period back all last week. Crampy, exhausted, cranky, bloated, but no bleeding. Yesterday I spotted for a few hours. Thought, "Hooray! The cycle is returning." And now? Now nothing. Nada. I think back a little to that one oops time when we didn't use protection. It was eight days ago.
Holy. Crap.
Implantation bleeding, no?

*Edited to add: Took a pt test this afternoon, which was negative. Whew. HowEVER- it would probably be too early to tell yet even if I WERE pregnant, right? (Which I am NOT.) Eight days past (hypothetical) ovulation = too early to test. But I couldn't HELP it!

It's an epidemic!

Lisa said...

Oh My! I hope the cycle returns for you SOON.

Jess said...

Eee! I remember when Devan posted the same type of thing, and we all know what happened to her. But that DOES NOT mean the same thing will happen to you. Keep us posted!

Mommy Daisy said...

Woah boy. I had that happen a few times in the past year, but it never was anything. Then I would get my period a week later after I'd already freaked out. I'm sure you'll keep us posted. :D

1. something's in the water!
2. yay! babies!
3. No! shut up! don't make her feel bad!
4. nnnnghh!
5. well let's just wait and see
6. that's not very supportive
7. hopefully things turn out the way you want for you :)

You're still breastfeeding, right? If you are, it could just be wonky from that (at least for me, my periods were weird for a long time until I totally weaned Zoe.)

Other possible explanations: star alignment, post Golden Globe let-down, universe effing with your head, etc.

Keep us posted!

You are still breastfeeding almost exclusively so not very likely that you're pregnant. . . If you're going to stick with your "resolution", you can't have those "whoops" times!

Jana said...

Oh my goodness. Between you and someone else who just went through something similar, I'm not going to have any fingernails left!

It is an epidemic, isn't it??? Holy crap, Batman, hold on to your utility belt. I hope it's just a weird moon interfering with your womanliness or something like that.

Dear Mom: If you want to keep your identity anonymous, you can't make lecturing mom comments! They give you away!

Oh my. Oh my.

Hope it goes whichever way you want it to...

I wasn't really trying to be "anonymous", just forgot my password! I haven't visited here forever - just stopped by to see if there was mention of our "pie" night.

Ok, the Dear Mom comment had me cracking up. lol

And, I hate to be a downer, but someone I know (oh wait, no- it was me!) was ebf and got pregnant.
*ahem*
However!!! It could just be wonky breastfeeding cycling. Hang in there. (And take a test next week, and one the week after, jic.)

I have been doing this for the past eight months! Freaking out every other week or so... I definitely feel your pain.
Keep us informed!!

Erica said...

Dude, your mom totally lectured you on YOUR OWN BLOG! That's awesome.

I'm sure it doesn't help you at all to hear that I'm a teeny bit jealous if you are. But then, Eli is younger than Luke and I might be freaking in your shoes too.
But I'm sure it will all be fine, and turn out exactly the way you want!!

WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT.

May I recommend this online pregnancy test place? I'm buying in BULK during these weird-cycle breastfeeding days.

If you ARE, I will be so happy and excited! I won't be able to help it!
