TMI Warning: Period

This time (June) 2 years ago I had my last period, 2 weeks later Ari was conceived....and the rest, as they say, is history.

Two years is a long time to go without, I am very grateful that Ari and I have a fabulous breastfeeding relationship that has helped keep my hormone levels up and my period away.

I woke up this morning and quickly realised that my dream run was over *sigh*.......not to sure how I feel about being "fertile" again, especially considering we do not, under any circumstances, plan to get pregnant again. Plus add to that I feel drained and my back is aching and I have 4 kids to look after....*big sigh*..

The one positive to come out of the return is that I got to use my Lunette Menstral Cup for the first time, and it went really well. I found it much easier to use then I imagined and although I felt a little uncoordinated I know that will get better with practice. I didn't even have to trim anything.

So anyway, now you probably know more about me than you wanted.

XOXO hayley

wow - 2 years is a dream run, i think i got a year after jet was born, so i guess thats nearly 2 years.

glad you liked your lunette, it took me a little while to get used to mine but i absolutly love it!!! couldnt go back to using anything else - was a bit grumpy that i couldnt use it after bae's birth, those maternity pads are like surf boards!!!! (there you go, now you know to much about me too :)
