Cycle Day Ouch!!

It is yet again CD1. Wow, getting a regular period is so stinking cool. (Weird, I know.)

I had a 31 day cycle. Very cool. Not at all as long as I thought it was going to be considering I o-ed on cd21. (Weird again, I know.) But I'll take it!

Now on the the dilemma, because of course there has to be one. I AM IN PAIN! Horrible period pains today. I'm starting to remember why I went on the pill in the first place. It's full force cramps, low back pain and fatigue. By the time hubs got home from work today I crashed. I couldn't even give B his bath which is one of my favorite times during the day.

Thank goodness for ibuprofen. 800mg each dose got me through.

I hate that I'm even being tempted to go back on the pill yet again. I don't think I will. If it's only one day a month of PMS I can handle it. But if it is like this for 3 or 4 days a month. Uhg...I don't know.

At least right now I have an excuse for all these Rolo's I just took to the face.

I ovulate in the early 20s of my cycle...sometimes day 19. I wonder if it is a PCOS thing? And my cramps are terrible as well. Prescription strength Naproxen for me baby! Glad you had a basically normal cycle :)

Stephanie said...

Yay for the normal cycle! Sorry about the pesky period pains.

Wow... a 31 day cycle is awesome!!! Heating pads also work wonders :-)

Thanks for your comments ladies! I will try that heating pad, and might need to get my hands on Naproxen

OUCH I recall in high school I would throw up the first 2-3 days of my period, then suffer through cramps and lower back pain the other 3-4 days. I feel for ya.
