(Robin, I think Adam can skip this post!)
The other day while out with a friends, the topic of periods came up. As we rolled our strollers through the mall, it was quite shocking to find out how alike our "monthlys" had become since having children.
Right on schedule. Painful. Full.
(I told you men to beware!)
Before having Roo, I was on the pill for years. So obviously, I was like a clock but I never had any of the mind-numbing, painful symptoms that went with it. I was blissfully unaware of how bad it could be hiding behind my pill.
After insurance costs became too much and after weaning, my "monthly" came back with full force, complete with every uncomfortable PMS symptom men have made fun of for years.
I felt like I was back in middle school and embarrassed about the whole scenario. Now, my husband and I are very open with one another, but I was blushing just thinking about complaining to him.
Thankfully, my friends were right on par with me and understood every word that was coming out of my mouth.
It was like sweet relief!
I wasn't alone!
Now, tell me... I'm not alone, right?
