****warning, this post is about a woman’s period, so if you are a man and can’t handle that, check out another post***
Around when the twins turned 2 months old I surprisingly got my period. It was definitely an unexpected and unwanted event as I was still breastfeeding the babies and had never gotten my period while I was still breastfeeding either of our other kids. Seriously? If I still have to be getting up in the middle of the night just to pump milk for the babies shouldn’t I be able to get a break from the red mayhem? But, it was what it was and I figured, “this sucks, but okay”.
And then two months later….I’m late. And not a day or two late, but an entire week. But wait, I had my tubes “tied” when the twins were 7 weeks old, so this should NOT be happening! I give it one more day before I call my OB and luckily my Aunt Flo decided to show up. I chalked it up to still having crazy hormones and moved on.
The period train arrived right on schedule the next month so I figured I was back on track. But then I started getting bloated, and my breasts started getting sore (no longer breastfeeding), and then my mind started playing “what if?” games with me. I mean, come on! I went back after the twins were born and had another surgery so I no longer had to take birth control and freak out about this. When, and why have I become the woman who is stressing, trying remember when exactly her last period came?
During a long car ride this past weekend I looked at TJ and said, “what would you do if I were pregnant?”. He looked at me dumbfounded, and then gave an exacerbated look and shrugged his shoulders. Oh crap. How would we do it? The twins would be just a bit over 1…mobile twins with a newborn? No thanks! And what if it’s not just one baby? I have proven that I can pop out more than one. We would need to get a different van…a big, ugly van (not that I love having to have a mini van in itself). How in the world would we afford to have another child?
But, I do love being pregnant. And I love our children. I have an amazing husband and I know that we can handle anything that is thrown at us. So, I let the stress go thinking ”what will be will be”. And then I let another stress go as we scheduled to have my mother-in-law meet me halfway to take the two older kids for a couple of days. Just TJ and me….and the twins. Gosh, when they are napping it will be like we are home alone! Add that thought to the racy thoughts I’ve been having thanks to 50 Shades of Grey, and I’m extremely excited to spend some quality time with my hubby.
Right before I head out the door with the kids I go to the bathroom. Yep. My period! So now it is just TJ and me…..and the twins…..and Uncle TOM. Perfect timing! Clearly someone is enjoying a good laugh at me right now!
