JMJ and Mt_Gooseberry-
thankfully it was only the first 2 days this cycle that were oddly heavy. last cycle, the first after birth, it was incredibly heavy and I did get a bit worried as it was 4 days and way more blood than I expected. I've never been anemic since getting my diet in order, and never eat processed foods or junk. so all my foods are traditional/nutrient dense items, i don't normally drink caffeine (though I have a bit lately due to mood swings), and no sugar. but it was also one of my longest cycles at 63 days. which I have done before since documenting (not charting), and it's almost like i have 2 periods every 2 months instead of 1 a month. Very excited to start charting and not worrying about temps as i am not sleeping. ah, teething. c'mon top teeth!
and also glad that you're here so that I kept somewhat charting for the last 2 cycles, so i'm in the rhythm of paying attention.
when i look back, i realize i've never had normal cycles of any ilk, and hopefully will get Marilyn Shannon's book soon b/c i think that would be a very nice shift in my life.
And thanks for helping out, Physics girl.
