Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
|ETA: Since someone mentioned it, no, my periods are never like this! I always get the same type of pain, but it's never been anywhere near this bad.|
savithny, 42 year old moderate mom to DS Primo (age 12) and DD Secunda (age 9).
I used to have really, really, awful periods.
In labor, I kept waiting for labor to get as painful as my period cramps.
When it finally did, my water broke and I was ready to push.
Many of the coping techniques I developed over the years to deal with cramps were VERY useful in dealing with labor.
I had a period like that once before. A few years ago I woke up in the middle of the night CRYING from period pain. Sometimes I get faint cramps, but RARELY anything remotely painful and this was EXCRUCIATING. I somehow made it down to my bathroom (I lived in the attic) and ripped it apart looking for Aleve or Advil or ANYTHING. A hammer would have been handy. I rolled around in my bed in total misery and no position helped. I somehow managed to fall back asleep and all pain was gone by the time I woke up in the morning.
