Everything she said plus I'm a Gooddess worshipper, so it's a really sacred and empowering time for me. Women are at their most powerful during thier bloodtime.

Since then.......barely any cramps, fewer aches, less bleeding...........I just feel better over all during my cycle and pp time.

I love her because it celebrates my fertility. It celebrates my ability to birth. It celerates my ability to carry life within me. It celebrates the possiblity of new children joining our family. It celebrate my being a woman.....my femininity. :

I probably sound like a dork, but honestly....when you look at it different, it becomes an entirely different experience......much like birth!
What she said.. reframe your menses and the cramps become less, bleeding becomes less. When I was 13 my mom's friend taught me this and also showed me how to Reiki myself and send thoughts of pure love to my uterus for doing its job so well.. and I was darned amazed when my menses pains cut back to just the first day and the blood flow shortened from 8-10 days to 4-6 days!

I use cloth wipes instead of toiletpaper as well and a menstrual cup with cloth pad back up if needed (usually don't). I am happy to not bleed during pregnancy and postpartum though. I am hoping to go longer than 15 months pp this time (as long as I don't have silent ovulation too, lol) as we want a longer time between this baby and the next one (3-5 years instead of 2.5yrs).

Update on my lovely urine....
still not definiative results to a UTI. LAst specimen was contaminated and I had to do a clean catch. I swear they'll find nothing. Everything is going very well.

I had to comment on Yvonne- and the laps in aunt flow visits. I wish I could have your delay- despite the flow being a good thing...with my last 2 babies- I got it w/in 6 weeks postpartum. Now- I told dh that I can hand 13 months apart- but any closer and I might go batty!
Man- I'm gonna have 3 under 3!

I find the post-partum bleeding to be a bit annoying, honestly. I think mostly because I have more important things to worry about than changing depends underswear the first few days. I am hoping to stock up on some cloth for pp, all I have right now is 6-8 wemoon cloth pads and while they are wonderful for monthly flow they won't hold lochia.

So, with that in mind, what mama cloth does everyone use post partum?

Oh, I got my menses back at 9 months with dd, though it will probably be sooner this time since I'll be pumping part-time so I can work

YaY! Baby flipped back to head down finally! She's hiccoughing right now down there and kicking the crap outta my right ribs. I hope she stays this way.

Sorry AJ that your menses resume so fast, seems to happen to most mamas I know.

I use Poppilini and Imse Vimse cloth pads, if I have to (tore last time,s o I had to). I hope I don't tear this time so I can use my cup. Using disposables just scares me after birth, heh. I found them way too unbreathable (despite any advertising) back in the day before I learned of cloth and cup.

PP bleeding doesn't last very long for me.. only the first day or two is hard flow.. then it is like a very light menses for the rest of the week and maybe another week. But then again, I don't leave the bed for any reason other than shower and other bathroom needs during the first two weeks.

I haven't read it but think it's a great book. I use FAM online.. someday I will get and read that book ...

Yeah, but at least now I can wipe myself again from the front. The one good thing about breech position is that baby cannot hit those nerves that shoot down the inside thighs that make you drop to the floor. I guess the butt cheeks are padded enough, hee hee. Contractions/squeezes feel different with head down vs breech too, that was interesting to notice.

Think I will take a nice candle-lit bath and then try to nap before bed...if I can convince DH to take DS out to play (despite it being so dark...)
