No af here. With ds, it was when he was 20 months, so I'm not figuring on getting mine any time soon. Especially with my PCOS seeming to be worse this time (sugar cravings, lack of weight loss after the initial drop after birth, etc.).

Oh, and congrats to southernmommie as well -- didn't see that before. One year apart is hard at first, but I've heard it gets easier later (easier is a word that doesn't apply all that well for many -- my seven year old is still not really easy, but he's definitely easier in some ways than when he was a baby).

We rented the indoor playground at our local recreation centre. It's 3600 square feet of pure awesomeness, built for children crawling age to six, there's a large area with tables and chairs for eating and visiting and grownups. I'm very excited.

Wow! I had no idea so many of our Oct09 mamas were expecting again! Congrats, ladies! (and good luck, too! I don't think I could do it.)

My boy is one today! I've been thinking a lot about his birth and how this past year has been such a blur, and it makes me sad. I should be happy, but I'm kinda... not. They grow up too fast.

Oooo exciting! Actually this just happened to a friend of mine, and she'd been trying for 3 years to conceive her daughter before ... she only had one period in between pregnancies! Jealous!

I have to say I am feeling very little urge to add anymore babies to our family at this point. I can barely keep up with the ones I have! How is everyone else feeling?

Sorries.

I have read that getting AF back makes it easier to lose weight. I think not having AF might be why these last few LBs are being so stubborn! Seems like after I got AF with my other kids my weight dropped rapidly. Here's hoping!

Also, it would be nice to get my sex drive back.

But, I'm not looking forward to the mess, inconvenience, mood swings, or pre-AF breakouts. I did buy some mama pads off Etsy, I'm thinking of getting a diva cup to use as well, so I'm kind of excited to try those out. I read up on the dangers of tampons a while back so I'd like to get away from those.

UGH> my skin has been atrocious the last couple weeks and it never occurred to me that it could be related to AF. I just wish I had bought a Diva Cup beforehand. I'm stuck with tampons this cycle, which is inconvenient and yucky ( I did a lot of reading over the past couple years about disposable menstrual products). I'll pick one up before the next round.


For those mamas who have their PPAF, are your cycles regular? Should I expect her again in 22 days? Or will it be hit and miss from still BFing?

Yup. Total denial.
Never mind that my boy is not toddling... he's RUNNING all over the place. He's not one yet... still an infant!
Denial aside, I look at his little face and I see the boy he's becoming, not that tiny little baby any more. It goes so fast! I want to get pregnant again soon -- I want it all over again!

Total denial. Is that so wrong? LOL.

Well, the bittersweet news is that I'm not pregnant and that I did get my dear sweet AF back (blech). I would have been excited for a #3....but I'm also excited to move on into the next stage of my girls lives. It's all good. I got a new paragard. Glad to not be feeling like a teenager trying to manipulate those silly condoms, hee hee.
Big birthday party next weekend!! Can't believe how fast a year can fly. (Such a true cliché)
K, will meet you all over in the new toddlers thread. Thank you for starting it and keeping us all directed!

Happy birthday everyone!

: totally in love , vegan & mountain dwelling mama to my girls ❤ 5.2003 & 10.2009 ❤
