I wasn't sure if this was the right place to ask this, but since this seems to be where all the TMI discussions take place I thougth I'd start here. :LOL :LOL :LOL
FINALLY got my period after having DS last January - he turns 18 mo. this week. I'm still nursing. (Not at all complaining about no period for 2+ years!
But it was weird. My period used to be light the first day (brownish), then heavy for 3-4 days (red) then light for a day (brownish) then gone. Pretty straight forward.
I noticed about 2 weeks ago that I had excessive mucus, figured maybe I was finally ovulating. Sure enough, my period started on Wed. But it went from nothing to THE FLOOD GATES ARE OPEN! I could barely keep up and had to get larger tampons and pads, (which barely help). Then, it went away overnight it seemed, but this morning - of all mornings - I had a sudden gush of fluid, and it was clear-ish.
This is totally TMI but it was really odd. I put a tampon in about 7am, (which would usually last a few hours at least). As I was sitting in a meeting at 10am, I felt this warm gushing. Well, people kept coming and going and I kept having to stand up, shake hands and sit down, and I kept feeling a warm gush and my pants felt wet. (Okay, of ALL days this could have happened, it HAD to be the day I'm in a really important meeting, with 17 new people I'm meeting at my new job wearing a PALE GREEN SUIT!!!)
Finally, fearing the worst (and after feeling it drip down my leg) I draw the line and excuse myself to go to the bathroom. Much to my horror my pants are soaked right through. Now the weird thing is, that it was SOAKED, but it was a clear-ish red. But it was REALLY wet. If I'd been pregnant, I would have thought my water broke, it was that wet. The tampon was still in, but it was like this clear fluid - whatever it was - had passed by the tampon and gushed all over (with just some red in it, it wasn't like totally just period if YKWIM).
Another weird thing is that Super Tampons won't seem to stay in! Has anyone had this before after giving birth? They slip down and are really uncomfortable. I want to find out more about those cup things, but fear being stuck without somewhere to wash it in private.
Does all this sound normal to all you experienced mamma's?????
