What a week......

Man, just when I thought I'd mostly come "back to normal" after giving birth the latest step slapped me in the face. Without being too upfront, I'll tell you what I mean. So, it takes a while for us mommies to get our regular cycle back, right? Understandable after what we put that region through for a good year, what with pregnancy and delivery and all. I thought I'd mostly made it back to a reliable schedule and since I'd stopped breastfeeding last month, I also got to switch to a regular birth control prescription (while breastfeeding, mommies have to take a special type of pill that's safe for baby, too). MAN! Let me just tell you...I've had 3 visits from Aunt Flo in the last 5 weeks! Seriously people, I think I need a blood transfusion or something.

I go through bouts of extreme weakness that just comes upon me with no warning. Though I'm trying to keep enough water in me, I guess I'm just not eating the right foods or something. I must need more iron! The silver lining? I haven't had to take any worry-induced pregnancy tests in the last 2 months (yes, I have taken them...I think I have a fear of getting pregnant again. I'd LOVE another little one, don't get me wrong, but there's no way we could afford one right now).

Well, battery is low on the laptop and I don't feel like pulling it in...I'll be back, people :).

Happy Easter, just in case I run out of time for more posts before then!
