Oh, the Horror

(OK. Just one more post about my recent reunion with Aunt Flo and then I’m done with this topic.)

So, I’m going about my day at home, debating between engaging Little Guy in a stimulating mommy and me game of patty-cake or depositing him in the Exersaucer so I can do my nails, when all of a sudden... I feel a menstrual cramp coming on.

Only it's not the dull achy kind of cramp that I remember from my pre-pregnancy days. It feels like


a contraction.

You know. Like the kind of contraction you have during active labor that makes you plead with someone, anyone to knock you out with a two-by-four?

I doubled over and instinctively began hee hee who whooing to breathe through the pain. Instantly, my mind went into survival mode. I needed medication. An epidural? No, that's not it. Midol! I needed Midol! But I hadn't had Midol in the house for over a year.

And just as the horror of that thought began to sink in...the cramp was gone. Just like that. Man. One lone cramp. It only lasted for 30 seconds, but it was enough to remind me of two things.

1) I am truly a wimp when it comes to this stuff; and

2) I really need to get back on the pill ASAP.

Ugh! I'm so sorry! That first one is a beeotch! Be careful. If you are cavalier like I was, you will end up pregnant next month and have a newborn and a toddler.

Good times.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! I have done the obligatory blog list adding and now I must chat you up.

Oh, and add the word verification on your comments. That way cuts down on the porno spam!

Big hugs to you! I remember that first one well, and I was suck on the sofa for 2 days.

It was ALMOST enough for me to start taking the pain meds I had left over from my c-section. Perocet never looked so good.

Take care and send out the hubby for some midol!

Ugh. I remember my first period after the twins were born. It was awful. I had forgotten about the back pain and the swelling and the overall discomfort. Yuck. Sorry.
