Dear AF: GFY

Well you know how they say your first period after a miscarriage might be heavier than usual? I thought I sorta bypassed that by having my first period after I'd already been bleeding for 4 weeks. And I figured this is technically my 2nd period since the m/c so it shouldn't be too bad...

Boy oh boy was I wrong! I'm going through pads like they're going out of style. Unfortunately, I'm also going through PANTS like they are going out of style. Seriously. I've never destroyed a pair of pants like I did today. I had to leave work and go to T.J M.axx to replace them because I'm too far from home to go change. And do you think I could be wearing something that goes with black? Of course not! I had to get brown pants. And don't think they're some nice, dark chocolate brown pants. Nope! They're light walnut-colored pants because T.J M.axx only had about 3 different pairs of brown women's pants. So I will be running to the bathroom every 30-45 minutes to make sure I haven't destroyed this pair too.

I almost wish my cramps would get worse so I'd have an excuse to just go home!

You should have left and went home!!!!!!!!!!!

I bled heavily my first period after D&C. Bled right through everything an onto the bed...needless to say I took it easy that day.

Kate said...

I think I'd have wanted to go home too... although, sometimes work is a good distraction from how shitty AF is. Ugh.

Oh, so sorry! ((Hugs)) I hate when I find a "mess" and have to clean it all up.

When you're feeling better, there'll be an award waiting for you at my blog (tomorrow morning, that is).

BTW, my comment moderation word verification letters spell "pregl". Is that some kind of sick joke, blogger?
