A Slightly Neurotic Hobbit

Hey Humble Readers...

This post is definitely categorized in the realm of TMI.  I know that some of my readers don't really want to know the inner workings of my reproductive system, and I am now giving you the opportunity to skip this post.  Scroll down and read last night's musings, or come back tomorrow when there will be something more your speed.

Here's the deal.  AF still hasn't made a come back.  Instead, she's playing with my mind. 

I have had consistent mild menstrual cramps for several days (getting progressively worse).  I have been feeling mildly PMS-y and tired and headachey.  All of that makes me think that the witch should be making an appearance any time now. 

But here's the thing... I've started checking my CM again, just to get back in the habit, and it's all over the place.  One day I'll have EWCM and then the next day it will be creamy or dry, and then back to EWCM.  And it varies in amount too... one day there will be scads and then the next day hardly any.  But then, I've also had intermittent twinges that I have always associated with ovulation.  Talk about messed up!  I haven't started temping again yet, as I have been waiting for AF to get here.

I stopped breastfeeding last week, and I'm sure that's a part of it.  I'm still dealing with a bit of leaking and discomfort on one side. 

And just to be sure, I did take a hpt a few days ago and it came back negative.  I honestly wasn't expecting it to be positive, but I just wanted to get that thought out of my mind. 

Do any of you have any thoughts?  I feel like I'm way to hung up on this right now, but I can't escape the physical side of it all.  It's driving me nuts.


  1. Mrs.G, it appears we are in the same boat. I was SURE I o'ed a few nights ago, then I had cramping, and then for the last 3 days, bleeding (but only enough for one pad a day) I have no idea what is going on. I stopped breastfeeding this weekend as well, and had to start on some estrogen, so I'm sure thats not helping things..Let me know if you figure out what is going, lol.

  2. From memory I think it would take AF a bit more time to come back, so that's the only thing I can suggest, give it time! Sorry that is not the best advice I know :)

  3. It's probably because your hormones are all over the place because of stopping breastfeeding.

  4. I hate all those pseudo-somatic sensations :/ {hugs}

    And trust me, that wasn't even close to TMI in my world!


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
