I hate this period

Hate it hate it hate it! Click here to enlarge And I'm sorry, this post is going to be horrifically disgusting.

So I spotted from Friday until yesterday, and apparently, they do not consider it CD1 until you have actual bleeding. So yesterday, I finally got some actual bleeding. Yay, CD1. About damn time.

This morning, I got out of bed and all of a sudden felt this huge gush of blood. It was just blood, no clots or anything, but there was so incredibly much of it. I'm wearing pads this cycle to kind of keep track of everything, and I'm used to wearing a keeper, so maybe I am overreacting, but it just seems like a lot of blood.

I understand that my body is doing weird things because of the m/c. And when I had my ultrasound on Saturday, he said my lining was very thick, but still, ugh.

Did anyone else have this? It seems like everyone else I talk to had a lighter period the first time after their m/c, and I'm sitting here wondering if, after two hours, I need to change my pad.

I'd call and run it by your doctor. After my m/c, my next period was pretty light, but I had a d/c too.

I never post in here but I had a m/c in March. My next 2 periods were unbelievably heavy. I would soak through overnight pads very quickly. The next 2 were much better, even lighter than normal. You're not alone!

Oh, Callie Click here to enlarge. That truly sucks. It sounds like your body is doing it's best to get things ready for next time.

Click here to enlarge with Noodle. After laying down for so long like that I always have a rush. If it stays really heavy all day, like soaking a pad every hour, then I'd call the dr.

Thanks, guys, it's a lot better now. It was insane yesterday, but it's slowed now, and I feel fine, so I'm guessing that everything is okay.

The next hurdle is Clomid, starting Saturday. And as you can tell, I am just so mentally stable right now in the first place and not at all freaking out about every little thing. This should be a walk in the park. Click here to enlarge

Apologize in advance to your girlfriend for anything crazy or irrational you may do while taking Clomid. It doesn't do mood swings any favors. Click here to enlarge

Glad to hear it slowed down. My docs told me after mc'ing that soaking pads every few hours would be normal, but if it was still happening after day 2 to come in to get checked.

It's more the anxiety than bitchiness, though I did have a moment last night.

Anxiety and hot flashes.

One more day after this...
