Eight Days to Go

If you are a man, you need not read any further. Go work on a car or something. This one's for the lay-lays.

I only have one thing to say today...P.M.S. Not the normal amount of PMS, but it seems I've skipped a period (and, no, I'm not pregnant... I know for a FACT), so I've been feeling this way for a month or more. When will it end?! Can I PLEASE just get my period already?!!

It should come as no surprise to me that I'm irregular. One time, in college, I went eleven months without a period (that was a bit of a shocker... worrisome to say the least). But now that I'm older and I've had a couple of babies, you'd think I'd be all done with that. This isn't the first time this has happened since having kids either, but this time is particularly frustrating because I feel my body reacting to food (ingesting large amounts of sugar) and water (retaining some days, the opposite of retaining on others) as if I were getting my period.

Finally, my mother went through "menopause" at age 35. I put it in quotations, because since then, I've learned from my OB-GYN that she must have had what is called ovarian failure, because women don't EVER go through menopause at that age. At any rate, I was always worried that I wouldn't be able to have kids if I waited too long because of that issue, but much to Drew's dismay, we got pregnant on the first try (or earlier!), so clearly I didn't experience any failure in that department.

If I don't get my period soon, I really will bite someone's head off. Aaaargh!!!!


  1. Aw, hon! Wish I could help you in that department. Maybe make an appointment with the OB/GYN and have some tests run, make sure it isn't ovarian failure or whatever or if it is menopause, then you would know. I know for a fact that you can get an injection of hormones to start your period. Been there. Done that.

    Hope you feel better soon. :)

  2. I think the desire to bite someone's head off is a clear sign that your period is imminent.
