Thanks Eve

I seriously think mother nature is trying to get back at me for all the periods that my body decided to never have. Ever since Sadie was born - when I get the monthly friend - the pain is excrutiating.

The first 12-36 hours of my period include cramping that is just as bad as, if not WORSE than labor. And just like labor, the pain originates in my back. And for those of you who know someone who's had back labor - you should just go out and buy them flowers or a gift card to their favorite store just because they went thru one of the most evil moments the body can put a woman through.

All I can do is curl up in a ball in bed and hope that Erik will do everything for the next day or two.

If I could go back on the pill, I would do it in a second. But I can't because of the stupid blood clots. AHHH!

Naproxin, dear. Though that's ibuprofen based, so you may have the same problem as with the pill, but it's fantastic for menstrual pain. As someone who suffers from PMDD, I can tell you that the physical symptoms often match the emotional/mental symptoms, and since it's hormonally related, I can only assume that with the changes in your hormones post-partum, these cramps are akin to what I experience on a bad month. Perhaps you can get mild muscle relaxers? Ask your OBYGN, there must be a solution. Never live in pain. Your life is too precious to be wasted in that way.
