AF is back and with a vengeance. I was really hoping to get at least 6 months off while exclusively breastfeeding but that obviously didn't work out. Apparently many women get 6-12 months (or more) without their period while breastfeeding but I did not get to be one of those lucky ladies. At least I made it to 4.5 months. For approx 13 months I only bled for one 6 week stretch until now so I guess I can't complain too much.
Now I have to ask - did any of you go right back to tampons or did you avoid them after giving birth, for fear of any pain? I wasn't completely sure but since AF came back her usual heavy self I opted for the tampons this morning and thus far they haven't been a problem. I was just glad my tampon/pad supply was still stocked and ready to go. Yuck.
Now as a reward for having to read about that I present one of Aiden's 3 month pics (I know he's four months now, I just love this pic) for your viewing pleasure:
Don't you just love his little crinkle forehead and the ever so dimply elbows??
