After nearly 18 months of bliss, my body has returned mostly to a state of normalcy. My period has returned.
As a nursing mother, I was fortunate to be able to go this long without a monthly cycle, as many other women in my family and in my group of friends have not even gone the first 3 months after baby came. I know how lucky I am, but sometimes I wondered if I was healthy or not. I got worried that maybe my first pregnancy was some sort of freak accident and I might not have other children.
It's good to know that I'm back to normal, as much as I hate what 'normal' entails. Now I know why I've been soooo moody and why I've been feeling really funky lately. It means I can have more kids... like we'll ever be ready for more. >.>
