Spot on.

You guys, I was right. I started my cycle the day after that last post, where I talked about maybe having a connection between my cycle and feeling blue. And no kidding, I immediately felt better, and have been doing fine since. My world isn't ending, things look (somewhat)hopeful, and I haven't bawled my eyes out anymore.

So, next month, we'll see if there's a repeat in my emotional roller coaster.  Thanks to all who commented on that last post.  It feels so good to know that I can put something sensitive out there and get support and advice and general well-wishing.  So good.  Thank you!


  1. Hey, I don't know if this is too personal... and you may have mentioned it somewhere on your blog already. I am a new visitor (just came across you today), but will definitely be a returning one. I was curious when your cycle returned? I am breastfeeding now at 8 months and I saw in another post you said you are embracing a child-led weaning process and your little one isn't ready to stop yet. If this is too personal, I understand. If not, I'd love to get an idea for when I can expect my annoying old friend to return. :) Feel free to PM me on my website if you'd rather not post an answer on here!

  2. Melanie, I started back at 7 months postpartum... I was really hoping I'd wait longer since I was still breastfeeding. But I know everyone is different!


I love comments! I read every single one and try to respond to most of them (during the baby's naps or in between loads of laundry). I value any and all thoughts, advice, and tidbits that you want to share!
