I started my period today – yes, Aunt Flow is visiting us for the holidays!
In light that Moo and I are trying to start a family, this is not how I wanted to start the Labor Day holiday.
Any woman who says that she feels more like a woman because she menstruates is insane. You heard me.
Bleeding out of my lady bits doesn’t make me feel womanly. It’s sticky, weird and gross. There’s nothing even remotely dignified about it – for 3-5 days, you wear a diaper or a bit of fluff stuffed up your twat to take care of things. Doesn’t sound like too much fun does it?
Additionally, there’s the fun of PMS, cramping, diarrhea, nausea, bloating, and bitchiness.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy being a girl. But I could do without the bleeding. Right now, the bleeding is a sign of failure. Most other months, it’s just a nuisance.
I doubt that menopause will depress me. Some women feel less womanly after menopause. To me, it would be a relief to have that portion of my life over.
But right now, I’ll keep on writing down the day I start and I’ll keep on timing things cause I want a bambino.
