Thank you mamas!
I may be calling the county and asking to get put back on bc pills (which because I had my tubes tied I don't need them) if its any worse than when I was a teen, so far the aches are almost as bad which really scares me. I was hospitalized once as a teen because I was loosing way too much blood, and it was almost a "normal" period for me. I'll be watching to see what other mamas say too.
and no it certainly isn't fair! I am nursing it seems like ALL DAY LONG lol. sometimes every hour in the evening, but thankfully she is a good night sleeper, she gives me at least 5 hours straight.
