That's another fun little fact no one ever told me about when I was pregnant and then breast feeding. Along with weird stomach skin, and no memory, and random hairs, and phantom baby kicks (which I've talked about before) also comes horrible postpartum PMS.
While I enjoyed 9 extremely calm and emotionally level months while growing Growly Bear, and then another 10 calm and emotionally level months while proving her food, no one warned me that after she weaned, my body would go into PMS overdrive and I would hate everyone and everything for about 4 days outta the month, every month, for an undisclosed amount of time.
When I was talking to my doctor about this a couple months ago, he joked that for my well being and for the sake of my marriage, maybe I should just be on a constant cycle of pregnant and then breast feeding for as long as possible, and then, repeat! Seeing as my husband would be more then thrilled with a baseball team sized family, I'm sure he'd be OK with this "suggestion".
And sometimes, when I'm in the middle of a 4 day hate on for the entire world, it seems like it might not be such a bad idea to me too!
The funnest part is, I'm such a dolt, I don't even realize I'm PMSing until I'm well into it. You'd think I would pick up on the signs. For instance - while watching Big Brother the other night, the "Have Nots" for the week were given only pudding and pork rinds to snack on. I thought to myself "Hell yeah! I could go for some pudding and pork rinds right now!" Really? Ew!
Then, a couple nights ago, my husband had the audacity to heat up some left over Extra Creamy Mac & Cheese. Don't know why, but the sound of him rummaging around in the kitchen was pretty much the most annoying sound in the entire world to me at that moment.
But, seeing as I'm not knocked up, and not breast feeding, I guess I'm stuck in a PMS rut for at least another day or two, so, I'll just sit here wanting to eat everything in the entire house, and wishing I could kick someone in the shin just becasue I think it might be kind fun right now.
You've had fair warning... don't poke the bear!
On a happy note thought... It's FIVE months till Christmas! Yaaahoooo!!!!!
