I swear I don't think this period is going to end. It just gets heavier and heavier and heavier. And it goes on and on and on. The cramping is completely obnoxious. I have always been cursed with bad periods but this is ridiculous. I already have low iron but it must be near the bottom right now. I am pastey in color, exhausted and I almost passed out in the shower this morning. I normally don't like to take meds or supps, but I think I am going to head to Walgreens on my lunch to get a decent multivitamin with iron.
My five-day-weekend rocked! We had a lot of fun and made a lot of outings...from hanging at friend's houses to going to Grant's Farm to visiting Meramec Caverns to some good old fashioned swimming. I am especially proud of Alia who one day could NOT swim and then suddenly COULD! She has really made great strides with swimming and can now swim about 6 to 8 feet on her own. Yay Alia!!!
