AF Shout Out

She arrived with spiky thorns and gut punches last night. Happy dances ensued. Then, due to the typical pain and bloating, I popped some Aleve and went to bed. Thanks for the AF cheers ladies!

So while I am bent over at my desk today, trying to convince myself that I can make it through this Tuesday (CD2!!!) without taking the whole bottle of Aleve, I leave you with these images......

I wonder who thought of this? Someone like me who was waiting for AF to start IVF? Or someone with a pregnancy scare?

Also, has anyone seen these before?:
They're Luna Pads. They appear to be like cloth diapers. But instead, they're cloth pads.
I don't even like washing my ruined underwear after a period accident (sorry, TMI). Why would I want to put my used pads or pantiliners in the wash? On purpose?


Though if you think about it, women had to use cloth pads or whatever before disposable sanitary options were available. Maybe it's because I've never had to go without tampons or pads, but I can't fathom having to keep my period stuff in a drawer that I can't throw away.....

I hope it's not too gross, but I'd love to hear some opinions on this....ladies? Anyone?

Hi Christa, I totally understand where you are coming from on the washable menstrual pads BUT I recently made the switch myself in an attempt to lower my exposure to toxins in preparation for pregnancy and I was HAPPILY surprised. Honestly, it's so much easier then I thought it would be!

You can read about my experience here: http://prenatalcoach.com/diva-cup-lunapanties-lunapads-review/

I've been using tampons and pads for YEARS and wish I would have made the switch sooner now that I've experienced how easy it is. I feel so much better knowing that my body isn't absorbing all the toxins from the tampons as I prepare my body for pregnancy (cotton is one of the most highly sprayed crops!)

Anyway, thought I'd chime in with my thoughts since you asked :)
