I'll be posting this on a few different boards, hopefully generating some more answers or ideas. And this isn't a "birth" topic, but i thought my natural mommies might know about this...


I feel MUCH more normal when i have AF. is that wierd? During AF, it's said you should be bloated, cranky, tired, hungrier...just all around blah. Well, I'm the opposite. I lose weight right before AF shows, a good 3 pounds usually! And once it's here, I'm calmer, clearer, i have a normal hunger instead of a ravenous hunger like usual, i feel thinner and my skin looks better, i feel way prettier and all around healthier physically and mentally. The weight slowly comes back as AF comes and ends, so i never actually lose the weight, but it's nice to see it happen lol

I was told by a masseuse recently that when we have our our menstrual cycle, the progesterone is rises and that women who have higher than normal estrogen levels will be better balanced hormonally when this happens. This could possibly explain why i feel amazing during pregnancy and look much healthier, again when progesterone is high.

Does anyone know about this stuff? Is this at all possible? Should i look into progesterone cream and can it effect my breastmilk?

TIA to anyone who knows anything or has suggestions.

I never feel great on my period but I'm jealous that you do!

I have a book on yoga and the menstrual cycle that is pretty interesting. Of course it's about yoga but it talks a lot about what our bodies do throughout our cycle and things we can physically do to help ourselves feel better during the different parts of our cycles. Might be worth checking out of the library to read.

Before I had Alissa I felt just fine during AF and wondered why people had PMS, when I was younger. Since I had her it has changed! But I don't know why?
