Heatherw Posted February 14, 2013 Share Posted February 14, 2013 I have three children and am nursing my youngest, 16 months. My cycles have just started again a couple of months ago and they are wry irregular. So I was surprised to wake up with my period this morning, and a heavy one at that. On day 4 of my Whole30. Great timing huh??? Ughhhh. So on top of my zoned out feeling, sore throat and headaches and digestive issues I now have cramps, bloating and even more irritability. I am homeschooling my oldest and let's just say a nap is NOT an option; laying on the couch for more than ten minutes isn't either!!! Further, my cycle or the Whole30 (or both) seems to have caused a dip in my milk supply. And the past two nights my baby has woken 5-6 times. He is fine during the day (just wanting to nurse more). With ALL of this going on at once, I am barely functional. I keep thinking that things were better the way they were and I want my old life back!!! Any advice or words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
