The way things were working out- my stupid period wouldn’t come until AFTER our Disney trip. My period may not be regular as far as how long in between, but typically it’s always late and never early. Being that my last one was at the beginning of this month, I figured the next would come at the beginning of April, meaning the end of April (our Disney trip) would be spared, as the next after that wouldn’t come until early May.
I can never guarantee that of course, but as little as I know my cycles, I know them well enough to know that early NEVER happens- so end of April seemed impossible for my period to strike.
Wouldn’t you know it, last night I got that oh-so familiar cramp starting in my stomach area. A lot of things feel similar to early period cramps. Gas especially. I’d made carne asada for the first time last night for dinner, and my stomach being the ornery bitch that it is? I figured it could easily just be gas from the lemon juice, garlic and onion marinade I cooked it in. For sensitive stomachs that sounds like a recipe for explosive shits, gas would have been the easy way out.
With most of my tummy troubles, I can go to sleep, wake up and feel totally normal. Not the case this time around. I woke up and the cramps were STILL paining me. At that point I thought it MUST be my period… even though with every past period I don’t get cramps until AFTER the blood starts-a-flowin’, having gas four hours upon hours just doesn’t make sense.
Don’t even let pregnancy run through your heads right now! I know you’re thinking it- and lemme tell you, i’m even more positive than I was before Parker’s immaculate conception that it’s not even remotely possible.
In the act of full disclosure, i’ll tell you that I HAVE in fact been farting and pooping all day, attractive I know. I’m wondering if my stomach has caught on to the strange pooping/non-pooping trend and has decided to fuck with me.
I’m honestly crossing my fingers the blood doesn’t start in the next few days because I honestly can NOT imagine walking around Disney bleeding from my nethers. Anyone with a period knows how miserable that would be… and with my periods? My whole crotch ACHES all day long like it’s going to fall off. Walking for 8 hours + per day and the heat combined with that? It would be death. This is supposed to be a vacation, not bloody vagina aching fest.
You wouldn't sniff a stranger's butt to see who pooped their pants.... so you probably shouldn't do these other parental things to strangers, either. holdinholden.com/2017/12/weir…

You know that feeling when you don't chew a chip all the way and it cuts you all the way down and you swear it's gonna kill you, but you go ahead have another right after? That's what it's like when you decide to have another kid.
