I currently co-sleep with and breastfeed my 2.5 yo (still lots of night feeding). I've been having a difficult time with symptoms that I assume are associated with hormones. I haven't gotten my period back, but I wonder if it is starting to return?
Did anyone else have very strong and unpleasant symptoms over the course of weeks or months, while their body adjusted to menstruating/ovulating again?
My symptoms include nausea, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress, aching and pain in the abdomen/middle area, sensitivity to smells, general super yucky feeling. Reminiscent of being pregnant, actually (but I'm not). It's not all the time; I've started to keep track of it.
Any ideas for how to alleviate symptoms? I'd go on the mini-pill, but we'd like to have another child, so that's not really an option.
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
