One of the benefits of nursing is Aunt Flo usually doesn't come a knockin'. (Did all of my male readers just run away?) I had heard this happens but wasn't sure what to expect with Lucas. Well she stayed away for a good 14 months! So plus the 9 months I was pregnant that was almost two years of wonderful bliss.
I was totally excited for this to happen again after Alex. After the initial um.. clean-out (sorry guys), I was expecting to be on my merry way; but one month later and I had a visit! And I had that darn lady came back every month the entire time I nursed.
She nursed all of the time and just look... yes that was all from me.
So needless to say, I didn't have my hopes up this time, especially with Ryder being a preemie and things just being weird. But low and behold that Auntie is staying away! Us ladies know how uncomfortable this subject makes most men... and so my only conclusion is that it is a guy thing. Boys don't like it, so it stays at bay for my guys. Now if only I could keep that benefit when I am done nursing...
