After delivery there is Vaginal discharge, so when will menstruation returns?
Do you need to continue to wear pad until menstruation returns?
Are you breastfeeding?
read from web that if breastfeeding, menses will come late and when it comes, it might be very painfull for some..it may take up to half a year for it to returns..
wonder if it is true cos bel it or not, though i dont like to have menses cos its troublesome and painfull, but having menses means having ovulation and chances of getting pregnant is there..
**envy those pregnant ladies on the street.. hahah
how many kids you have or do you have a difficult pregnancy or delivery thats why you dont like to be pregnant again?
for me, maybe my pregnancy and delivery is rather smooth except for the two weeks of pain after delivery and i want to have at leats two kids so i would like to get pregnant again.
when did you gave birth? i also doing partial bf cos at night cannot let baby cry too lon(need few mins to warm up breast milk).
I also dont't want to have another child because when old they will tend to push responsible off like taking care of parents. Maybe I watch too much TV. Shows always have some story on how old aged parents are being push away... Thrown into old age home or push to siblings to take care. Real life also got examples.
Another reason is too broke for another one as having one already living cost is over what is given by govt as baby bonus.
Another reason is because I am vain. dont't want to go through another time of getting fat and getting eye bags from lack of sleep.
Lastly, I am sick of whiny crying sounds. dont't have anymore personal time. Whenever hear whiny sound must rush to attend. Worst then working.
All the reasons just put me off from contributing more babies.
ha.. but having one child makes the child rather lonely.. and they wont have anyone to discuss with if they got problem..
yes, taking care of a baby/child now makes us looks like a old panda but dont you think looking at their adorable face makes us forget everything?
i am vain too.. even told my hubby i want to go london weight management in future if get too fat.. (though now also fat ) .. GALS ARE NEVER HAPPY WITH THEIR WEIGHT.
personal time wise, you can ask your mother or mother in law help you look after them or ask your hubby help out when you go out with your friends. i am sure they will be more than happy to do so
Depends on what one wants. I prefer to have only one kid. I dont't think having more will make child less lonely. Can always have more friends so can share problems.
Burden to take care of us when old? I guess having more kids also dont't mean no burden for them. Depends how they think also. They might have a few children of their own and earning not enough, then also a burden for them to take care of husband and me when we are old.
Or they might find excuses to push the taking care of us to siblings if got any too. Not everyone got the luck of getting good and responsible siblings.
I am happy with my old weight. Who says gals never happy with their weight. Now hope to get back my original weight.
Anyway we seems to be away from the main topic.

I'm exclusively breastfeeding but my menses returned when baby was 3 months old and was erratic for awhile before it returned to a monthly cycle...
I was on total breastfeeding initially, then partial breastfeeding and now on total FM. My baby is 6 weeks old.
Lochia lasted for about a month then disappeared for about 2 weeks. However, today, there was blood on my underwear! And it looks suspiciously like my period.
Any way to tell if it is indeed my period or just the remnants of lochia???
Am really anxious as I DO NOT want to get pregnant again!!!
