So Aunt Flo has come to visit again. Now, typically I can get by the first day without having to really address the issue – I mean I don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t have to stop going commando.
Well apparently this one is different. Apparently this one decided t come on immediately. Which I didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t know until about 11pm when I got off the bed and saw a spot. This is after I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢d gotten strawberry juice on the bed anyway. Hotel cleaning service is gonna love me.
Now it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s at this time that I realize all my pads etc are in some storage bin in some part of town. I remember being in my bathroom before we moved, looking at my stash going, eh, might as well pack that, I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢m sure that period I got a few weeks ago was just a fluke, what are the chances that me being irregular AND breast feeding are going to yield a period before we get moved in?
Apparently just enough to fuck with me at 11pm when there?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s no way I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢m waking up Tiny Baby Kaiser to go to the store.
So I remedy the situation with a breast pad in the pants and feel quite smart.
Until I wake up the next morning, sit up to pump and promptly make a spot on the bed the size of?¢‚Ç¨¬¶ well it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s large.
At this point it occurs to me that the better choice for absorbency in an emergency might have been all the DIAPERS rather than a pad the size of a nipple that?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s not really made for this sort of thing.
So to just make today even better?¢‚Ç¨¬¶. I haul ass out of here to go to the store to get actual pads. Now I recently read a post on another blog that made me not want to buy Always. I also didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t feel like I needed a woman diaper, so I opted against Kotex. I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢m not quite up to trying tampons after Alex – the geography has changed enough that I don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t want to play that game quite yet. So Carefree. Yeah. My mom used to use Carefree, this seemed like a good choice. I didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t want a femme diaper so I got ?¢‚Ç¨?ìmedium coverage?¢‚Ç¨¬ù This seemed like a great choice.
Um yeah. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a fucking pantiliner. I have 96 ?¢‚Ç¨?ìmedium coverage?¢‚Ç¨¬ù pads that are pantiliners. Don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t let the packaging fool you. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a liner. It doesn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t say this anywhere on the box. But it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a liner.
Oh yeah. This day is just *awesome*.
Those pantiliners make great stickers for the kid’s forehead. He’ll love them.

I’ve tried other stuff, but always come back to Always. It’s the only kind that works. My midwife told me that some women have sensitivity issues with Always, but I’ve never had that problem, so I’ll use what works TYVM.

I thought the breast pad was genius, but you are right the diaper would have been better…

LOL, sounds like you’ve had a rough day!
I thought the breast pads were a very clever idea!

Ugh. I remember those days. But since I pulled the goalie on my birth control pills I haven’t gotten my period at all. God help me, I know I’m not preggers, so I must be going through the big M. Ten years too soon.

OMG! I just spit coffee reading about the breast pad!!! Oh man…I’m so sorry this happened. I can SO relate to the geography change 🙁

Breast pads didn’t even protect me from leakage. I used pads. On my boobs AND my girly bits. Fun times… and a full bin.
Kelley’s last blog post..Mosh!
Now that you’ve got the full 96-pack, using 2 liners at once works until you get to the store.
Thanks for the compliment on my hair. You know how curly hair is, though, you love it, you hate it. So when are you going to let us know what you decided?
Ugh! Reason 745 to stay perpetually pregnant!
Yeah, medium coverage is a joke. Speaking of hair, I just chopped a bunch of mine off. It looks good, and is better for summer than my usual pony. 🙂
Ah, the curse. I have a friend (male, actually) who somehow can’t manage a hotel stay without bleeding. Perhaps this could be your calling card. Heheh.
In other news, I’m sorry that I didn’t know about your dad passing. It must have happened around the time that I lost my own dad. I’ve written about it in scathing ways, which has helped somewhat. The one called “Primal Scream” was especially helpful, if not violent toward mankind. Maybe it will help you. Maybe not. But just know that you have a kindred spirit out in the bloggy world.
Oh yeah, girly issues … good times.
