I have been on contraception since my early teens. Obviously not during pregnancy and i went back on it 6 weeks after bubs was born.
Therefore i cannot remember what it actually feels like when i am due to get my period or when i am on my period.
The last 2 months i have come off contraception as we are TTC #2
I have had 2 short light periods in that time.
Both times just before i get my period all i want to do is sleep and EAT! I feel bloated and fat.
When i am on my period i feel dizzy and frail. I dont want to leave the house incase i may faint. I get headaches for the whole time im on my period.
Sometimes when im out or just at home i need to stop and sit down with a sweet drink or eat something because i feel dizzy and tired. It's completely out of my norm!
As soon as my period ends im back to normal and feel fine.
Then i start to feel tired again about a week before my period is due, its a viscoius cycle and it's annoying!
Is this just normal stuff that happens around the time you get a period?
