Sometimes I really hate being a woman...

    I'm not loving all the symptoms so far, exactly, but for some strange reason, I am really, really looking forward to this next "stage" of my life. I love phases and watching things evolve, including myself. As I've gotten older, I've actually gotten happier - more content. I do have a lot of mood swings with peri (and very strange, irregular periods) but I feel like once I come out on the other side, it's going to be a good thing.

    This is really inspiring to read!
  • Normally my periods are pretty minimal, but this round put me up 10 lbs! I was shocked as usually a 3-4 lb gain is pretty normal. I know I gave into my cravings way too frequently...but wondering if anyone else has had such a dramatic gain? I don't *feel* overly bloated but I'm really crossing my fingers that is the case and it goes away? Any tricks to get the bloat to go away faster?

    BTW I'm definitely going to try the greek yogurt with Nutella and strawberries. Sounds so yummy. I don't have any strawberries now, or I would try it. I'll have to get some tomorrow. The cravings will still be going strong then I'm sure.
    Don't let lack of berries hold you back - it's awesome without them too!

    I've added honey to Greek yogurt with whatever fruit I have, usually bananas and then some chocolate chips and whatever nuts I have, we've made it into a healthy desert and my son loved it to.
