Is it just me?

Or does your TOM change when you lose weight?  There was a time when I had that special time for 8 weeks straight.  It was no fun, no fun at all.  The Dr. told me that I was fine despite the constant blood loss (sorry that this is so gross, but I need to know these things).  Now that I am losing weight at a good pace, it seems that I am starting to get regular, however I am now noticing that I am bitchy during but so emotional after. 

Let's look at today shall we?  I was done with my TOM yesterday and normally I am fine, but today for some reason I want to cry at everything.  I eat lunch at my desk most of the time and watch tv on hulu or other shows I don't watch at home.  So today I decide to watch 16 & Pregnant on MTV....don't judge me!  Lord, you would have thought I had given my baby up for adoption!  I bawled like a baby!  What is wrong with me?!  I started thinking about me not having kids yet and how much I want a baby.  Then I have to go and make it worse by calling Joe.  In not so many words he pretty  much tells me I'm crazy!  Thanks for the love, jackass! 

What is wrong with me?


  1. Oh Kim! It isn't you. It is all those damn hormones. I literally NEVER cry. I didn't cry when any of my grandparents died. I just don't cry for anything. Last week my fella and I had a fight and I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed. I thought they were going to cart me away to the looney bin. I don't know if it is the weight loss or what, but I am right there with you!

  2. Oh you are so not crazy!! I put that show on this a.m (yay for dvr) and cried while watching it too.. I thought it was because my (TOM) is coming up.. :0) She was brave and I think she made the right choice..

  3. Kim - in my opinion - you have a body organ (aka whootananny) that causes you to bleed for days at a time...if a man had to deal with that he'd be dead in five days from the tantrums he'd throw....cry all you want....we all understand....and join the Whootananny's R Us club too. We're all card carrying members.

  4. It's not just you! I have the same thing during my TOM. DH and I had an argument and I was so upset. It was the dumbest thing ever. ( considering buying a car from a company who took a government bailout. OMG - Really????)
    Anyway, I just cried and cried and felt like every problem in my world was amplified by 100.
    I honestly believe that between TOM and weight loss it affects our hormones something terrible!
    Doesn't fat hold onto estrogen? Then it makes sense that when we lose weight that estrogen is getting out and making us crazy.
    It will pass. I'd hug you if I could.
    you WILL have a baby are on the path right this second. Each day is one day closer.

  5. Thank you! I could use a hug right now. I am just in this weird funk and I hope I snap out of it soon.

  6. You are not crazy - but you are definately a female. I know I am preggers right now but it is normal for me (prior to pregnancy) to cry during ads for goodness sake. I cry at the drop of a hat. :-)

    And when it is to do with something you want it gives you an outlet to cry :-)

    When you want a baby some days are more emotional than others (I had a 3 year wait with my first - and a 3 year wait with my second too) - when you are preggers all this waiting and emotions will feel like it happened to someone else :-)

  7. I am sure even the evil stepmother because there is always one in fairy tales cries at that time...
    I have watched 16 and pregnant several time, I watch all these shows where people have baby praying I will have one one day.
    My TOM is really not regular. I used to take the pill to make it regular until I had to stop for my blood pressure and since I have stopped (at the end of december) i am waiting desperately to see blood... i know it's mad but i was told I was too big to get pregnant and when my TOM is regular it will be a good sign I have more chances to have a baby.

    We are all the same don't worry
