I had to laugh, one of my sons mates was recently over and he actually saw Flo (the period app) on my phone and he was like – ❤️❤️❤️ I love looking at peoples Flo’s ❤️❤️❤️ So I handed over my phone and he was looking through the last two years of Data and yes over the last 5 months my periods have gone weird. He said – wow thats weird …….. I agree with that assessment. I asked my doctor about it – he said with everything that I have gone through lately it is no wonder I am not as regular – yes I agree with that but he also pointed out that my very low weight might be stuffing around with my hormones. I am actually sure that it most definitely is! But lets be honest – early menopause runs on my mums side of our family.

That got me thinking – Gosh it is a strange thought to imagine myself beyond the “reproductive years”. I know that we do have a grown child and another son about to turn 18 but I have friends that are having babies at my age and it makes my ovaries literally hurt. I also have friends that cannot, for all kinds of medical reasons, have more children. This is the category that I fell into a few years ago when we were seriously considering another child. Yes, yes roll your eyes if you must but I imagined being a mother from when I was a little child. These beautiful people were loved long before I carried them and I know how blessed I am to have been afforded the opportunity to be their mother.
