So, I have a question. Ya’ll know I turned 40 last month, and I’ve noticed a bit of a change in my last couple of cycles. Since my first child, I have have had clockwork menstrual cycles, every 28 days, first thing in the morning, except when pregnant or nursing. The last couple of months, though, I’ve been late. First by a day, and then by a couple of days. I’m the first gal in my family to go through natural menopause in a couple of generations, so I have no one to ask “what’s normal”? My question then is: is this normal?
Because really, as much fun as a new baby would be, it’s kind of roller-coaster-ish to wonder each month if I need to shop for maternity clothes.
