 Light cramps when my period started, from 10am – 12pm (took 2 ibuprofen), no cramps for the rest of the day. Light cramps again the following morning at 5am for about 2 hours (I heated up a wheat bag, but didn’t use any pain killers).

February 2012

Light constant cramps, when my period started, from 6am to 4pm (I got up at 6.30am to get ibuprofen & a hot water bottle, then went back to sleep). I stained my bed sheet when my period started, and I couldn’t get the blood completely out.

Day One: no cramps at all. Day Two: Moderate-bad cramps at 6am (got up to get hottie and take pain relief medication). The cramps went away completely by 6.45am & I went back to sleep. Mild cramps from time to time & hot water bottle and ibuprofen throughout the day.

May 2012

Day One: 30 minutes of mild cramps in the morning, then no more cramps for rest of day. Day Two: I woke up about an hour earlier than usual with very mild cramps. Felt a bit nauseous for a few hours after waking up, and also weak/faint/weird. I had a shower, but I needed to turn the water off twice during the shower so that I could lie down and elevate my legs. After the shower I got myself a bowl in case I threw up. I didn’t feel like eating but forced myself to eat a little. I started to feel better & felt fine from 10am onwards. Day Three: I woke at 5am with mild cramps, they left after 45 minutes and I went back to sleep. Very mild cramps through most of the afternoon.
