Ok I started MC thursday of last week so today is my 7th day. Wanted to share my experience for anyone out there and also curious if anyone has had the same.
I somewhat started my period yesterday (spotting) but by night time I wore my usual always pad. This morning (5am), I woke with sever cramps!!! I went to use the bathroom and the flow wasn't that much but I notice the blood was dark. I was still cramping real bad. I sat on the floor in the living and I was sweating & feeling very very dizzy. I noticed a slight shake in my hand. All this while my cramps were unbearable. I managed to drag myself to the kitchen and was getting ready for my saltwater flush but I just couldn't. I was too weak. So I decided I needed some sugar in me fast! I instead mixed my lemonade and made it back to the living room. I sat for another 5min with my symptoms getting worse that's how weak i was. Then with all the strength in me I started to drink slowly. Within 1min I was not as weak and felt slightly better but cramps was still off the map! I then took 2 midols with water. Boy of boy was I feeling better!!! All cramps gone now and I wasn't as weak. I have been drinking my lemonade mix more though (maybe my system was low in sugar). Not sure if I took my usual 6 mixes yesterday or 1 less as I was doing a lot of running around. Anyway, I am somewhat back to normal but scared of a repeat episode when I wake up tomorrow. At some point i was contemplating breaking the fast but I am glad I did not.
I am hoping to do 40 days!!! Wish me luck!
