I miss "easy" periods!


My husband and I have been ttc for four months now. Before then, I had been on birth control for eight years. I always used the kind that still caused af, but it was barely more than spotting and essentially symptom-free. Now that I'm off bc for the first time in years, the spotting has turned back into a freaking flood complete with cramping, bloating, and mood swings. I know this is nothing compared to a pregnancy, but at least those symptoms won't last more than nine months. Is anyone else tired of having "real" periods while waiting for their BFP?
