(For Part 1, scroll back 🤗). Part 2: Now then. Let me explain: if a man really fux witchu, he gon be a jealous mess when y'all break up or "take a break". He gon be jealous of anyone u hang out with bc if he fux with u, ain no break. IN HIS MIND YALL STILL A COUPLE YALL JUST HAVING ISSUES 😐. Marquis who u dated for two weeks while on break? If u mention that to your ex? In his mind? Marquis PP built like a Voss water bottle and he lasted 17 hours. U all swollen and shaking and u like "Marquis OMG chill!!" And Marquis like "NAWWWW BABY ONE MO GENN" rubbing his hands like Birdman while his glisteny dangalang start saluting so he could rearrange yo anatomy to where yo spleen sits in yo esophagus now. That ain't een anatomically possible but that's what your ex imagine. He think u go to sleep every night and dream of having a home with a white picket fence with Marquis and 3.5 children and an Audi SUV that u bought because u the provider but u ok with that arrangement because the PP game so on point u don't mind being the mommy and the daddy and he just drop u off at work and drop the kids off at school and play 2K all day and possibly cheat on u using YOUR car but again u will let it slide off the quality of the PP. U feel me? This is the jealous male mind - any other man than him is bigger stronger better in bed more manly more dominant etc. Don't matter that Marquis could have been a 4.5 inch minute man who u only hung out with because he was sincere and always had good weed. To yo man? U in love with Marquis and still miss him - dearly. Yo man could be this jealous if u dated Marquis even before u met him lol! Literally men will be jealous of your OLD EXES! That's how fragile men are! Personally IDGAF about exes (bc I know I'm the sh!t 🤗) and when I've tooken breaks with girls I'm not monitoring they movements but this is how men think. It effs they head up bruv. And then they do disloyal tings bc on the basis of what u did on break somehow that's disloyal. Again: not logical. What's the solution? Peep Part 3 to find out bless up 😄😂😂😂: u/BrittanyLD ld i.redd.it She was the last puppy at the shelter.

I've heard worse comebacks from couples. I'm at six flags waiting in these long ass lines because they charge a arm and a leg for the damn fast pass. I'm bout to ride Eltoro. I'm standing behind this couple as I wait. The argument started because the dude drank all of his girls milkshake. I could understand the temperature was hot as balls. Everybody is trying to gets trapped in and they still going at it. It's getting fierce now. The rise starts and We at all the top. The guy next to me is cracking up at them. They in the midst of the fiercest roast session and the guy starts snapchating it. You know how roller coasters be pausing for a second. Nah this sucker just shot off. My spleen was hunping my heart.

The dude next to me had to be the one nigga to drop his phone on a ride. Good for his ass he had a android. The ride stops and the guy gives his girl the wig back.

We can’t wait around for male doctors to decide what we need to know. This is why we need to take control and educate ourselves about our own bodies. and here’s some comments i saw under the post. why is this a pattern?? why is this a recurring theme?? why is this information not common knowledge? what the fuck are doctors doing?? This is news to me so let’s share it so people will know! Gross tmi: but i passed a pretty big clot after having my daughter. It was about the size of a baseball. It actually hurt worse because while 15 hours of labor opened my cervix, i passed the clot in 30 minutes. I knew it was a possibility because of my midwife and reading, but everyone Ive told after this (mostly other pregnant women) were shocked that this could happen. In our culture, it’s much more common to do deep research about what family cars we want to buy than we do about childbirth when we ’re pregnant. Tmi: I passed a huge clot after birth in the bathroom of my hospital room and called the nurse sobbing because I didn’t know it was normal. She treated me like an idiot, but NO ONE told me it was a possibility. And the pain associated with healing for the first couple of weeks after birth was worse than the labor imo. Again, I had no idea. They didn’t tell me a thing besides “sitz bath regularly and change your pads.” Before discharging me from the hospital. I was most definitely told about this in school. Fucking hell, 4-6 weeks of bleeding? My periods were/are bad enough, why the hell don’t we get told this? I didn’t know it could last so long, wtf? Is the bleeding inevitable after birth?  Bleeding is inevitable after birth - your uterine wall is shedding a fuck ton of lining. It can last from three to six weeks (possible longer) and it tapers off. More TMI - I passed a MASSIVE clot after my fourth birth. At this point I already knew this could happen - it’s normal. What I DIDN’T know, was that I had caused it. My post birth contractions were so bad after the birth that it felt like full transition labor. And they don’t give you anything for the pain. So I used a hot water bottle, without the nurses knowing, and it caused me to bleed even more. I lost so much blood that by the first time they sat me up to go to the bathroom, I fainted. It took three more tries until I could sit up. Anyway, that’s not the point. The point is, the next morning I passed a clot the SIZE OF ANOTHER PLACENTA I KID YOU NOT, and I know what is and is not normal. So I called for the nurse and through the door told her I had passed a huge clot, and her response was - “It’s not big. I know what big is.” She hadn’t even looked. So I rolled my eyes and said, “Yeah, no. It’s big, I’m telling you.” So, sounding extremely put upon, she asked me to open the door. I did, and after a long pause she goes, “Okay, yeah, that’s a little big.” YOU DON’T SAY. The point I’m trying to get across is that this shit is so common - women not knowing this stuff is so expected, and it keeps getting reinforced. People don’t expect you to know anything, don’t teach you anything, and then make you feel like you’re totally ignorant and a burden for your lack of knowledge when THEY WON’T SHARE. Fucking learn EVERYTHING you can when it comes to childbirth, girls. It is the single most empowering thing you can do for yourself. And if you missed something, that’s okay. But the more knowledge you arm yourself with, the more in control of your situation you’ll be. A few post partum tips: DON’T use a hot water bottle - lol. ONLY pads - NO tampons. Tampons can cause severe infection, not to mention, you probably don’t want to be shoving anything up there any time soon. If you’ve had stitches, sitz baths DO help relieve the pain. Another great pain reliever? Dampen some pads and freeze them. Let one thaw slightly and use it on top of another pad. This will help with the pain as well as reduce swelling. Change the pad out as soon as it’s thawed completely. This REALLY helps on the first couple days after giving birth. If you pass a clot, don’t sweat it. Even the one I passed, which was fucking massive, just required that we keep an eye out to make sure it didn’t happen again. If it does, talk to your doctor. Take a pain killer half an hour before nursing. Because YES - your uterus is contracting after you give birth, to get back to its original size, and nursing causes much stronger contractions. Taking nursing-safe painkillers won’t prevent the pain, but it will reduce it.  Buy disposable underwear for the first few days after birth. They will get VERY dirty. Or use your ratty old pairs that you’re ready to get rid of. Double up on pads - line them all the way up your ass-crack. I am so serious. And wear dark pants. Pee in the shower. You do NOT want to wipe down there right after birth because ow. Peeing in the shower lets you just rinse afterwards. Especially if you’ve had stitches, peeing in the shower, with the shower-head rinsing AS you go, keeps stinging to a minimum. And fuck everyone else - keep on peeing in the shower until you feel ready to move back to toilet paper. Middle of the night and need to pee? Get your pants off - get in the shower and just go. This is just a few things, but PLEASE feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions about ANYTHING childbirth/pregnancy/nursing related. I have four incredible kids. I’ve done it all - c-section, vacuume birth, episiotimy, stitches, with an epidural, without an epidural. I’m here. ….I know I keep reblogging this but people keep adding super important information. I feel like no one tells women this stuff because if a woman was even a little on the fence about having a baby before this would kinda make them run for the damn hills. …..you are correct, typing. 300% EXTRA SURE I’M NOT HAVING BABIES.  peri bottles, witch hazel or anti-pain anticeptic spray are your friends. Also passing large clots after birth is a WARNING SIGN. Bigger than a half dollar is a sign that you have not passed your entire placenta (this is most common in hospital vaginal births where the mother is not allowed to naturally birth the placenta and instead has it ripped out by the doctor) if there is any placenta left in your uterus you can get extremely ill. This happened to both myself and my mother in law WOW I didn’t know any of this and I’m terrified of what more I’m unaware of about my own body :( Honestly when will we fucking abolish this taboo about the female body… I had pretty great sex ed in school (lots of contraceptive information, and totally acknowledged that teenagers might have sex) and all of this is news to me. And, as a 28-year-old person with a uterus, I’m extremely appalled I’m just learning this. Long, but very important information, even for those who don’t plan to have children, because you will almost certainly know someone who will, and you might be able to to help them. Or at least increase your level of empathy for them. …HOLY HELL. REBLOG TO SAVE A LIFE, SERIOUSLY. people loooove to make out like pregnancy and childbirth are this beautiful thing that a woman’s body is made to do, and leave out all this incredibly important and scary info. the healthcare system fails women in so so many ways, especially around sexual and reproductive health, and it needs to stop. What the fuck first of allSecond Idk if having a kid is worth this now.: Lauren Sewing Cloth Menstrual Pads 3 hrs- Laurel Park, VA - Ok, so I've got to ask. What exactly are postpartum pads for..? I'm due in January and I have a feeling people aren't telling me about something that happens to your body after childbirth. Is it that you can't hold your pee very well or is it blood?

Even the one I passed, which was fucking massive, just required that we keep an eye out to make sure it didn’t happen again. If it does, talk to your doctor. Take a pain killer half an hour before nursing. Because YES - your uterus is contracting after you give birth, to get back to its original size, and nursing causes much stronger contractions. Taking nursing-safe painkillers won’t prevent the pain, but it will reduce it.  Buy disposable underwear for the first few days after birth. They will get VERY dirty. Or use your ratty old pairs that you’re ready to get rid of. Double up on pads - line them all the way up your ass-crack. I am so serious. And wear dark pants. Pee in the shower. You do NOT want to wipe down there right after birth because ow. Peeing in the shower lets you just rinse afterwards. Especially if you’ve had stitches, peeing in the shower, with the shower-head rinsing AS you go, keeps stinging to a minimum. And fuck everyone else - keep on peeing in the shower until you feel ready to move back to toilet paper. Middle of the night and need to pee? Get your pants off - get in the shower and just go. This is just a few things, but PLEASE feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions about ANYTHING childbirth/pregnancy/nursing related. I have four incredible kids. I’ve done it all - c-section, vacuume birth, episiotimy, stitches, with an epidural, without an epidural. I’m here. ….I know I keep reblogging this but people keep adding super important information. I feel like no one tells women this stuff because if a woman was even a little on the fence about having a baby before this would kinda make them run for the damn hills. …..you are correct, typing. 300% EXTRA SURE I’M NOT HAVING BABIES.  peri bottles, witch hazel or anti-pain anticeptic spray are your friends. Also passing large clots after birth is a WARNING SIGN. Bigger than a half dollar is a sign that you have not passed your entire placenta (this is most common in hospital vaginal births where the mother is not allowed to naturally birth the placenta and instead has it ripped out by the doctor) if there is any placenta left in your uterus you can get extremely ill. This happened to both myself and my mother in law WOW I didn’t know any of this and I’m terrified of what more I’m unaware of about my own body :( Honestly when will we fucking abolish this taboo about the female body… I had pretty great sex ed in school (lots of contraceptive information, and totally acknowledged that teenagers might have sex) and all of this is news to me. And, as a 28-year-old person with a uterus, I’m extremely appalled I’m just learning this. Long, but very important information, even for those who don’t plan to have children, because you will almost certainly know someone who will, and you might be able to to help them. Or at least increase your level of empathy for them. …HOLY HELL. REBLOG TO SAVE A LIFE, SERIOUSLY. people loooove to make out like pregnancy and childbirth are this beautiful thing that a woman’s body is made to do, and leave out all this incredibly important and scary info. the healthcare system fails women in so so many ways, especially around sexual and reproductive health, and it needs to stop. What the fuck first of allSecond Idk if having a kid is worth this now.
