Pregnancy changes everything! Your priorities change, your interests change, and your body changes both inside and out. I have my two beautiful yet ornery children to thank for my awful monthly visitor. Like I said, pregnancy changes your body both INSIDE and OUT! Sure my pants do not fit the same; could be from the cookies I find myself eating after dinner though. However, my period has changed since having children and for awhile it really controlled what I did and what I wore during those 10 days (YES TEN! Lucky me!).
I haven't really talked about this experience when it comes to my postpartum - 18 months later but it is time. Growing up I had really bad periods, super heavy, long and horrible cramps. I remember my gynecologist telling me that once I had a child my "insides" would settle down. It was one of the things I was actually looking forward too!! Well...she was wrong! SO WRONG! Since having children my periods have become a very challenging time of the month. Before I started using U by Kotex products I was always worried about having leaks while in public. I would plan my outfits by the time of the month and would even find ways to get out of working out or swimming!
Thankfully U by Kotex has all kinds of products that have really helped me deal with the changes in my body since having children. First, check out the great packaging! I tell you what...when I am in my 10 days of "Bleeding Out" (yes, that is what I tell my husband every month) these bright and colorful packaging kind of brighten up my day. Second, the 3D Capture Core in the U by Kotex pads come in all of the sizes. Personally when I want to feel safe and protected while enjoying my pretty spring and summer sundresses I use the Overnight size. However, on the lighter days I simply grab a smaller version of the 3D Capture Core.
Summer has finally decided to stick around which means I am breaking out the sundresses for work! I love this time of the year. No more dress pants! WOOHOO!! Last summer I was never confident enough to wear my pretty dresses during that time of the month but this summer I have no worries. I have come to the conclusion that I will just have to deal with this "aftershock" of pregnancy and it is what it is.
To make this White statement all summer long find a great white dress that is can be dressed up or down. I personally love this lace over lay white dress because I know that with some jewelry and dressier sandals I can make this dress perfect for a date night or even a cocktail party but I can also throw it on with some flip flops and head to the park! It is so comfortable and the details are perfect! Even if I find myself on my period when I need or want to wear this dress I just add my U by Kotex to my wardrobe necessities! Simple fix!
