I have been pulling for about 5 weeks now and just got my period today. I was so surprised because I barely had any warning signs. I normally go through about 3 days of being very emotional, crying at everything...commercials, sappy movies, unsappy movies, pictures, you name it! I had only a few hours of this a couple days ago and yesterday I had a few abdominal pains that lasted only a few seconds. Then I woke up today and boom...flow arrived. For the last 2 years I got a day of brown discharge before my period but for the last 2 months I haven't gotten it. Normally the first 2 days of my period I get really bad cramps but I haven't gotten them so far, we will see. I'll let you know.
