Yes, this has happened to me before, and for me it was all stress.  Sounds like it is for you too!  Stress can wreak a heckuva lot of havoc on our bodies, even when it doesn’t seem like it is.  One way to tell that you’re really stressed is if your period is all wonky.  I’ve had ones where it will come and go over 7-8 days, like bleeding for a day and then not, then again, etc. Total stress!  

Wedding planning can be rough, especially when you’re only two weeks out!  Maybe take some walks, hot baths, see a movie…things to get your mind off the Big Day.  It will be awesome regardless of what happens!  🙂

Sounds like stress…

Our bodies are pretty in-tune with what is going on with us emotionally … and that plays havoc with our hormones.

My period was always 28 Days like clockwork…

UNLESS I had a big thing stressing me out on the calendar… including my Wedding.

In which case it could be all over the map…

As you described… missed entirely… or came 2x in one month.

(Lets hope that last one isn’t in store for you with the Wedding & Honeymoon just on the Horizon)

*fingers crossed*

Stress totally does that to your period. I’m on birth control and I was recently very sick (physical stress). I started spotting/having a light period  2 weeks after my last period up until 2 days before my next period was to start, then it stoped, and my period started again on time 2 days later and it was pretty heavy for me. I went to the doctor for my illness (missed 2 whole weeks of work) and she told me that the weird period stuff was pretty normal and it was most likely the physical stress because ‘our hormones, they’re crazy’. It’s probably just the wedding craziness, and hopefully your next period will be normal.
