Anyone still having it? I just cant seem to get it to stop, just when I think its done its not.

I know its totally normal to have it stop and start, but this is the 2nd time its gotten super heavy. I know activity can make it heavier, but Im just a little worried because I also have been put on BP meds cus my BP has gone up again since during pregnancy.

I have never had this kind of bleeding with any of my other pregnancies PP, so before I make the dreaded call to mt OB, just wondering if any of you are as well? I do have my 3 week PP chk up on Tues anyways.

I bled for 3 weeks this time and it was start and stop bleeding during the 3rd week. Sometimes heavy sometimes not. By week 4 it was just very very light spotting.

I have had it come and go, but not 'heavy' by my definition. It might merit that phone call.

I had a c-section but I'm still getting a bit of light bleed. This may sound naive but I had no idea there would be vaginal bleed with c-section, so I had actually removed all pads from my hospital bag when I left my house to make room for other stuff!

Yah it has calmed down so I am waiting for my OB 3 week chk up on tues unless it picks up again like it was.

Thats the fun thing about PP is you never really know what to expect, its like each pregnancy, it varies!.

I have even had my period start before at about 2 weeks PP, so yah ya just never know. thanks though for the thoughts.

I bled for two and a half weeks. The first two weeks were heavy and the last few days were very light. Then by the fourth week I had my cycle start, knew this because of the period cramos. Those four weeks were not fun.
