I seem to remember it was a good 5-6 weeks before I completely stopped bleeding after Bryan Luke's birth.

Are you on iron supplements for the anemia? Eat lots of dark green stuff too!

Yes it's normal after birth. I'm sorry. It's such a horrible reminder

It's just like live birth. It's postpartum bleeding. You can bleed/spot for 6 weeks. (((hugs)))

what has been said

in fact you can go from bleeding to spotting to bleeding again - can take anywhere from 4 - 8 weeks

Thanks. No, the iron suppliments make me sick. It seems like its getting lighter though. I thought because Alivia was born so early that maybe the bleeding would be less. It really is a painful reminder.

I know Honey...it's tough. I started leaking colostrum for the first time 3 weeks after Lucy was born. I didn't expect it to be so emotionally painful and scary. Every time we see these things it reminds us that we don't have our babies. I'm sorry for the pain you're experiencing.
