Have you had it yet? I'm fairly certain that's what this is. It started on the 21st, and that was 5 weeks 1 day since my c/s.

How was your flow? Mine was medium the first day, light the second day, but now I'm on the 4th day of super heavy bleeding. This is honestly heavier than any of my PP bleeding was. (But I think my PP bleeding is not the norm, as it was light with both girls) Is it normal to have a very heavy period as your first post baby?

And what about tampons? Are they OK to use? I had to use one today as I had a job interview and I didn't want to feel like a dang faucet while I was in there. I will be 6 weeks PP tomorrow.

I certainly didn't miss this!

I'm 7wks PP today and haven't started yet.

I think tampons are fine to use, especially since you had a C/S. I think my period after DS1 was pretty heavy. I haven't been able to wear tampons comfortably since having him though, it sucks!

the first postpartum period can be pretty heavy. I couldnt use a tampon for about 9 months after DS1 but i had pretty extensive tearing/scar tissue. As long as it was comfortable I think youre ok

Nope, but then again, I'm still having PP bleeding too (but I'm also only 4.5 weeks out).

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

I just finished mine yesterday. It started with like 2 days of spotting. It was so heavy for almost 3 days! Way heavier than PP bleeding. I tampons day 4 and 5 and it was fine. I sure didn't miss it! Lol.
