I can't remember how it went with my son, but this time around, I seem to be a lot more "gushy" with the postpartum bleeding. I had my daughter via c-section 9 days ago and still am passing a few clots (usually no bigger than a quarter) daily, and also experience several gushes of blood-- it almost feels like I'm peeing myself without the peeing sensation-- just liquid coming out. This usually happens when I stand up, or occasionally when I'm lying flat on my back. When it happens, I have to immediately go change my pad because it's soaked through. The blood is still bright red, but usually quite liquid-y. It happens 3-4 times a day. I feel fine, keep hydrated, etc. I think they said I lost 500mL of blood during the c-section, so I don't think there was any particular cause during surgery for anything. Does this sound normal, or should I bring it up with a midwife?
