Ugh. Still bleeding! Anyone else?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm 5.5 weeks out and it seems like it's never going to end!!

I had a break for a day or two last week and then it geared right up again. Nothing crazy heavy, just enough to make me have to wear a pad instead of a liner. SO annoying! I'm not even really active. I have a mild bladder prolapse so I'm keeping it nice and lazy still.

I swear I was 100% done about 3 weeks pp with DS.

I hate pads! BOO!

4 weeks PP here and I have the same thing. It reallly slowed down to almost nothing then yesterday I had a big gush of red again - and I haven't been doing anything more strenuous than usual.

I'm still spotting 4 weeks postpartum, c-section.
And worse... TMI warning... I'm still getting a lot of hemorrhoids bleeding. Ugh.
Every trip to the bathroom is a potential surprise! what fun...

I am coming up on 5 weeks pp and have finally been comfortable enough the last couple of days to stop wearing a pad. I have had a couple of times since 2 weeks pp when I thought I was all done. I would have nothing for a couple of days and then I would start spotting again.

With my second I bled more and longer. My pp bleeding had stopped by 6 weeks but then I had another short bleed at about 8 weeks. I was told that this was the 6 week bleed and it is not uncommon in ebfing moms. It was definitely not a ppaf, I didn't have my menses return until 15 month pp.

With my first I bled for three months and had to use estrogen, my second was only for a couple days! and now I am on and off at three + weeks.

I just stopped. I'm at 6 weeks now. I thought it was going to last forever. I'm still wearing a liner because I don't quite trust it yet!

This exactly. With Dd it took seven weeks. I think because we lived up two flights of stairs with no elevator.

I ran out of stool softener and kept taking my iron-containing vitamins .. very bad idea. I think pushing the baby out hurt less than having a bm does! Ironically, wasn't even having a problem until I let myself get stopped up.

So can definitely commiserate.

This is me, only 7.5 weeks. I only bled with DD for about 10 days, and then the 6 week bleed. Oh then I got AF back at 9 weeks, I wouldn't be surprised if the other days bleeding was AF. I could EBF non-stop but there is no LAM for me it is way lame.....every other woman I know gets 6 months-I'm lucky if I get 6 weeks.
