Hi May Mamas!
just a question, wondering if anyone has much thoughts on this....
i am at 6 weeks PP tomorrow. i didnt loose much blood during birth, and by 2 week my bleeding significantly dropped off. by about 3.5 weeks i wasnt bleeding at all, except for occasional spotting. this was my first birth.
last weekend my parents came to visit us (and by us i mean they really came to see their grandchild), and on the day that they left i had bright red blood in the morning. it is always just a little stressful to me when they, or my partners parents come to visit. my mom is super helpful around the house, there has just always been some tension between us.
i rested for that day and bleeding subsided.
now, this morning, thursday, i have red bleeding again. we had busy days on tuesday and wednesday, a little bit of family stress last night, but none of this seems too busy or major in comparison to before baby. i also got very little sleep last night, due to LO's frequent night nursing.
so, today im doing my best to keep my butt on the couch. this is hard for me, but i know increased bleeding is the sign to chill out. just curious if a tiny bit of stress or increased sleep loss can really make me bleed more? could it be a sign of something problematic? my hemoglobin is good, but i am very tired.
this is all probably normal, i need to rest more even though i feel ready to be out and about, but i just wanted to share and see if any one has experience with this and any thoughts.
thanks in advance! lis
