I am 8 weeks postpartum. My bleeding stayed pretty consistent for the first 6 weeks, came and went a little from 6-7 weeks, and then I haven't seen any bleeding since 7 weeks. A few minutes ago (sorry if TMI) I had a bowel movement and then when I wiped, there was bright red blood. Not a lot- it wasn't dripping in the toilet or anything, just when I wiped. I've read that lochia is considered normal for the first 56 days and I'm 57 days postpartum today. I'm guessing since it's only one day later it's still considered normal, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
My first thought is that it was the return of AF, but I think there would be more blood if that was the case, plus it seems pretty early considering I'm EBF on demand.
