9 weeks PP and random bleeding?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had my little guy 9 weeks ago, lochia completely stopped around 4 weeks. Had my 6 week check, everything looked great. A week later (7 weeks PP) I started bleeding red again. I assumed it was my period returning but I only bled red for a few days, never changed color and went away completely. Now I am 9 weeks PP and have been bleeding red for 5 days this time, It's not super heavy but definitely more then spotting. (Moderate flow maybe?) hasent changed color, there are a few very small clots starting today though. I feel completely fine otherwise. Maybe its my period returning this time? Baby is exclusively breasted on demand, he still wakes up several times to nurse at night so I am a little shocked that this could be my period returning already....Anyone else experiencing something similar?

I was 8 weeks on Monday and started bleeding red again but it isn't enough for more than a light pad and usually starts and stops often. I have had this pretty much the entire time though. I am battling mastitis and a UTI and have been for weeks so I just assumed it had to do with slowing down my healing.

When did your period return with your previous birth(s)?

Thanks for responding Talldarkeyes. UTI and Mastitis, you poor mama! I hope your resting and healing!

 

With my previous babies, I had no spotting or bleeding whatsoever after my lochia ended until my period returned when my babies were 5months old. The bleeding stopped later the same day I posted lol and hasen't started up again yet so who knows what that was lol
