No, the bleeding is not from a hemorrhoid.
I am resting as much as a person could with a baby. I have only gone to midwife and pediatrician appointments since the birth. No stairs in my house. DH has taken over all the housework, cooking, and errands. All I do is nurse, change diapers, surf the internet when DS is sleeping. Geez...I'd really like to start being more active! I swear...I actually want to do housework at this point because it just feels weird to not do it!
I probably don't eat enough greens; I'll try eating more. My iron levels were tested last week and are fine. I have some iron pills though...is it ok and necessary to take them when I know my iron levels are fine? I have been drinking RRL tea for a week now. Is once a day enough?
I am thinking now that this has something to do with hormones. I read something about how if your hormones aren't balanced it can keep you at the "bleeding threshold". I've also been having other symptoms since the birth that I read can be from a hormonal imbalance. I have really dry skin, a rash on my chest and neck that comes and goes, really bad memory problems, and having some PPD. One of my midwives suggested using progesterone cream for the PPD. I did it for about a week, then I guess DH put it in the closet while cleaning and I forgot about it! I remembered it today, so I'm going to start using that again. Maybe it will help.
