i had my second c/s almost a month ago after a TOL and am having some issues i dont recall from my first.
first...i have tenderness in the area all around my belly button. its tender to the touch and also when i sit in blue jeans. is this normal?
second...my lochia had gotten to clear and is now bright red again with clots. i did call the dr about this and they said its because im nursing (nursed with #1 too and this didnt happen). does one usually bleed more with subsequent births/cesareans? is it really normal for the lochia to cycle over again?

Thank you for the replies, they are reassuring.
I am sure that I had been doing way more than I should be. I have my older child plus 2 stepkiddos and a dp who is a lot of work just by himself, lol. We also cloth diaper so there is no avoiding the laundry! I've started drinking raspberry leaf tea and taking some homeopathics and the bleeding has slowed down a lot. Ive also started echinachea and probiotics in case there is an infection somewhere.
I do have a chiropractor, and Im looking forward to going in a few weeks. My chiro does such a wonderful job
