You can measure your activity by your bleeding.
If it was resolving and then became red again, it means you were doing too much. 3 weeks is really soon to be on your feet a lot. I think that's why nursing is a natural part of healing. You have to sit down several times a day. It's a good idea to get a big glass of water and put your feet up, relax and enjoy your new little one. Don't try making up for that time by overdoing when your not nursing. Enjoy your Babymoon!
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow
For babies grow up, so much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby, 'cause babies don't keep!
|Postpartum vaginal bleeding (known as lochia) will occur for 2 to 6 weeks following delivery. Usually it is over within 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the woman. It is common for postpartum bleeding to stop and start again or to be characterized by intermittent spotting or bleeding.|
Why are you worried? Is it something in your intuition, or do you just feel it 'should' be done by now? When did your heavy bleeding stop? What do you feel is abnormal going on?
