With Ds#1, it seemed to go on forever as well, it stopped somewhere right before the 6 weeks were up, so I keep waiting for that to repeat itself now.
On the TMI end of things, the panty liners are giving me a rash, help? I had the brilliant idea to put diaper rash creme on it today, wonder if it will help.
I'd keep the appt, if nothing else to let them know what's going on with you.
Liners give me a rash, too. Do any health food stores near you stock cloth pads? Or just an organic cotton liner would probably help.
And, yes, I've used diaper creme on myself. It works!
My dd will be 6 weeks Thursday and I JUST STOPPED this weekend. (TMI) Its still there, just not pink or red or anything, more pale yellow and has the same... ahem.. scent.:
Kelly, mama to DD : (3-30-06) and DS 7/28/09) ....and gummi, due 3-30-13! (large sch....)
Definitely get some cloth pads or organic disposable pads at least. I wore a disposable pad over the weekend and started getting itchy the next day. I went right back to my cloth ones (I made them myself out of DH's worn out flannel work shirts!)
Hope it goes away soon. And mine with it! LOL

My midwife told me that it's probably my bodies way of telling me I am doing a little too much during the day.
I'd never heard about the increase around day 10-14...I wonder if that's because women are starting to feel better and start doing too much around that time, or if it's something physiologic...? Interesting.
I don't really mind, but I wouldn't mind if it quit either. I *liked* not having a period for 10+ months
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
