So this is kind of a double question... First, my LO is 5.5 weeks. I had stopped bleeding at about 4 weeks, it had been slowly tapering off. Then a couple days ago I started bleeding bright red blood again, like a period amount. Seems to soon to actually BE my period though, especially since I am EBF my LO. Is this normal? I went for a rather long/hilly walk last weekend... could this have something to do with it? I don't have any real increase in pain or anything... should I start taking my iron pills again?
Now, part 2... my c-section incision is still not healed!! Like, the skin is still not healed. Most of it is except for one section. I do not have a fever and it doesn't seem overly red or inflamed but if I press it a certain way it oozes a bit of white/clear stuff. The doctor said this is just normal drainage... is it normal for some of the incision to not be totally closed?? I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday...
Any input would be MUCH appreciated as I don't know anyone in person who has had a c-section!!!! Thanks in advance guys!!
