At 2 weeks pp, I was pretty much done bleeding. I had light spotting for another week, but nothing requiring a pad. Now, I'm 5 weeks pp, and I started having some brown discharge yesterday. It was very light, like spotting, so I didn't think much of it. But then today it's a little heavier (still light, but needing a thin pad now) and it's redder. Is this normal? Please don't tell me I'm getting my period already! (I'm exclusively breast feeding) I don't have any cramps, no pain, and I hadn't had sex for a few days before this started. I have a call into my midwife, but I'm waiting for her to call back, so I thought I'd ask here. Has anyone had their lochia stop for a few weeks, then start again? If this is my first period, shouldn't I be getting my normal period cramps? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
