How is your pp bleeding?
with dd I bled/spotted for 10 weeks. blech.
with ds I bled for few days and I thought I was almost done and got off lucky this time.
Then about 4-5 days ago it was back and heavy. the m/ws are not concerned but said I was doing too much, so to rest.
now I've been sitting on my arse for 5 days and it's still here. anyone have experience with this?
I hate wearing underwear and pads 24/7- it is both mentally and physically irritating. :
Any herbs, etc I can take to help?
With dd1 I bled for about 4 weeks but didn't have any clumps/clots (but they do scrape things out pretty well with a c/s so that may have played a part). With dd2's vbac I bled for 6-7 weeks again with very little clotting. But the afterpains were wicked.
This time I bled heavily for two days with giant clots. Just crazy big. And although the lochia has been pretty light since day two I'm still passing smallish clots almost every bathroom visit. I don't have a fever and my providers aren't worried, and overall my flow is so much lighter than with my other births I can't complain! Part of me wonders if the really fast/intense nature of the delivery is continuing into a sort of fast recovery?

I was expecting this Lochia thing to be different from period bleeding, but I am not noticing any difference other than the length of bleeding.
