So so sorry about the news of your brother. 


Have you been on your feet a lot the past day? That could be it. Just take it easy and try even though I am sure it is hard to rest, sleep, and relax as much as you can.

My midwife mention that at about day 11 pp there could be a lot more blood from where the placenta was attached. Could be stress too. Sorry to hear about your brother! Take time to rest!

I am so sorry for your loss!


My bleeding stopped a little before 2 weeks PP, stayed gone for 2-3 days, and then around 14 days PP it came back redder than ever, and pretty heavy (not as bad as AF though) and finally tapered off around 5 weeks PP.  It would also slow down until I had a bowel movement and then pick up again.  This scared the bejeezus out of me, but Doc. Google said it was pretty normal.
