I am 3 weeks pp. I have not been bleeding or even spotting since Monday. I quit bleeding a bit after a week after dd was born, I spotted for a a few days and then since Monday I haven't had to even wear a pantyliner. Today I started bleeding again. It's bright red and there were a few tiny clots in it. Dd goes anywhere from 4-6 hours between nursing at night and has almost from day one. My midwife told me that I oculd ovulate very soon because of this, but it's too early to be a period, right? Does bleeding just start up again?

My bleeding stopped more than once already and is back again. My mid-wife told me this is normal. I was actually about to write her an email about the latest. I am 6 weeks post partem tommorow and my bleeding is back and I am having to wear at least a liner for it and it is bright red.<br><br>
I know that it does start and stop and that is very normal. I was told clots are okay so long as they are not golf ball sized. I had a pretty big one early on so you are not alone on that either.<br><br>
At three weeks I would expect it to come back after stopping at least a little bit if not alot. 3 weeks doesn't seem like very long seeing as it can take six weeks or more to stop completely.<br><br>
I don't know about the ovulating thing, seems like that is different for everyone. Maybe someone else here knows?

This happened to me too -- my bleeding stopped and then started up again -- bright red -- twice. My MW said it was normal too.

This keeps happening to me also. I've not needed a pad since about 3 weeks, but every few days I'll have blood when I wipe. At my 6w pp visit I was spotting & the mw said my uterus hadn't totally involuted (probably because Cole was big). In fact, I bled again yesterday. It's kinda annoying, LOL.

Is your bleeding accompanied with cramps? This is happening to me on and off bleeding but also crampy feelings, wondering if this is normal?

Yes, everytime I would start bleeding again, my afterpains would come back. Especially when breastfeeding.
