Upon inspection of the placenta and membranes, my midwife thought there may be a tiny piece of the membrane that hadn't come out yet, but wasn't sure.<br><br>
My bleeding started to ease up about 3 days PP, but it has now (day 5 postpartum) gotten heavier and my uterus is still the same size as it was 2 days ago. Thee midwives just left from the home visit and are looking into getting me to an ultrasound this afternoon to check things out, and I'm a little worried.<br><br>
I have been off my feet completely for all 5 days, just up to use the bathroom and take baths, my DS is breastfed and nurses constantly. I'm even drinking RRLT for good measure.<br><br>
What do they do if they find something?

I had retained placenta twice. One time it was expelled with a course of oral methergin. The second time I had it removed via D&C.
