I am at 15 days and on my third 28 pad pack. I do not remember this lasting so long last time. I def don't remember the clear/yellow fluid that caused me to change my pad every 1/12 - 2 hours. What is that anyway? It has gone back to blood. Not bright red or fresh. more like the end of your period. maybe the end is near...<br><br>
i am taking alfalfa since day one Post/p for vit k for my breastmilk since we skipped the shot-i did the research and found so many more benefits for after birth-like helping with fluid retention.<br><br>
Alfalfa, with its deep root system, contains many essential nutrients including trace minerals, chlorophyll and vitamin K, a nutrient necessary for blood clotting. Many midwives advise drinking mild tasting alfalfa tea or taking alfalfa tablets during the last trimester of pregnancy to decrease postpartum bleeding or chance of hemorrhaging. Alfalfa also increases breast milk, as alfalfa hay is fed daily to milking goats and other dairy animals.
