  • Hi, I was just like this last week, I came on so heavy that i leaked when walking home from my sons playgroup(sorry if tmi). it took me totally by surprise. It lasted 2 days heavy and then 2 days normal. My son is also 7 weeks old. Its scarey how quick it comes back after giving birth and how you forget what it was like when you have not had one for 9 months.LOL.
  • Mine came back when lo was 19wk and the day b4 i was sick and headachey, then i too leaked if i didn't change every 2 hours, it was horrendous!!! Had my 2nd and was exactly the same. Get me a contraceptive that takes them away now!!! Wasn't anywhere near as bad after my 1st and 2nd babies as this time.
