Sorry maybe TMI - blood loss?

Hey girlies, just wondering if this sounds right to you but I'm still bleeding 3 weeks on from having my c section. It's prob the same heavyness as first day of period and is still fresh blood. The HV said to me on Sat if it gets like that then I could be doing too much but I feel fine in myself. Just dunno if it's normal to still be bleeding quite a bit 3 weeks later. Anyone else in the same boat? Xx :\?


  • I'm pretty much the same after my section. I asked the nurse that comes everyday (who informed me today that my wound looks infected again! Urgh) :roll:

    Anyway, I bled for about 2 1/2 weeks, it stopped for a few days and started again, TMI - heavy and fresh. The nurse said it might be a period as I'm bottle feeding now and she said just to keep an eye on the dates. I honestly didn't think I would get one this soon after birth, esp as I'm still recovering. It could be that?
  • Oh no! What a nightmare. I hope it's not too much of a set back for you. As for the bleeding, yes I suppose it could be a period already, just can't tell! took it really easy today anyway, just stayed in bed and nursed mathilda while my mum did some housework for me - lush!
