Sorry, this is probably way too much information... But it's been more than 4 weeks and I'm still bleeding. It had started to slow down and gone a darker, brownish colour about a week ago, but the last few days I'm back to bright red and period heaviness. Ugh. Will it ever stop???
I know what you mean- I thought it would never end lol mine stopped after about 6-7 weeks so hopefully not too much longer for you smile
Felt like forever, sometimes it just takes a while sad
The on/off again bleeding is ok but if you get to 6 weeks + and are still concerned bring it up with your doctor. I had to go to 2 different docs to get someone to pay attention to my concern and finally someone listened, an ultrasound revealed I had 2cm x 1.5cm piece of placenta as well as membranes left over.
What you have sounds normal at the moment but if it starts worrying you get it checked
I still feel quite sore down there too... When did you guys stop feeling like all your muscles were strained?
Skubala - oh, that makes me so angry!! Why don't medical people actually -listen-? It's so high-handed to just assume that we don't know our own bodies well enough to know when something's wrong. What an awful thing to have to go through while caring for a newborn.
8 weeks with my second, and again I went on the pill to stop the bleeding.
