    Title says it really.
    Started bleeding way more, passing a few clots (small) and getting period pain. I feel like this is too early though?! I'm pumping aswell so o feel cheated if It is my period haha

    I would have thought that was too early hun. But then I bled for 6 weeks had one week off and think I got my real period on week 8? Big clots they say to phone though xx

    If you are passing large clots get checked out ASAP!
    However it is possible, my mum was surprised that I hadn't started getting periods again yet at 16weeks postpartum as she started after 4 weeks. Everybody is different, just make sure there arnt any complications going on
