    I noticed after my bath this morning that I have started bleeding again. It's not very heavy and is clean fresh blood so I am not too worried but am a little concerned.

    I stopped bleeding 2 weeks after giving birth and haven't had anything since.

    Could this be my first period (I am bottle feeding) or is it normal to have another slight bleed almost 2 weeks later.

    Maybe it's your period.. they come back quicker if you're bottle feeding, i'm the same as you and stopped bleeding about 2 weeks after the birth, then had a period about 2/3 weeks after that.

    yes it cud be a period hun..but still watch for any big clots/heavy bleeding like a full pad in an hour..cuz that happend to me i stopped the post birth bleed then 2 weeks later i had "period bleeding" that suddenly started pouring - i was sat on the loo while OH got me a hand towle to use in knickers until we got to hospital it was that bad. (like a river :puke: )

    but thankfully i was okay it was just a large PV bleed possibly because i had such a large open raw area inside as chirstopher was 10.14.5oz and obviously had a large placenta.

    but im sure ur just having a periosd thay do come back very quick if ur not BF.

    I thought i had stopped bleeding after three weeks then on week four woke up to a puddle in the bed :puke: . MW had warned me this might happen.
    Came on my period at six weeks.
    Hope this helps
