    How long did you bleed for after birth?
    I know everyones diffo but I'm just wondering what I may have in store!
    Also, did you have a vaginal birth or csection?

    See at the moment I've been bleeding for 2 weeks 5 days.
    Its been quite light (Well in comparison to what I had expected & been told) Some days I'm so light I think that I'm at the end of it.. Then BOOM! Its back again :(

    Like this morning it was super light, and brown (Like the last day of your period sorta thing!) And then within about an hour I was bleeding red blood again?

    So yeah..
    How long did you bleed?
    What type of birth did you have?
    Were you heavy/light, etc?
    And how long after you stopped bleeding did you get your first period?

    Sorry for the TMI ladies xx

    I was about 5 weeks post c section. Mine would vary depending on how active I was that day, the more active, the more I had.

    Hey Louise,

    My bleeding tailed off a little after 2 weeks, but a heavy flow returned after 3 weeks - I think I was doing too much though to be honest. It finally stopped at about 4.5 weeks.

    I had a failed VB / failed ventouse arrempts / emergency c sect.

    JJ was 10 weeks yesterday...still no sign of my first period! I have had odd cramp, but that's it really!

    How long did you bleed? about 10 days
    What type of birth did you have? Normal vaginal delivery, no tears or grazes
    Were you heavy/light, etc? Heavy for a few days then like a normal period
    And how long after you stopped bleeding did you get your first period? James was 8 weeks and I got period just as I stopped expressing 100% of feeds.

    Your first period will depend on if you BF or not as well.

    xxxx

    Baby no.1 I bled for about 3 weeks, baby no.2 I bled for just 5 days!! I then had my 1st period 6 weeks later and bled for 4 weeks which was the rest coming out (I had no idea this could happen!)

    Both vaginal deliveries, baby no.1 was an episiotamy and forceps delivery with 2 tears, baby no.2 no tears and no assistance.

    Heavy with both until it stopped but the 4 weeks with baby no.2 i'd say were medium before stopping.

    !st period came roughly 6 weeks post birth with both babies.

    I bled for two weeks very heavily then off and on for six weeks after that. I had an assisted birth with ventouse, forceps and an episiotomy ended up with 30 stitches so not surprised I bled for a while.

    Normal period came when Toby was five months as I bf'd until he was diagnosed as lactose intolerant at 7 weeks old.

    Hope you heal quickly x

    How long did you bleed? 3 weeks
    What type of birth did you have? Vaginal
    Were you heavy/light, etc? It varied. The first week was super heavy. The second week it tailed off, but then the third it went back to heavy and then stopped again.
    And how long after you stopped bleeding did you get your first period? I haven't had a period yet, but that is probably because I'm breastfeeding.
