Increase in lochia at 9/ 10 days pp?
Has anyone else experienced this?

My stomach/ abdomen has been really tender since yesterday afternoon. I have also noticed an increase in lochia, and it's back to a brownish red when it had been really light and, I thought, tapering off. I did google it and everything said that if you soak a pad in an hour, it needs to be checked out. Mine isn't that bad, it's just worse than it was a few days ago. I know flow can fluctuate but is this normal? I don't remember this from my other births.

I know it could also mean that I'm doing too much too soon but I really don't think that's it. I've tried to relax and rest, but I do have 4 other kids... I guess I could try harder, which should be easy with DH going back to work tomorrow and us starting up school again LOL

OK, good to know. I actually had none overnight... so I guess it's gone for now. Today DH is back to work and I have other things to attend to, ya know? Hoping it stays away for good now.

Thanks :)
