Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

Ok, so it's been 18 days and I am still not done bleeding here. I am going mental and I just want to go workout. I have been very good about doing nearly nothing, but I am getting to the end of my rope.

My only real activity is a 15-20minute, frumpy mama shuffle around the block just to get some sun so I don't feel like a freakin' vampire.

When did you all stop bleeding? Any tips (homeopathy et al.)?

thanks

Re: Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

I hate to depress you more....but I went 8-12 weeks with each one of mine...even had to go to my follow up appt with it on a couple of occasions.....sorry! You should still be able to get some light exercise if you feel up to it. Did the doctor tell you not to?

Re: Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

With my first I bled about 9 weeks and was still bleeding when I went in for my 6 week check up. 2nd one, still bleeding at 6 week check up, I think I stopped at about 7 weeks. 3rd I was nursing so I think I bled like 3 weeks, and the same with my 4th. I think I will probably do the same with this one as I will be nursing!

My other little blessings I did not carry, so none with them.

Hugs mama!!!

Re: Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

Sorry to tell you, but I went about 4 1/2 weeks (and I'm breastfeeding), then started up again briefly around 6 weeks. It does slow down a lot towards the end, though, if that's any consolation!

Re: Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

I think I went 4-6 wks with my first. Im now 2 wks pp and still having a bit, though it is light enough that I only have to wear a thin pad.

Re: Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

18 days huh?

I know it sucks.. but I gotta laugh.. just a little..

I bled nonstop for 6 months. That was fun!

But let me explain.. I also had a IUD placed at 7weeks PP. But at that point I was still bleeding anyway.

What's even more funny is I had such a bad Blood loss right after having miranda that they wanted to do a Transfusion.. so tell me how i continued to bleed for 6 more months is a Mystery. lol

Don't worry.. it will end shortly.. they say around 4-6 weeks.. it hasn't even been 4 weeks yet. you won't bleed forever is what i'm saying.

Sorry, mama, I was just stopping bleeding at my 6 week checkup. And then, I just started my period and it hasn't even been 2 weeks since that! Ugh. Sometimes being a girl sucks.

With my first I stopped bleeding at 6 weeks and 3 days. With my 2nd and third it was at 4weeks, but then AF showed every 2-3 weeks until they were 3months old.

Re: Postpartum Bleeding... Enough already.

With my first, i bled steady for 12 weeks. (i blame it on the pitocin induction ****ing up my body though).

2nd i bled for about 5 wks. And w/ this one (only 2 wks now) i bled for a week, and i've basicly stopped w/ occasional spurts here and there.
