  • well your post postpartum bleeding could have stopped and now it's your period. that's a possibility.

  • If this is blood from your vagina... then yes, it's normal. I think I bled worse & longer from my Csections than I did from my vaginal delivery. But, I don't think it should be getting worse --- that would of concern to me.

    If you're bleeding from your incision, though --- no, something's not right there.

  • breastfeeding doesn't entirely eliminate the possibility of a period. you could very well have your period right now. i only had vaginal deliveries but got my period at the 6-8 week mark with both of them and neither were 'typical' periods. wait and see if it goes away in about a week if it does then I think you have your answer. congrats on the new baby!
