After pregnancy period?

Ok so before I got prego my periods lasted about 4 days and were SUPER heavy. My first period after I had my baby last 11 days, ridiculous, but it was kinda light. This is my 2nd period since I had my baby it's been about 3 days now, but it's so light that I don't even need a tampon or a pad, I can use a panty liner and it will last more than half the day. Is this normal? I mean don't get me wrong i'm not complaining, lol, just want to be sure that everythings ok. Anyone have any insight?

  • Your whole cycle can be messed up for 10months after giving birth. My midwife said: "it will take you 10months of pregnancy to have your baby, but it will also take you about 10months to get -unpregnant- again"... means: your body needs some time to get back to the old cycle. OR if you get lucky, you will keep the light period you have right now!...

  • It can take up to a 6 months to a year my doctor told me for your periods to get back to normal. Count your blessings while you have them!! LOL
