  • I didn't have a c-section but I've learned that if I am concerned enough to wonder if I should go to the doc, I ought to go.

    Even if it's nothing, you'll be eased.

    And if it is something, you'll be healed.

  • Ask your doctor if you are concerned, but I'm pretty sure that is normal.

  • I had a c section also with my first and seemed to bleed a lot. My sisters said this to me and I will say it to you now....you are probably doing too much. Standing at the sink washing dishes and sitting on the couch is too much. Lie down on the couch if you can or in bed is better for two days and see if you are better. Try to rest!!! Do follow up with your doctor though. :) Good luck...

  • I bled on and off for 6 weeks with my son. Some days there was a lot of blood and some days there was none at all. If you're bleeding like a heavy period nonstop, then I would call the doc. And I had that slimy bloody stuff the whole 6 weeks.
