  • lol- yes but let me tell u- its not always true- my last pregnancy after my c section i only bled for like 2 or 3 weeks-and the heavy bleeding stopped after the first week and after that it was mostly like a pink discharge that i was able to control with pantyliners- so dont stress too much- how long has it been since uve had ur baby?

  • I bled for only 4 weeks :) I had to get Alex to buy pads though. I stole a bunch from the hospital but he had to buy me more haha! :)

  • Yes. It's true. And they say no sex for six weeks. I only made it four. :P

  • Well Im 17 & hes coming out ne time now. I knew from the beginning that was gonna happen, I kinda figured that would happen since u got 9 months of blood held up there. Plus ur either getting cut or ripped. The part that I'm unpset about is the no sex. Its hurt 2 much 2 do it 4 the past couple months so it seems ike its even longer plus ur fat so it feels strange being that close 2 some1 else. Idk... good luck!! Everything wil be ok.

  • don't buy them too soon....if you have an emergency c section then you only bleed a week or so... or at least that was all i bled

  • And sometimes - the hospital will provide you will a couple of packs of those "Super Duper Extra Long Extra Thick Extra Absorbent Maxi Pads"... feels like you've got a twin sized mattress in your underwear. I just had to buy bigger granny panties to accomodate the mattress.After a couple of weeks it went to being more like a period, so I could use regular pads.
