Nasty question about period after pregnancy... (sorry tmi)

OK, I had my baby three months ago and only breastfed for about a week after I had him. I just started my period back for the first time last night and it was super heavy (it never was heavy at all before) and there were prettt big hard blood clots. It freaked me out and I didnt know if it was abnormal because it took three months to start back and because it is so heavy. Sorry WAY tmi but I am worried. Thank you!

  • Mine was too and I called my mom because it was so heavy I was a bit nervous. She said hers were like that too. It was just the one that was very heavy and then they returned ot normal.
