  • It could possible be your period, but more likely is still from the birth. I would think I was finally done, and then it would start up again!

  • I bled for 6 weeks after my c-section with my 2nd daughter, so I never knew for sure when my period came because I bled on and off and if I walked too much or lifted too heavy I'd get some brighter red blood that would kind of gush out. I thought it would be over shortly after because the blood would turn black.. then sure enough more bright red blood came out. It's normal to bleed for up to 6 weeks or even longer I'm sure, but it's hard to tell if it's afterbirth or period!
