  • My periods are EXTREMELY heavy now that I had my son 11 months ago. They used to be normal b4 i got pregnant. There are times though my period is almost non existant during that time of the month too. its strange but its just your hormones adjusting. Thats what the dr told me

  • My period changed after my first son too. I am still waiting to see what will happen this time around, but my guess is that it will probably be different this time around too.

  • Quite normal. In fact..if it's taking a few hours to soak through, it's not all that heavy, comparatively speaking. Worry if you're going through one of those tampons an hour.
