I gave birth to my son 3 months ago (vaginally) and breastfed him for a little over six weeks. Last month I had my first period and it was nothing. There were no cramps and the bleeding was very light. This month I feel like I did right after I delivered. The cramps feel like I'm in labor again and the bleeding is so heavy that I keep having to change my overnight maxi pad every hour or so. Then, last night I realized I had passed a clot which I've never done except after the birth. I hate moving around because every time I do I can feel it coming out, almost like I'm peeing.
Is this normal after having a baby?
