  • It's not normal. You should give the office a call and see what they say.

  • this is normal after having my youngest I stopped for a day, but started bleeding again after lifting the baby seat if you are doing lifting more than the baby it can cause you to bleed again. You normally bleed from 4-8 weeks

  • like mommy5409 said, if you did something extra physical, this can cause the bleeding to start up again. you still need to take it easy. let your body heal. in china, new moms don't do anything for a whole month! the moms and moms in law do everything.

  • It could be from overexerting yourself. Or it could be your period. I started my period at 5 weeks post-partum with both of mine (one of them exclusively breastfed). I would go ahead and call the doctor to have it checked just in case, though. It might be nothing, but then it might be something.
