ok i tried googling this but didn't really get an answer. postpartum period

i gave birth 3 weeks ago. it was an ideal, complication free vaginal birth. i only bled for about a week afterward and then it was just normal blood free mucus discharge for another week. well today i started bleeding lightly like my normal period. it feels like my period and it smells like period blood which smells different from postpartum blood. all the websites i went to say women normally get a period after 4 it possible mine came a week early?

  • Every woman is different - I didn't get my first period until about 9 months after. Granted, I was BFing fulltime.
