  • the first time I got my period post partum it was very heavy. If you got your 6 week checkup and everything was fine I wouldn't worry about anything.

  • Well when I had my first baby I asked the nurse when the bleeding would stop. Her answer was as soon as you give birth you get the period from hell it could last up to 10 wks.
