  • thats not your period,its the bleeding from your pregnancy. You can bleed for up to 6 wks after birth

  • ok, if you gave birth a week and a half ago, that wasn't a period, that was after birth bleeding. we all do it, even if we have a c-section. Its our body going back to normal. And its completely normal for it to stop and start again. You should get your actual period back until 6 weeks after birth.

  • Didn't your OB explain to you about the bleeding you'd experience after you give birth??

  • I agree with ever one else. You just had twines 11/2 weeks ago? It is not your period. It is the bleeding after you had you babies. Didn't anyone else tell you about this part of pregnancy? Your mom ,a friend, aunt, your doctors?

  • It wasn't your period, it's your post-partum bleeding, and it can come & go for 6 weeks, or more or less. If it stops them comes back bright red, that's a sign you're overdoing things and you need to sit & rest, take it easy. If it's the same as it was, it means you just got a short reprieve. But what you're experiencing is pretty normal for just having a baby (or in your case 2 babies) less than 2 weeks ago!
