  • It is probably your period returning. I got mine at 5-6 weeks each time. How old is your baby?

  • It could be that you started your period. Just give your OB a call and see what they think.

  • The things you should look for are extreme bleeding, filling more than one heavy pad per hour or big clots the size of a large grape. It is normal for it to be heavier than your periods before pregnancy, but not more than a big pad an hour.

  • I would call your OB to make sure, but I am sure it is fine. Just make sure to look for the heavy bleeding and large clots. Good luck! Congratulations on your LO.
