If you've had a c section I have a question.

I need some help/advice.

2 weeks ago I gave birth via emergency c section. I lost a lot of blood and also had to have 2 blood transfusions and due to me being severely anemic I tend to panic whenever I lose blood because I know my body is low to begin with. So, I need some advice as to whether what I'm experiencing is normal or a cause for concern..

After my c section I bled for about 2-3 days then it stopped. Now, 2 weeks later it has came back very heavy and bright red. I've been heavily bleeding for about 24 hours now.

Should I go to the ER? Call my obgyn in the morning? Or just rest and wait for it to stop? Anyone been through this? Is this normal after a c section?

I bled heavily off and on for about 5 weeks after both of mine.

If you feel like it's a concern, talk to Dr.

After mine, I bled heavily for a few days afterwards, then I continued on a normal cycle. So, I didn't experience this.

Have you been more active than usual?

After my twins, my mom came to help and my dh went to the mall for a bit to have supper and by that time, almost 2 weeks out, I had very light bleeding but after walking the mall for about an hour, I started bleeding heavily. I took it easy for a few days after that.

It coukd be just post partum bleeding or your cycle resetting. But just to be safe, if you have one, call the nurse line and see what they say. If not call your ob/gym now or in the morning.
