So I had my daughter 4 weeks ago, and the past week or so I've been getting these horrible headaches that not even tylonel can relieve at all. Also my bleeding had lightened a ton, to where I was just using a panty liner but now it is real heavy again and I've been reading online about symptoms for things but idk if these can just be normal? I don't have the other symptoms they list... I am also having sharp upper abdominal pains.
when I had my son in 2010 I was put on antibiotics cause they said part of the placenta must not have come out, I mentioned it to the ob I had this time and she said everything was normal from the placenta report, I don't want to seem paranoid but should I make an appt Monday?

If it gets worse then I would go in to be honest. I'd rather know that it wasn't an emergency than find out the hard way. ^^

I was bleeding for 6 weeks after my 2nd baby and it was on and off like it was never going to go away. But if you are having sharp ab pains then you should schedule an appt. do you have ins? Because some ins have nurse lines where you can call And talk to or you can go to an emergency clinic which would not be as expensive as ER.

Lucky! I bled for 8 weeks after my son and then my cycle started up like normal. >.< I thought it would never end D:

But yeah, I agree with the nurses line. I forgot about those xD
