Do you think your period has returned?  You could give your midwive a call to be certain.

After I had my son I bled on and off for about 2 months.  Some days I would have nothing, others I would just spot and sometimes I would have a full blown flow.  I would say that it is normal.

It is normal. Most people bleed on and off for the first 6 weeks, sometimes longer. If you are worried though you could always ask your midwife.

I'm pretty sure it's normal. I don't remember really but I think it can come and go for 6 weeks and then it should stop.

 maybe its your period???

i say as long as it doesnt get super heavy or clotty it should be okay.

you might be over doing things or your period could have came already

It could be your period, but most likely it is from ever doing stuff, we feel fine and forget that we aren't really healed until 6 weeks.

ditto... it can be from simply breastfeeding or just being more active.  Like when I clean the house or take the kids to the park i start bleeding again.  It's extremely annoying because I have to keep going back to wearing a pad, but it's also completely normal.  It's definitely not your period yet.
