Oh my! Thank you so much for asking this question as I was wondering the same thing how ever I haven't had my c section yet! Just want to thank you though for posting it, saves me asking the same thing in 4 weeks! x
UGH. Thanks :P I'm expressing at the minute and the mw said that I'll bleed more while I'm doing that. I'll pretend it's a finite amount of blood then and tell myself that the more it happens the nearer I am to the end *sigh* lol.
Another random question I just wondered about...I had to have those injections in my tummy for a week after giving birth and they were to thin my blood, do you think it has any affect on 'that' blood? Or is it just the blood running around your veins? I just wondered whether to expect a difference now they've come to an end. I've got to be honest the blood is completely different to any period I've ever had...I've been trying to describe it to my OH, likening it to different consistencies he totally loves that I intend on sharing every bit of the pregnancy with him or maybe not :P
I'm with you on the whole yuk thing. I hated bleeding afterward asi hadn't used pads in years, I just fund the whole thing gross and always used tampons. However you shouldn't use tampons for some reason so think you just have to wait it out I'm afraid ;(
I remember feeling so down last time as I thought after having bubs I could just swan around with no clothes on but I hated having leaky boobs and bleeding, it does suck. I think it is a finite amount isn't it? Oh god I hope so! A bled for around 4 weeks last time, sorry, but it def does get lighter.
I was wondering this as well. I had a c-section 3 weeks ago and I am still bleeding. It feels like its going to stop but nope the blood just keeps dragging out. My boyfriend thinks its because we had sex. I just wish the blood would go away..........
I bled heavily for the first couple weeks, it tailed off in week 3 so I could swap maternity pads for normal sanitary pads, coming and going in week 4 and stopped altogether just before we hit 5 weeks. I had the injections and didn't notice any difference when they finished, sorry! The other hideous thing I found is that even tho the bleeding has stopped, I still have to wear enormous granny pants as anything else rubs against the healing incision.
