Bleeding again? - 2 weeks after birth


I had bleeding for just over a week and then it started to slow down to just a little bit of old blood with slight spotting in the evenings. Today though i've started bleeding again and it's bright red and heavy again. Is this normal after almost 2 weeks?
I'm on anti biotics for a nasty bladder infection that i've had since the birth and i've since been put on iron tablets so don't know if either of these can affect the bleeding?

Health-wise i've felt so rubbish since the birth and feel like things will never be normal again

Oh, you need some rest hon! The bleeding is probably from you doing too much too soon..You just had a baby! Yes, the bleeding tapered off, but if you start to do errands, and cleaning, whatever, it will kick back up..I always took that as a sign that I was doing too much too soon...Just keep resting!

Oh, and looking at your sig line, your baby is just over 2 weeks old..This can continue to happen..off and on..I have had it stop almost completely, I go and do a bunch of lifting or just work, and it starts back up again...
