    My bleeding has been weird too! Not last night, but the night before, I put a new pad on before bed, around 9pm, and had no bleeding til noon the next day... where it felt like a gush almost!
    It's on and off all the time, and everytime it stops I get all excited, and then BOOM it's back again!

    Hi ya. I bled on and off for a couple of weeks but feeding can make you bleed as well - I panicked and health visitor said it was very normal! x

    I've been going pad-less most of the time for a few days now. I still get a bit of a "let down" bleed, i.e. when I feed Jack. This is normal, BFing releases hormones that make your uterus contract and therefore bleed a little.

    Im just starting to stop bleeding now. Don't think its normal though, they keep prescribing me antibiotics just in case I have an infection. It has slowed down before and then got heavy again though. I think as long as there are no big clots everything should be fine.

    I had a c section 3 weeks ago , aroun the 12th day it was almost gone (the brownish-pink discharche) and day 13 started red spoting again for becoming red flow again... yesterday i had a couple of clots too... I was worried, have been resting all weekend and it seems to be less now...
    is this normal?
