    So I have been exclusively breastfeeding straight from my boob for 12 weeks and I got my period! WTF. Anyways, is it normal to be insanely heavy? I had to wake up 3 times in the night to change my pad because my flow is so heavy.

    Just wondering :shrug: My flow has never been like this.

    TMI but its very blood clotty.

    I've got a period too, not impressed!!

    Mine is fairly heavy (not that much though) but really painful and feels weird :(

    Before my girls mine were light and almost pain free. My first two periods after my first were crazy heavy and cloth and painful then returned back to normal.

    After my second my first period was also very heavy cloth and painful. Hoping the next one isn't as bad.
