    How big was the clot? Are you not bleeding at all? I think you normally bleed for 2-3 weeks.

    yesterday, I was not bleeding anymore at all and today in the morning it was only a tiny bit so far!
    I also have some tummy pain since yesterday and I am getting concerned.

    is it possible there is still parts of the placenta inside the womb?

    I found the clot quite big, OH not!

    it was approximately the size of a ten p coin.

    I had clots bigger than a 10p, I remember after Ella being stood with her in the kitchen and having to hand her to DH as I felt a big clot slide out *blurgh* (about the size of a egg). Apparently if they're bigger than a 50p then contact your MW.
    Areyou feeling ill?

    besides of my tummy pain I am not feeling ill.

    tummy pain feels like when having pain in stomach, but it is nearly gone now. maybe it was only my stomach!

    and I am bleeding again...

    I will ring mw to see what she says.

    thx very much for replying :hi:

    I think its normal, but its always good to check for re-assurance if nothing else.

    I had clots with my first, but no other problems.

    With both I bled for 2.5 weeks which would come and go (Apparently the bleeding can re-start if you do too much) then I had lochia (Sometimes pink, sometimes brown) for a further 4 weeks, so almost 8 weeks in total of stopping and starting before I had nothing at all.
