Bleeding question 20 days PP?? !!Katie!! 1 child; Tennessee 2794 posts
24th Sep '12

I had my Son on Sept. 4th. I had a regular vaginal delivery. The only "complication" I ran into was him getting stuck on a cervical lip. The Dr. pushed him/it back a few times and he came loose. I've had the normal pp bleeding for almost 3wks now. This morning I woke up with a very sharp pain or cramp in my LOW stomach (we're talking like pubic bone low). I'm not bleeding a lot, but I did pass some decent size blood clots (nothing golf ball sized or anything). I'm still quite crampy and not bleeding a whole lot. I know clots can stop the flow of blood, so I'm assuming that's what it is.



My question is, are clots still normal at this point PP? I (stupidly) consulted "Dr. Google" and of course, it said a bunch of scary stuff.



I'm a first time Mom, so all of this is very new to me.

Take the clot and smush it as long as it breaks apart easy it is fine if it does not go in.
