First Post Partum Period? Irish Twins Mama ♥ 2 kids; Iowa 2147 posts
2nd Nov '12

When did you have your first post partum period and what was it like? I breastfed for a little while but my son is pretty much formula fed (I know that can affect it). I had him three weeks and three days ago, so I'm skeptical about whether or not I'm experiencing a period or still just having post partum bleeding. The PP bleeding pretty much stopped but suddenly it's heavy and I'm having horrible cramps. They almost don't feel like period cramps though, more like stomach cramps. But they ARE accompanied by bleeding.



So yeah, back to the original question..when did you have your first PP period and what was it like?

I was 4 months pp, but I was EBF. Mine wasn't horrible. Just like a normal period. How much bleeding are you having? Are you passing clots?

No clots really, just some dark red bleeding that is heavier.

On Nov 3rd I was exactly 6 months pp and started my period. No cramps at all, and I'm ebf. However, I feel like a murder scene is going on.

I'm almost 9 weeks PP and I just started mine this week...I breast fed for the first six weeks. I had a c-section and had PP bleeding for about 4 weeks. This period is by far the worst one I have ever had.
