TWO postpartum periods?? Mrs.D[is pregnant w/#2!] Due August 29 (girl); TTC since Nov 2013; 1 child; 2 angel babies; kfdfydjtyjdtyjdt, PA, United States 718 posts

So I don't know if I should be worried or not. My son is nine weeks old, and after having him I bled for 6 1/2 weeks. I stopped bleeding completely the day after my 6 week checkup. I stopped bleeding for exactly a week. Exactly a week later from when I stopped, I started spotting brown blood. This went on for three days until I started cramping and bleeding bright red and heavy. I'm assuming this was my first ppp at 8 weeks postpartum. No big deal, well that lasted 6 days (just like my AF before baby used to), but instead of it stopping, I continued to spot brown blood super lightly for this past week, and now last night It changed over to bleeding bright red again and today it's started getting heavier, just like how my first ppp started. So is this normal? Should I call the doctor Monday? I also want to know if I should be concerned with the potential of retained placenta, or does this just sound like two periods and my body trying to readjust after having baby. Thanks ladies!
