Was the bleeding different?



My first birth was mediated and i bled pretty heavy for weeks. This one was natural and I'm only 3 days pp and my bleeding is VERY light. Something what's up with that.

I don't think so. Pretty much the same if I recall correctly.

I noticed I healed a lot faster after my natural birth compared to my two with epidurals.
My bleeding went away and then came back a couple times, too.

My first I was induced and got the epidural. I laughed through the pushing process. I had to wait almost 2 hours to fully feel everything again and wasn't able to get up comfortable until it did



My 2nd, I wasnt even at the hospital 15 minutes. Had no medication at all. Got to get up immediately after being stitched from a small tear, to use the bathroom and take a shower. I also had less vaginal discomfort after and was able to go home a day early.



Bleeding was the same for both though only a little lighter this to.r

I was wondering if it might be because she's my second. Or because i was more fit this time.

I noticed the more active I am the more I bleed..like if I get up too fast..gush. gag. But I wouldn't worry! Our bodies will get it all out!
