So for about a week after my c-section I had fairly minimal bleeding. Since then I've just had some discharge type stuff. But last night I started bleeding - a lot. It looked like someone was murdered in my bathroom and I was (sorry, TMI) humongous clots. It was so much that I actually had the MFM on call paged (given the nature of my pregnancy I was treated only by an MFM, no regular OB) at 4:30 this morning.
He said that your first post-partum AF can be very heavy, but what I described sounded excessive. Plus he said that it was awfully early for me to have AF, that it usually comes like 6 weeks post partum. Also, given "that it's me" he can't write it off (apparently I am officially infamous in the practice as the "if it can go wrong, it will go wrong" patient). He said to drink a lot of water and to call the office at 9:00 if the bleeding is still heavy. It's still heavy, but I haven't seen any clots since I've been awake, so I think I'll wait it out and see what happens. But did anyone else experience anything like this?
