1st period after twins - yowza

This is bananas. I remember having a few REALLY heavy periods after Claire, but this seems ten times worse. Can the initial first few after twins be even heavier than after singletons or am I just forgetting how bad it was before?

  • I can only speak of mine after twins as I don't have any other lo's but I can tell you it was BAD. The hormones were the worst part of it. It was really intense. The 2nd month was pretty bad too but nothing like the first. After those, they regulated for me. Sorry to hear, hope you start to feel better!

    I had really bad ones in the months leading up before this pregnancy too. My OB had me on medicine to help, and it did, but it made me sleep all day.  I would only take it when DS had preschool or DH could be home. Don't think I'll be able to take that again when they resume. 

  • My first just ended and it was awful. Borderline post csection bleeding. Probably my worst period ever. It lasted with that intensity for about 5 days and was done by 8.

    Glad that's over with!

    me three.  Even now, months later, it still sucks.  It's much heavier then ever before.  And now I have a lot of cramps, before having babies I hardly had any cramps with periods.

  • I am going to preface this with that i was on the mini pill and EPing- but my first was at 7 months- it was not bad at all- it only lasted 5 days and was pretty light- and they have continued to be that way- which I am thankful for.

    So I guess I am the odd ball....

    Same for me. I didn't have cramps after having my singleton, but since having twins, it's been painful every month.

  • I have to share my horror story with you ladies, although it happened after just my son was born.  My first period after he was born started a day before a big formal fundraising ball I help organize each year.  I wore a royal blue floor length strapless gown and we sat for around 2 hours through dinner and live auction stuff.  Turns out I won the big raffle of the night, a custom made diamond necklace.  I jumped up and ran to the stage to receive my necklace.  Minutes later I went to the bathroom with my girlfriends only to discover I had bled THROUGH my gown, in three spots about the size of my hand!  I had my back to roughly 175 people.  I don't know if anyone noticed  in the audience but a bunch of very friendly, very intoxicated ladies in the bathroom stripped my out of my dress and rinsed the stains out as best as they could.  I stood basically naked in the bathroom while we flapped my dress up and down in front of a heater to dry it as best we could.  Lucky for me, they dimmed the lights for the dance about the time I left the bathroom and was able to hide the face that my dress was darker on one whole half from being wet!  Hoping this year good ol' aunt flo will still be staying away when the ball rolls around! PS-they got better after a few months, but now I am scared of what they will be like after two!
  • I've had lots of rough physical problems since my boys (C Diff, TERRIBLE backpain, some PPD) but my period isn't one!

    Have hope, still gestating women! My periods are now the lightest, least painful, most consistent that they have ever been!
