maybe tmi, but i'm a little concerned...bleeding after birth

I am 8 weeks postpartum. My lochia lasted about 3.5 weeks, but then by week 6 after baby I started period like bleeding which lasted 8 days. At first the dr said it's not abnormal for one to start their period even if breast  feeding. But now at 8 weeks I have begun bleeding again, very slight this time, but it is still concerning me. Anyone else been in this situation? Should I be concerned?

  • Is it possible you over-exerted yourself?  Now, having had a c/s, I know it's different than vaginal, but there have been times I've over exerted myself and had spotting.

  • Have you and H had a little nookie?  I've spotted after each time we have (I've also got mirena).  As always, if you're worried call your OB.
