|11-11-2010 - what in the world is this?
||My mood while writing this blog:|
So I had my first pp period, or so I thought, last week. It ended this past saturday. Monday I went in to the doc and got my 6 week checkup. I told her that I had my period and she seemed suprised. When I was bleeding, it was ALOT, way more than my normal periods, and it lasted for 6 days, got lighter and went away. Since then, sometimes when I wipe after using the bathroom the tp will be red, and if I wipe again, maybe just a little blood, and then none. The next time I use the bathroom, no blood. Its not alot, just enough to make the square of toilet paper bright red. This might happen 1-2 times a day and has been going on for 3 weeks. I just thought it was my period starting up, and then I had what I thought my period was, and now im still spotting. Dh and I started having sex 4 weeks after Anna was born.We used condoms. I wont even let him near me without one, lol. I tore my labia so minorly during birth, that it didnt even need a stitch, and it healed quickly (though it doesnt look the same :( At my appointment the doctor swabbed me and I thought maybe that is why im spotting, but it isnt going away. I also have these weird feelings. Its almost like a hot flash, or morning sickness, but I know im not pregnant again. It lasts for a minute of so, then goes away. What the heck is going on? Am I coming down with the flu, or what? I am so confused! I know I should call my doctor, but I dont know how to explain this all to her, without sounding like a space case. She said my uterus is back to where it should be, so thats good. Any help would be appreciated!

- Thursday, 11 Nov It probably is just your cycle trying to right itself. It took me a solid year to get back to "normal" lol... What ever that is. At least I feel better. I would also do, something like what you are doing. I had spotting everytime I went to the bathroom for some time after. To make your self feel better though you may want to take a test. Then just relax and let your body heal. :) Love*Made*Us

- Thursday, 11 Nov have you taken a pg test just to rule it out? We were using condoms when I got preg with Talia. It also could be an infection or even no reason, just your 1st pp period. Every pp period for me was different. I would take a test and if its neg I would call your doc and just explain it to them. I promise you wont sound like a space case mommyof2in10
- Thursday, 11 Nov I would call the doc. It could just be your cycle trying to get back to normal, but it doesn't hurt to follow up if you are concerned.
