I bleed for 5 1/2 weeks. First 2-3 weeks were very heavy then just a little. I had a c-section. 11 weeks ago now. I have also had my first period. Shocking! Could not leave the house. I am going to by Dr next week to get things checked out. The nurses told me when I was in hospital that everyone is different. Some bleed a lot and some bleed a little.
I'm at the royal women's with lumps and breast thrush. I've had to tell the doc where their protocols are on their website so doubt I'm going to have much luck getting this sorted. I'm so over feeling like razor blades are slicing me every time I feed!
Anyone know how long it should take for all the swelling to go away...for example my wedding rings still don't fit...
Also how long is normal to return to pre baby weight....I am currently 5kg heavier than before I got pregnant...although haven't done any exercise yet.
Judy hoping my rings fit again soon
I think that some people say that it takes another 9 months to get body back...I guess less if your are breastfeeding but again everyone is different! I miss my wedding rings SO much haven't worn them since around November and they still don't make it past my knuckle!! In happier news my ankle swelling has gone and they actually look skinny I've been so used to them having lots of fluid!!! But they swelled up HEAPS more after birth before going down
