Sorry to have to post this but I know a few ladies have sadly gone threw this and just need some advice if this is normal?
It's been 9 day's since we sadly lost Jack, The last 3 or 4 day's I have had very minimal bleeding (Not on the pad) and then once a day I will have a big amount of bleeding and then go back to being hardly anything at all? Before the big amount of bleeding I will have cramps before.. haven't passed any clots for a few days
Does that seem normal? Am I worrying over nothing?
How long did your bleeding last? I have read it can vary between people.. but I think oh it's stopping and then bam!

Have you been doing a bit too much? I found I had a lot of bleeding if I'd maybe been running round mad or doing a bit too much manual stuff? Maybe try to rest a bit more, your body has been through a lot.
I bled for just over 2 weeks. I wasn't sure about when I'd get af as I thought things would be messed up a bit but I got af 11 days later than my usual cycles so iirc I usually had 26 day cycles but that one was a 37 day cycle.

Hi CC, hope you're OK. Try not to worry yourself too much - i think everyones body will react differently. My losses were pretty early and I did bleed quite heavily for About 2 weeks afterwards. But as I said everyone is different and their bodies will react differently. Take care of yourself.
I bled for 3 weeks I think, like CP said, after I'd been active. Please take it easy on yourself. x

I haven't been active at all.. I am not allowed to lift a finger around the house and made to relax and take it easy..
Thanks for the advice think it's just playing on my mind abit and google is not your friend in these situations!
Will try taking my mind of it but struggling not too think of either things!

Definitely stay away from Google hun! Keep posting and talking on here if it helps keep your mind busy, I'm sure no one here minds. In my experience, bottling things up is the worst thing you can do x

Haha yes google is never our friend, should know that by now, but you can't help it..
Being on here does help funny enough, I thought it was going to make it worse but it's quite comforting.
I am just dreading monday so much and driving myself mental over worrying, but I have an amazing family that have really helped me and are getting me threw this.
Me and Hubby have been talking about trying again and it scares me but also gives me comfort!

I don't think there's any right or wrong way to feel, I think you just have to ride with it. I can't imagine what it must be like to have to deal with saying goodbye but I hope that you get some comfort from it. Everyone here will be with you in spirit and support. Trying again will be another rollercoaster to get through but you and your H will help each other through it and every day will get easier x

After last time I bled on and off for about 5 weeks. It was fairly stop start and most came when I went to the loo. I went to the docs at about 4 weeks and they weren't overly concerned. Although they gave me some anti b's just in case. I've no idea if they stopped the bleeding it it would have stopped anyway.
The mws told me I might bleed for up to 6 weeks.

That sounds like me Imp.. they weren't concerned with my iron levels when I left the hospital because they were pretty good even tho I lost quite a bit of blood... I will keep an eye on it and get rechecked if I feel unwell.. not looking forward to up too 6 weeks of bleeding!
