    Default question about bleeding, & breastfeeding?

    Here's a little history of us..

    Gave birth to my DD on Jan 31. 08. Bresatfeeding since day 1.(she's 2 months tomorrow) my vaginal bleeding stopped about a week ago, then I started working out I went 2 times in one week and bleeding started again.

    I just wanted to know, is this normal? Im not bleeding heavly, but its been coming since wed.

    Is this my period coming back? I HOPE NOT! Im taking birth control its called Jovilette. Ive only been taking it a week now.

    Im just confused I thought I wasnt suppose to bleed.

    I had lochia bleeding for about 8-9 weeks. It did stop and start up again around 6 weeks I think.

    If you're concerned, definately contact your OB!

    I would say that is saying your body is "overworking" it migh be telling you hang on for a while longer before resuming that workout

    When bleeding starts up again, after it's either stopped or slowed, it's the bodys way of saying "slow down"

    A call the the doc/MW looks like it might be in order if you're more concerned though.

    yeah it was stopped and then started back up.
    is it necessary to call my midwife? or can I not call and just slow down or stop working out!?

    *I* wouldnt call if *I* decided to just take it easy for a while (1-2 weeks) and then started again to see what happened. If *I* did and the bleeding came back *I'd* call

    But otherwise I'd not worry unless it doesnt stop again... for a few days... bright red.... with pain. kwim?
