OK. It has been 4 years so I cannot remember... I know that I bled almost up to my OB revisit... but I cannot remember much more than that.

My flow has been going through spurts. Sometimes I'm barely spotting and other times it's like I'm on my period. TMI-Somestimes the blood is brown, other times it's fresh blood. Occasionally, I have clots that come out.

I believe I bled for about 4 weeks with the other two kids. I'm hoping it doesn't go on that long this time around!

I passed a rather large clot while I was still in the hospital, but then it pretty much decreased from there.

I have spurts of bleeding. I really did not bleed to much after I got home. But my bleeding comes in sporratic spurts-- i will have a big clot come out then a day or 2 bleeding after that then nothing.............. it has been very odd. I just wnder if my bleeding as been like this becuase i had a scheduled c-section and did not go through labor and dialation?

Yes i did have blood increases esp with the breast feeding. I was told you bleed more when you breast feed by doctors and nurses.
