I remember the 1st period after each of my other kids. Both times it was really heavy & miserable. They do get better over time.

How do you tell if it is your period or still lochia? I'm 7 weeks pp now and the entire time my bleeding has been going back and forth between light pink spotting to passing bright red clots.
