bleeding at incision site?

I had my second section on 3/12. Dr. closed with interior sutures and steri strips, he removed the steri strips on monday (3/22) at a follow up visit. Just now (3/24) I noticed some blood on my underwear at my incision site. Not a lot, but a little on my left side. Should I be concerned? Never had this with my first section, even though I was closed the same way (dif dr. though).

A little blood is probably okay, but I would still call my doctor just to be safe.

Morgan! I was just thinking of you and wondering how you were doing! Be sure to send us an update as soon as you can. I don't think a little blood is a big deal, but call your dr. and see what he has to say. You might use a gauze pad to keep track of how much it is, when, where,etc--that might also help if it just from irritation. I hope all is going well and I can't wait to hear the good news!

Hey!!! How are you? I feel like I've been gone for so long. My MIL crashed my computer and I've lost my sign on info. Need to either re-sign on or something. I miss you all!!!
