Hi.
Congratulations on your new baby!
I had a baby last year and in my experience that is normal. It happened a few times, but then everything sorted itself out down there!

I have had this a couple of times. I suspect it is nothing but just check with the midwife for reassurance x

Normal in my experience although none the less terrifying! Especially when it happens at a party.

I would ring your triage (save the clot if you haven't already flushed it) and see what they say. Have you had a noticeable increase in your bleeding? I had uterine infections after both my births so I am probably overly cautious but I would ring them just to settle your mind.

Congratulations on your little one flowers

I was told that if bigger than a fifty pence piece to give them a call, worth calling anyway for piece of mind. I didn't get pass any clots post birth but know a fair few people who did.

Congratulations

Sometimes clots become huge if you have been sitting for a long time or just after you wake up. It's just that with non movement they have longer to form before gravity gets the chance to do its thing.

Yeah I had been to sleep so hadn't moved and yeah health visitors coming today so il ask or show her I did save it sounds gross but thought I better do xx
