Hi just querying whether it's normal or not!! I'm day 6 post section, bleeding is down to a minimum, has gone a pinky/browny/yellowy colour but smells really sweet? Sort of a bit like seven or how my waters smelt... Is this normal?

My lochia was stop start for about 6 weeks. I thought it had stopped entirely (mine was similar to yours) at 10 days pp but came back again a few days later. I found it came back when I was more active.

Maybe yours has gone completely, in which case count yourself lucky 😀

Mine smells similiar. Ask your midwife if you are concerned.

Just a warning I thought mine had stopped but it came back this morning (7 PP). Just be careful to wear a pad.

Lochia usually contains small amounts of amniotic fluid (your waters) amongst other things so sounds normal to me. If it's offensive, tell your midwife.
