im 5 and half weeks postnatal, and my bleeding was coming to an end, and lastnight i had a clot the size of a pund coin and bright red blood in my pad, is this normal?

Happened to me too, took ages to stop bleeding... kept stopping and starting.

Talk to your midwife if you are worried though

I had stopped just before my 8 week check with both my pregancies. The first time I went to my GP who sent me for a scan to check everything was ok but I didn't bother 2nd time round.

I posted about this a few weeks ago. Was 6 wks with DS and now still a bit at 11 wks with DD. Doc has put me on anitbiotics and I've had different answers from different docs as to whether I need a scan. Its horrid, but no-one seems that worried unless you have signs of an infection (temp or bad smell).

Was 4 weeks with DD and 12 weeks with DS.
No problem just took ages.
