I had a c section 11 days ago and while the bleeding stopped 3 days ago today it has started up again -is this normal?

yes and from what i can remember,the more you do as in the more active you are the more you'll bleed in my experience.

congratulations though,what did you have?

I bled for five weeks post c-section on and off and like cheesesarnie says if you are more active you do bleed more.

thanks, is my 1st (and last!) c section so only knew what bleeding is like after natural birth.
Cheesesarnie- I had a boy, my 4th! not planning any more cause I had a bit of a horrible pregnancy- BUT he was worth it. smile
