6 months postpartum, still look pregnant?

I had DS via elective C-section back in November, recovery all fine. My stomach went down after having him (not back to before but definitely down).

In about the last 2 months, my stomach has got round and I literally look about 20 weeks pregnant. I am SO bloated and tender from my breast bone down.

On top of this, I have been having really irregular bleeding (sometimes bright red clots, sometimes brown spots), hot flushes, pain in my lower abdomen and shortness of breath.

For reference I am 23, generally fit and well.

Has anyone had anything similar? Should I call the doctor now or wait until lockdown is over? I'm so unsure of what to do and my DP is being less than helpful with his neutral opinion!

I would give the GP a ring if I was you. I've had 2 C-sevtions and yes my stomach took a while to go down each time but I never experienced any of the symptoms you've listed after the first couple of weeks.

Thanks both, I have just got off the phone to the GP who has asked me to go in for an appointment later today
