Re: hi im really worried..

Give your body time to adjust after the birth of your new baby which is not a small issue for your body. If the blood is bright red then that is a good sign as it suggests the problem is local and immediate and you should heal in good time. If it is a deep red then that suggests the blood is not fresh and the problem is taking its time to show itself. Whatever the colour I would raise it with your nurse and not worry unecessarily as you should try to relax and enjoy these early moments with your baby. Congratulations by the way. Cheers, kennyboy.

Re: hi im really worried..

Did you have any meds or an epidural? If so then maybe it is from that. I've had six kids and can tell you it takes time for your body to go back to normal. I did have a colonoscopy after the last baby-I had blood in my stool. It was nothing bad. Good luck! Enjoy your baby....don't stress....this time flies by! Next week my oldest turns 15! He just walked by me and told me he was going to start driving in 6 months-OH MY GOSH! Your so young and your body will heal up great! I had my first one at 22 and my last one at 35-big difference! Just breath!
