OK so here's a little background. I had my son via c- section back in April. Had pp bleeding for exactly 6 weeks, then around 6 weeks later started with light period and had it every month after that for 3 months. Then had no period for 2 months, thought I was pregnant, yet several tests said negative. Finally started getting the Brown blood right after I had a cold and had that off and on for about a month. Then I recently got my period 2 weeks ago and still have it. The first week it was a mixture of mostly light days, but then towards the end of the week when it would normally stop, it got heavier, like going thru super plus tampons every 45-60 minutes. Then this past week the heaviness continued with huge blood clots. Like some the size of my palm! And I stillhave it with no signs of letup. As a side note I exclusively breastfeed my 9 month old and have been since birth. He nurses on demand and hasn't started regular solids, just picks off my plate occasionally. Oh also, right after the Brown blood started, after I had my cold, i had these nesting like habits for like 4 days. I mean I was obsessively organizing and cleaning everything and that's not me at all. I didn't even get that when I was pregnant. Sohas anyone else experienced something similar? Is it a miscarriage(although I feel emotionally the same and haven't had much pain)? I have an appt on Friday, but just looking for some feedback beforehand. Thanks!
