Maybe TMI, but first period postpartum? (No pics)

Eliza

Sooo, I'm exclusively breastfeeding but since the last week my little one had been sleeping 6/7 hours straight at night and I think this is why my period had returned already at 8 weeks pp!

Anyway, I had no idea that there would be so much blood loss, for the first day it was pretty light on, but yesterday and today (day 2/3) I'm soaking through maternity pads every 3 hours or so šŸ˜Ÿ

Makes it so hard because I have no idea when it will calm down or stop and I have so many appointments this week and a wedding on Saturday and I don't want to be leaking through on my nice dress! šŸ˜£

Has anyone else had a really really heavy unbelievable flow and how long did yours last?

Hopefully it's just like this for my first and the others go back to normal!! šŸ˜’
