    Ugh, not the greatest news here to update everyone on.

    I've been bleeding heavily and bright red since the birth and it hasn;t much tapered off, it actually increased today. This evening I (totally TMI and gross but here goes) passed a HUGE clot. This was around an inch wide, an inch thick and FOUR inches long, it was horrible. I've been having really bad afterbirth cramping and I think my body was trying to pass this tissue. I'm still bleeding pretty heavily but not *quite* a pad an hour.

    I called the OB's answering service and got the on call doctor. They said that if I kept bleeding heavily I'd have to head to the OR and if it tapered off I could call the OB in the morning. I don't think it's going to require another call in but if it's still red in a few days, or still heavy-ish, I am thinking an ultrasound to see what may have been retained (or if my scar somehow tore a bit) is in order. Ugh. I feel okay, just crampy and sore. My entire pelvic floor feels swollen and bulgy but after tearing so badly I figured that and the uterine ache were quite normal. I haven't had any outright signs of infection so I am not too worried but I'd rather NOT need a D&C, you know?

    Everything else is going well. Lilah's sleeping easily 7-8 hours at a time, and if I didn't wake her up to feed in the early evening and late morning it'd be even longer, it's CRAZY for a breastfed baby! I'm feeling good other than the bleeding/cramping. I had a headache on my left side for days after the birth (which I am thinking is from the first misplaced epidural!) that has finally subsided and I am down 20 pounds below my *prepregnancy* weight now, which is GREAT!'

    I have been working on typing up the birth story and I'll get that up soon, but I figured this monster piece of tissue deserved a post all it's own

    Oh, I hope everything is okay! Take it easy in the meantime you must be exhausted from all of that bleeding. Congrats on the weight loss! I can't wait to be under my pre-preg. weight. I started out the heaviest I've ever been though, so I've got a long way to go. KUP on your situation. I hope you do not need a D & C either!

    Still bleeding bright red but the severity tapered off pretty dramatically, so I am not even going to go in unless something more worrisome pops up. WHEW! I HATE going in to the doctor's, especially if it's something minor.

    Glad to hear the bleeding is tapering off, that was a monster sized clot for sure!!

    Happy to hear Lilah is such a good little baby, sleeps really well for such a young one too!
