Csection incision slightly bleeding

I had my 2 week checkup and the doctor removed the strips and said everything looked great.

Tonight I noticed a bit of red blood coming from the incision. About a 1/2 inch or so. Not much, but wasn't sure if this is normal or if I should call the dr in the morning,

With my csection last year I removed the strips and part Of it actually came open (that's why you need to follow lifting instruction cause I wasn't). I believe it had some blood and discharge. They just had me steri strip it back shut and it eventually healed. Grossed me out though. I can hand seeing blood/open skin on other people but when it comes to me I get light headed. I would call just to ask them. It won't hurt anything. DH actually gave me a little lecture last night about doing what the Dr says this time cause he doesn't want any of that to happen again and he knows I will be tempted to lift Dalton (30lbs) once I get home lol. But for me the Dr wasn't too concerned about it at all.... my scar isn't the prettiest thanks to all that though.

Also keep in mind every Dr is different as I got to remove my strips after a week vs 2 weeks.

Mine bled some but everything was ok. I just kept it dry and would pay it every time I went I the bathroom. You could keep a piece of toilet paper on it under your panties to help keep it dry. At my 6 week check up it was still by completely healed and they used I think silver nitrate to help heal it and that was last week and its completely healed now!
