Quoting Lizplustwo:" So I'm 5 weeks PP today...a couple times now my lochia has tapered off to almost nothing and then suddenly ... [snip!] ... - I don't know if that makes a difference. I have an appointment with my doctor on the 23rd...should I just wait until then? "
I'm also five weeks post partum today and I also have my appointment on the 23rd! My lochia flow comes and goes just like yours does too. Last week I wondered if I was getting my period because the bleeding was very heavy and now it's almost nothing. I'm also breastfeeding and I'm wondering if this is just post partum bleeding how will I know when it is my period....of course this only applies to if my bleeding does not stop.
