That was a bad night! This is more bleeding than I had after I delivered Andrew. The cramping was pretty bad, but only slightly more painful than my normal AF cramps. Sucketh mucho.

I almost passed out around 2:30 a.m.--suddenly I got really dizzy and everything turned black and my hubby came and checked on me asking if I was okay (I was lying on the floor). I had him Google how much bleeding is normal but I was so close to having him take me to the hospital because I was scared of passing out and not waking up (I am not sure how that happens--like, what does your body do when it decides enough is enough?). It was the first time in my life I seriously thought I might be dying! Panic!

Anyway, after some bad pain and then a few clots, the cramping sort-of went away and now I'm still bleeding quite heavily but not as bad as before (before being running to the bathroom every 10 minutes to release about 1/4 cup of blood--it just peed out of me, so to speak).

Poop. I want to get some sun the next three days, and I certainly know I won't be swimming now.

I don’t know if you are, but I'm so glad you got to do this naturally.
I was filling a pad every 5-20 minutes, depending on the gush.
The Dr. Told me to go to the ER if I was filling more than 1 pad an hour, I was actually wearing size 5 diapers and filling those every 5-20 min. I did pass out, but I felt numb and funny when I came too, I think I just couldn’t stand up anymore, too much loss of blood, I decided if I pass out one more time I'd go to the ER. But I felt in God’s hands and that everything was going to be okay.

I'm sorry you had to go through this Sarah, and especially on your vacation. My bleeding really died down after I passed the placenta. So hopefully yours does too and you can still go get some sun.
