Is this normal?

  1. hi everyone!
    i am an l&d rn hopeful and currently working on pre-reqs for nursing school.

    before i ask my question i know you guys can't give diagnosis or medical advice and i do have a call into my dr. but i won't hear from him until the end of the day.

    i had my daughter 8 months ago and have been nursing her(and still am) so i haven't had a period unit now. my period started on the 26th and is extremely heavy, at least for me. (a super tampon lasts less than 3 hrs) and it hasn't slowed down at all! i can even feel gushes every once in a while.
    before having elizabeth (my third child) my periods have always been very light with the first day being the heaviest. after having my other two kids (which i didn't nurse) my period went back to normal.

    is this normal?

    You are correct, Kimberly.

    We cannot offer advice like this. If you are concerned, place another call to your doctor. He/she is the only one who can advise you.

    We hope all is well.
