TMI!!!! passing membranes after birth.

Second babies? Forgotten everything about breast and formula, napping and wrapping and you are are going a bit MAD because you haven't slept in three days? Or it's your first baby and you are here researching the joys of weaning?

TMI!!!! passing membranes after birth.

Postby robyn » 23 Oct 2013, 21:18

5 days pp I've just found a piece of membrane type stuff on my pad.
Definitely not a clot.
Do I need to worry? I feel fine and the MW today said my uterus has contracted down really well.

I think I probably would be because it could have come from retained placenta? I wouldn't be panicky but I think I'd want together it checked out tomorrow (by the GP?).

I have a number for the MW I'm meant to phone if there's any problems. Will call them in the morning, won't see them again till Monday otherwise.
Really hope it's nothing, everythings going so wonderfully smoothly.

It's probably nothing to worry about but I'd phone in the morning as you say.
My peas are gone as well as my marbles.

It's probably nothing but worth asking the question. I'm so glad to hear everything's going so well!

I got infections post partum with all of mine and passed lumps of membrane along with massive (bigger than 50p) clots and gushes of blood for at least a week too. I would think your mw would say its nothing to worry about unless your loss starts to smell offensive. If it smells like period it's fine but when you get an infection it smells awful, and then you start to feel dreadful, and you get a constant ache in your uterus that's different to after pains. If you have retained matter they send you for a scan and then declare that it will prob come out on its own and give you abs to deal with the infection. I went back for 2 scans after dd1 because of retained matter and infections and both times they felt they'd rather let it come out on its own than remove it. So it's the smell you want to be looking out for. But def ring your mw for peace of mind.

I do have a very achy lower stomach which I was putting down to muscle sprain from the birth. It's affecting me walking a bit :S

I was pretty achey after pushing out a large baby. When you focus on it, does it feel muscular or is the feeling a bit deeper?

It feels like pelvis pain, but more muscular iykwim? I just feel a bit weak all around there, which I think must be down to everything being strained by the pg/birth. I walked to school and back with Ida in the moby yesterday and just felt so weak and worn out and pathetic afterwards. My 'core muscles' are just shot atm I think.
The MW is at the clinic over the road from 9.30, so am going to pop in and see her.
I always start feeling a bit nauseous etc when the possibility of being ill is suggested, I'm 99% sure I'm fine.

Did you have a natural third stage? I did with Jasper and I had a lot of large clots and membranes afterwards. With my managed third stages I seemed to have a lot less gunk. One of my clots after Jasper was the size of my fist! And it was very achy, the afterbirth pains really were terrible. Hope it's nothing but get checked our if you're worried!

I had a managed third stage, and a drip to clamp down my uterus because of the PPH last time. So really the risk of anything being wrong should be miniscule.

Oh no :( I hope the GP has good news for you.

Also, you shouldn't be walking to school with Ida in the moby!!! You're 5 days pp, you should be resting and taking it easy!
