Period Heavy

concerned - October 10

I gave birth 6 weeks ago, and started my period 3 days ago, the last two days my flow has been very heavy soaking a pad an hour for a few times then it goes to normal, soaked every 4 hours i don't remember it being this heavy i don't have many cramps and i am not pregnant again, is it heavy because all those months of not having a period builds up the uterus wall and it is thicker than usual? or should i be concerned? by the way i lost my baby at 6 months due to unknown reasons and have been having lochia for the last 4 weeks than nothiing for two than now my period, has anyone have a heavy first period following a loss or after childbirth?

my doctor told me for my first period to expect really heavy and possibly painful. she said she has gotten many phone calls from patients thinking they are hemoraging, thats how heavy it can get. but if you still have concerns i would call the doc. my baby is 11 weeks now and i still havent gotten mine so i cant tell you my personal experiences
