This could be your first period after birth. I have been told if you are filling a pad more than every hour you need to see your OB asap but I don't know if that is different for right after pregnancy as I am still cooking my first baby (I'm 30 weeks pregnant). Sorry I can't help more

Have big are these clots. I was told if the bleeding became very heavy (more than a pad an hour) and/or had clots larger than a quarter to come in immediately. Do you still have your hospital discharge papers? For mine they put conditions where I would need to be seen if they happened and who to call in that situation. Call and ask your doctor what they want you to do.
