There are some aspects of postpartum recovery you are probably (vaguely) ready for — the bleeding, the exhaustion, the soreness. But there are actually some pretty weird postpartum symptoms that might not be on your radar.
Most of the time, these are either related to postpartum bleeding, or a change in hormones. But, if you’ve never had a baby before, they can definitely take you by surprise!
So, here’s a list of strange postpartum symptoms for you to be on the look out for, or reference should you find yourself suddenly chilled, sweating buckets, or anything else in between!
2. Night Sweats
3. Heart palpitations
4. Hair loss
5. Weird Bleeding Smell
7. Gas Bubbles / Gas Pain
8. Perineal / rectum pain
Bonus: Postpartum itching. @juna.moms

OMG yes the bleeding smell thought that was just me 😂😂
Anyone else have random nose bleeds?😣
Palpitations.. fungal infections..hair loss..dry feet soles..
The cold! It was the middle of summer and I felt like I was in Antarctica 🥶
Constipation!!! I have
Did anyone get the weird shakes and jitters after birth too ? 😳
Man, having a baby sounds oh so great🥴
I appreciate this post! I’m 10 days pp and have been having night sweats and now chills today, i was starting to worry I was getting sick. How much would that suck!
Had the hair loss and the weird bleeding smell…these went away about 2 or so months after giving birth…maybe a bit sooner..thank God!
Still have the heart palpitations almost 2 years later
I had uncontrollable chills and heart palpitations one my first day home, and turned out I caught sepsis. Had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance. I attended birth class and they taught a lot of what might go wrong during birth, but there was nothing about complications and life threatening symptoms after the birth. My midwife at the hospital discharged me with a mild fever saying it was ok and normal. And the paramedics thought I had a panic attack and did not think of possible blood poisoning. I hope more people know about the possibility of septicaemia and how this can turn fatal 🙁
4 weeks now with night sweats..
Let’s not mention the feeling of the uterus shrinking. 😂 I think above all of these, that was by far the strangest feeling.
