OK - I have seen some ladies only bleeding for 2 weeks. Saturday will be five weeks for me. About a week to ten days ago, it turned to brown bleeding for 2 days. It then went to bright red - enough to fill 1-2 pads a day (and I do not mean pantyliners Wondering if anyone else is still bleeding (fair amount bright red sometimes with small clots 5 weeks pp). I have my check up on the 17th (doc likes to wait 6 weeks, so I guess he will tell me then if it is normal. My mom suggested that I went right from pp bleeding to my first period. I guess it is possible, although I am consistently bf without supplementing. There have been 1 or 2 times when Elli went 5 hours without nursing - but generally no more than 3 hours.
With DD I bled for 4 weeks PP then got normal AF. This time my bleeding is very erratic. It will be almost nothing for a few days then a lot for a day. I am only 2 weeks PP now but I'm not even sure when it will quit this time. :/
I will be 4 weeks pp on Saturday and I am still bleeding. I have had a few times with a day or 2 of nothing that I think it's over, and then, just like you said, more bleeding, back to a bigger pad. I really don't think it's AF for me. AF for me is HEAVY and does not come and go. PP bleeding sucks.
With my first pregnancy, I bled for about 11 weeks. I remember, because I stopped right as I was about to go back to work after 12 weeks. Then 2 weeks later, AF showed up. It was a cruel joke. I think I bled for around 10 weeks after my second pregnancy. This one made things easier on me...I bled for 3.5 weeks, then was able to ditch the pads. I still had some clear discharge, but not a whole lot, so I was able to use cloth liners. Now, at 5.5 weeks, I've got some light pink bleeding, so it's back to the liners. At least I can use cloth now instead of the huge disposable pads. Those were hurting me!

My first thought as I was reading your post was that it was AF as well, but who knows! I'm 2 weeks and a couple days pp and still bleeding. Some days it's heavier than others, and I thought the clots had stopped but they started up again last night so who knows!!!
I am 3 weeks PP after a c section now, almost 4 weeks. Some days it seems like its the last day of your period and other days it seems like its the heaviest day of your period and I want to lock myself in my room with a box of chocolated and a bottle of tequila.
Anyway you slice it, this sucks. I feel like...."Haven't I done enough already? Can we just skip this nasty bloody session?"
I had a C section and stopped bleeding about 2/3 weeks PP. I stared taking the pils at almost 4 weeks PP. We did they dtd last Friday and Saturday at 4 1/2 PP and now I am just over 5 weeks PP. i started spotting again and now today it is almost bleeding again UGh. You think this is do to starting the pill or DTD???m I am pumping too.
