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.

I stopped bleeding last week at 3 Weeks pp. But then 2 days later got what seemed like regular AF flow and today was brown tint. Who knows if it could have been AF for me or not

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?"

It blows. Hang in there.

I bled for almost 4 weeks. I'm just over 6 weeks now and still have to wear a liner because of heavy discharge. I wish this would stop.
