how can you tell pp bleeding from period bleeding...? is this a dumb question?
It's not considered a period unless your PP bleeding has completely stopped for awhile first. Plus, PP bleeding, called lochia, goes through stages (more info here: Lochia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and is different than a period.
I'd also like to note not expect your bleeding to stop within a week or two either. I'm one of the unfortunate ones where it always seems to last about 6-8 weeks. UGH. Not looking forward to that again. If yours does stop quickly though, consider yourself lucky!! And use protection if you don't want to get knocked up again right away, otherwise you could end up like my sister with babies born 10 months apart. lol.
