This might be a bit much to discuss but how many weeks was your Lochia?

I'm a bit concerned since mine stopped 11 days post partum but started up again on day 18 when I was doing some heavy cleaning in the house. I've been bleeding / spotting off an on ever since. The OB isn't concerned. I would have thought it would be long gone by now.

Anyone care to add their two cents?

Mine with Marsi stopped at 8 days and never came back. With Dorian, I wore heavy pads for over 2 weeks and I am still wearing liners. It comes and goes with regards to how dark the blood is. It was a month yesterday. My mom bled with every child for a full 6 weeks. It is unfortunately normal.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I recall someone in our DDC having it for 2 months after birth. I think there is definitely a wide range of normal, and it's also normal for it to stop and then start back up if you do too much.
With me, I had it stop and then come back about a month after birth, and just kept going and going after that (it wasn't a lot, but it was annoying). My OB had to give me a high dose of hormones to sort of "reset" my uterine lining to get it to stop, and I haven't had any bleeding since.

This time around it was less than 2 weeks and only occasional spotting for a week, week and a half after that. But with my son it lasted about 6 weeks. And around 4 weeks got so bad I was passing out and had to go to the hospital. So each time it can be different.

Mine lasted for about 4 weeks and then stopped for 2 weeks then came back for about 8 days. I had it really rough after Christian was born. No fun at all.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

For me it has only lasted two weeks or so and now there is minimal bleeding but still some discharge.

Mine also stopped and started a few times. All together I think about 6 weeks total.
