How long did you bleed...?

after you got home from the hospital after giving birth?? I don't remember how long it was with my first DS but I had our 2nd last Monday [almost a week ago] and today when I woke up and went to the bathroom, I've pretty much stopped bleeding. My pad is almost completely clean still and there was no blood on the toilet paper. For some reason, this just seems too soon. So I'm wondering when anyone else stopped bleeding..??

  • Are you breast feeding? I had mine on wednesday and I have almost completely stopped they said that if I was breastfeeding that would likely happen.

  • When my daughter was born, my husband wasn't able to take time off of work. So as soon as we came home he had to go back to work. So she had to go the doctor almost every day being checked for Jaundice so I had to drive her and was doing A LOT of walking so i was bleeding for almost two entire weeks. And then I shouldn't have but about two weeks after her being born my husband and I had sex and I bled again for about another week, maybe a week and a half. So I think I bled more than what most people do.
