with my first i bled for about 4 weeks, i bled heavily for the first week or two and then it just went down to spotting. i just had my second and he is 3 weeks and a few days old, i don't bleed every day anymore for about a week now. now i bleed if i do more heavy duty type things: running errands all day, cleaning house all day, lifting my daughter more than 2 or 3 times that day, then i will start to spot again for a few hours.
i was never told not to go up the stairs, with my first i asked about that b/c we have a 2 story house and i was told that it would be easier if i limited to going upstairs only twice a day, so at night when i went to bed and one other time throughout the day for about a week just until the stomach muscles got used to that again.
