  • I didn't tear either, however it took me about 2 weeks to recover. the first one was the bloodiest, and then the 2nd one eased up quite a bit. But feeling better, it's all about how much help you have with the baby and how much you are sleeping and everything like that.. My DH took about 2 weeks off of work and that helped alot I think i was back on my toes within a month, keeping the house clean alot better, running errands, talking to my friends and remembering it. hope this helps.

  • With all of my (3) I bled about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks. I just had my third on Aug. 13th and I am done bleeding. I am feeling fine. I am out and about, running errands, taking the kids to the park, pretty much everything. DH even just went to the grocery store to buy condoms since I am feeling so well. lol I tore just a little this time around. Last time it took me awhile longer to get back in the swing of things but I had an episiotomy so maybe that was why.

  • I did tear with my first child and I bleed for almost 4 months but that was because I was given a depo shot that my body was rejecting for the entire three months that it was working. Usually it is normal to bleed up until your six week check-up. As for as when will you feel better it is different with every delivery.
