  • About 10 weeks, but it was really light, like brown spotting that would just never go away. I don't remember how long it stayed heavy I just remember that it lasted so long the doctor did an ultrasound to make sure there wasn't part of the placenta left inside or something.

  • it can last for 8 weeks. mine was heavy for like 2-3 weeks, it would slow down, then come again, and it didn't really actually stop until 8 weeks
