After you have a baby...

Maybe tmi.

When the hell does the bleeding stop?? Our daughter was born a little over a week ago. It's really not too bad unless I'm up and walking and moving around. I'm asking because I don't remember how long it lasted after I had my first daughter.

With my first it lasted over a month, my second only a week. Hoping this one goes that way!

2-6 weeks.  It just depends.  Mine is usually around 3-4 weeks, but it's really light at the end.

 I had complications with DS2 though too which is why it took 12 weeks and on 2 types of birth control to stop it

I bleed for 1 1/2 to 2 weeks, but everyone is different.

With each of mine the heavier bleeding stopped after a week or so and light bleeding for several weeks. You just had a baby so it is nothing like period bleeding, you have far more blood/lining to shed right now. It wont last forever, hang in there : )

If you feel that you are bleeding to much (filling to many pads in a specific time period) let your dr know asap.
