How long until this bleeding stops! (After labor)

I had my baby girl on May 2nd and I know it hasn't been THAT long, but I'm just wondering when it's supposed to stop??? This is my first baby so I have no idea

It took about 2.5-3 weeks for both babies.

I bled heavily for about three weeks, then another three weeks of spotting.

Lmao! Hilarious!!! Hahaha


Quoting MeghMirab:

It's different for everyone. I bled for over a month. I felt it was cleansing though. Not too sure if I'm going to feel that way this time since it will be in the summer. lol I cannot imagine wearing a big huge mattress between my legs AND shorts. Ha! That's going to look "so hot." (:

My first son I bled for three months. Not looking forward to this time! Hoping for a shorter time!

I had a c-section (not sure it matters) but I bled for about 3 weeks, with only the first 2 wks being heavy.  I hope for a vbac this time, so it may be longer with vaginal birth recovery.
