Its normal I m not bleeding red but still have a brownish blood doc said if you breast feed it can last alot longer even past 6 weeks it will stop soon and you might be having your first period after giving birth . Call your doc if you get to worried good luck

I still am and am almost 6 weeks postpartum. I had a planned c-section. It is normal, but if you are concerned call your doctor, that is what they are there for.

Becky chances are you are having your regular mensuration period...you should call your OBGYN if you soak 2-3 napkins per day. If not, then be happy because it helps in loosing the weight gained during pregnancy.

Guess what? I'm almost 8 weeks post partum and I'm still bleeding. My doctor says it's 'normal' but it's really getting on my nerves. I had a normal vaginal delivery but passed some serious blood clots for the first couple of weeks after delivery.. now it's like a light period but it won't stop.

I gave birth 7 weeks ago and had a period while still bleeding in my postpartum stages....I stopped bleeding around late my 5th week early 6th week. This was my 4th child. It's normal, they say some can bleed 6-7 weeks after giving birth.

I bleed for almost the whole 6 weeks postpartum off and on. It would be heavy one day and llight the next. I breastfeed my baby and I had a vaginal delivery with post partum hemmorhage with retained placenta.

My son is now 6.5 wks old (born 3/19/2010) and I stopped bleeding for about a week but it started spotting again today it also depends on how much u do after it stops cause I cleaned house for 2 days straight so thats why mine has started up again. You have to make sure you don't do to much until your 6 wk checkup. I haven't had mine yet as its hard to get an appointment right at that time here I go for mine on May 10th. I also have a 23 month old daughter so have been on the go since I gave birth but since I had a natural birth with no complications and a fast labor (2hrs), I am able to do alot with her. I think I bled off and on for 2 months when I gave birth to my daughter too, but I did have complications with her and she was natural too but had to have an episomty and I tore bad with her so wasn't able to move fast for 2 wks after I had her and that helped.

Hi i have a 2 month old baby girl and i bled for neally seven weeks but had some big clots come out i went back to my doctor and had a ultra sound that revieled that i still had some placenta attached to my uterine wall and i had to have a curette if any one has this i would go straight to your doctor as it can be really painful

I bled/spotted for the entire 6 weeks! :( I, too had a c-section, but it was planned. Nurse told me at my 6 week appt that you can bleed for 6 weeks. At least I haven't gotten my period yet, like some of you. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Yes, my docter said that you can bleed up to a month then you could get your period right after which has happened to me
