It's been a week and 2 days and I'm still bleeding. Is that normal? I don't remember this with my first! It is getting annoying! lol

I bleed for 6 weeks! Then had sex and bleed a couple more days. It's going to be a while so hang in there! Congrats on your new baby! :)

Even after a c-section, in which they say you might bleed less I bled for a little over a month.

yeh dont worry about it the normal time is around the 4-6 weeks but you will find that as each pregnancy is different so is the the recovery after..but if you do get worried about it see your dr or ring the hospital and ask to speak to a midwife they are more than happy to help

I think it just depends on your body. I had bad bleeding for about a week and then off and on for about another 2-3 weeks.
