From my understanding a C-section birth doesn't bleed as much becuz they "clean" you out. (I could be wrong, but I think that's how it goes). I've heard that it should stay the same or get less anywhere between 2-6wks, but if during this time it gets less, but then picks back up again, you maybe doing too much, to take it easy. But it's not uncommon for it too last 6wks.
I bled for 4 weeks. Stopped breastfeeding at 6 weeks and got my period 8 weeks to the day after my son was born. That first period after he was born was probably THE WORST period I've ever had. Not as bad as the post delivery bleeding, but pretty close.
