I bled for about 4 weeks, but never as heavily as I expected and only substantially for the first week or so. But everyone is different. I know of people who were still bleeding heavily when they went for their 6 week check, or others who stopped completely after a week.

I bled for six weeks (to the day)with my first baby, had one day off, then got my period again! Ugh! It's different for every person...and every pregnancy. With my 2nd child I only bled for 2 weeks!

I bled about 6 weeks. When I went for my check up the doctor said I had went straight from bleeding into my period. So that may be your case if you have been bleeding for a while. I would also recommend talking to your doctor because everyone is dirrerent.

I bled for 5 and a half weeks but only heavily for about 10 days then got less and less from then on. If in doubt, call your doc, but like Erin said it can vary hugely between people.
