Postpartum bleeding.. how long till it stopped?

I'm 3 weeks 2 days postpartum. I have had a few days of no bleeding, and then got all excited, and the next day would start bleeding again.

So.. how long till it stops? You'd think I'd know this, with it being the 4th baby, but I just can't remember.

God bless!

I had 3 kids and stopped at different times. Most was around the three week mark, but with my last it went for 4 weeks and 3 days! Hope it stops soon for you.

I only have one, but stopped mostly within a week and completely within 10-12 days. I was VERY active, though, so that might be part of it. I never really had a "recovery" time. I had high blood pressure when I left the hospital, so started walking a mile or two daily around 4-5 days PP.

Thanks. I'm 3w 2d, so hopefully it's almost done.

God bless!

With DS my PP bleeding lasted for 3 weeks. I then had exactly 4 weeks before my first PPAF, despite EBFing. :-/

I bled on and off for 7 weeks with my youngest. I bled for about 4 weeks with my others. My youngest is also the only one I breast fed!

Mine was 4wks with all 3 of my previous pregnancies. But, with all of them, the last week was just light or spotting and thin liner was enough. Of course, with my first, I started bleeding again at 6wks and then found it was my first pp period! It came very 28 days after that even though I was EBF'ing.

I bled for 8 weeks and it wasn't a period... I didn't have a period until Ds was 18 mo and at that we "made" it come back with herbs. I was terrified that because I had pp bleeding for that long I would surely get a period immediately but nope! It sucked bleeding for that long but so glad I was free for so long. I was also very active after birth an my mw said that probably contributed to the extended bleeding - we were hosting a retreat that was far away to 20 people when Ds would e six weeks old so we were busy up until we got home from the retreat...and then the bleeding stopped a few days after.

6-7 weeks with all 3 of my kids. It would taper off around 4 weeks, then come back, then get really light the last week. But still at least 6 weeks of bleeding each time.
