Re: What's the longest your postpartum bleeding lasted?

So far this morning, it's been like a period. I didn't have any ovulation signs, so I am really confused as to what's going on.

I had about 6 wks but spotting continued particularly when physical activity increased. Try to get some rest. I would spot even after a 20 min walk.

With DS2 I felt like I bled forever! It was really light, mostly spotting, but it went on for probably 10 weeks or so.

Between 7 and 8 weeks. I was on my feet WAY too much though. Take it easy a few days if possible.

No exam today. MW called to cancel b/c she is sick. Not sure when I'll have one yet, she will call another time to reschedule.

I bled for six weeks, seemed like I was stopping, then would get my period, literally the day after I thought I was done.it was that way with all three of my babies who were ebf...this one (due any minute) will be eff, i'm curious to see if that makes a difference at all...but really, could I possibly get my first ppaf earlier than 6 weeks? I sure hope not!

sorry, i'm really bad at autocorrect and I don't like proof reading!

Re: What's the longest your postpartum bleeding lasted?

This happened to me with my last baby. With my first four, I bled for five to seven weeks, then was done. I did have spotting on and off for the last couple weeks or so, but it was completely over by around week seven.

Then with my fifth, I bleed on and off for three months. I found it particularly strange because I'd have *NO* blood/lochia for one or two weeks, then start spotting again. It was almost as heavy as a period, but only last a day. I seriously thought I started my period, even though I usually enjoy lactational amenorrhea for at least a year, but it was just spotting. My midwife said it was normal. It did eventually stop, and hasn't returned. Dd is 7 months old now, so I'm confident that it wasn't an early period, just weird spotting.
