Few weeks with my first and second. About a week with my third. And 4ish weeks with the twins this time. I'm 5 weeks out and still wear a cloth panty liner 'just in case' when I'm away from the house for a long time.

Travis is 5 1/2 weeks and I'm still spotting. It lasted longer than 6 weeks with both my other two, so I am not expecting it to stop for at least a week still.

not "officially" in your ddc but i delivered in your month (8/27)....

mine lasted about 13 days...i left the hospital early afternoon of her second day and wore their medium size pad home and Dp had bought me some Always but just the regular ol size and that was enough....i still have some left in the pack of 36 he bought me...

i thought i would last weeks and weeks since i hadn't had a cycle since getting pregnant with dd2's big sister July of 2003.....

hope it ends soon for everyone....

Mine is back ... at least I think it is. If it's a period, I'm going to cry. I nurse way too much to get my period now.
