I'm 6 days pp (3/25 birth).
I had a fair bit of bleeding overnight, but so far today pretty much nothing. It has been fairly variable for me too, some days lighter and some heavier.
The after pains and cramping are gone, thankfully. The first 2 days they were really horrible, especially when I would nurse and if I was sitting in a certain position they'd seem to occur more often. Pain wise I'd rank them as high as contractions, only a bit more localised, as though being attacked with an ice pick in 2 different spots. I remember them being present the first 2 days mostly, not sure if the third day too, but they're definitely gone now.
