It's been over a month now (happy birthday, Anya!) and I'm kind of sick of having to wear a pad all the time. No real signs of lightening up here either.

This is normal, right?

Erlaine, I am right there with ya! I am 6 weeks pp and have stopped wearing pantyliners the other day, cuz I am so tired of wearing them. It is super light though and I am wearing my period panties that are going to be trashed once this is done. I had my 6 week pp check with Ob yesterday and they said it is completely normal.

How heavy is yours?
