So, I think I am done bleeding. Tomorrow I will be 3 weeks postpartum so that's not a bad amount of time for me. With my other pregnancies I always bled for about 4 weeks, with the last 2 weeks being spotty here and there. I'm just happy to be DONE!

How is everyone else doing?

I'm 7 days out and pretty much done bleeding - pantyliners will do. I'm just not a bleeder, very lucky with that, even after birth my midwives were surprised at how little blood loss I had.

Still actively bleeding at 13 days postpartum...although it has slowed down and lightened a lot. I usually go a full 4 weeks so we'll see this time.

My bleeding pretty much stopped by 2 weeks. I'm still having a little bit of pinky discharge sometimes but a minipad does the job.

I'm 4 weeks out. Wore a pad for 3 weeks and a pantyliner for 1 week and now nothing. I'm so happy to be done with that. I hate leaking from everywhere.
