I seem to remember that my pp bleeding went from red to orangish to yellowish, and it was normal. That was nearly three years ago, so my memory isn't solid, but I did a web search and found that others do experience that, too.

As long as you don't have any INTENSE itching or an infected smell (you'll know it when you smell it) it's probably normal.

My PP bleeding went from red to brown to orange to yellow to yellow-green and THEN it stopped. It was totally gross.

Normal! It's just a differnt stage of lochia. It can let up for days and then let go of some more. I wouldn't worry.

I remember with my first I only actually bled after birth for a couple days. Then I had at least a week of orangey watery fluid slowly but consistently draining out of me. Nothing as sudden as what you described, but similar sounding otherwise. Definitely didn't smell or feel wrong... just like - I don't know - birth I guess.
