Is anyone else out there still having postpartum bleeding?  I thought it was gone around 6 weeks, but came back.  Now, at about 9 weeks pp, I'm still having a bit of discharge...enough to where I have to wear a pantiliner.  Grr....Seriously, I've never had it last this long.

Mine left and came back, left and came back, left and came back. I seriously thought I was already getting my period. It seems to be stronger if I've been out and about, I wore the baby on an hour long walk the other day and started bleeding again. Sigh.

Mine took forever to go away this time, too. I'm finally normal... not sure if I'm cycling yet because I did bleed last month and it 'could' have been my moon, so trying to be very careful. I think if you still have lochia/bleeding  now it's definitely your body telling you to take it easy and heal. I had to rest a lot more this time, even when I felt ok.... if I did too much I knew it by the increase in lochia.
