I had gracie on 4/10 everything went well. It was wonderful in fact. I feel GREAT. I think for the first time ever I dont have even a hint of PPD 

however I am still having some PP bleeding. I dont want to call my midwife if it seems normal and I cant seem to remember.thanks

Can you describe it more?  I'm still wearing a pantiliner and sometimes have faint red but mostly brownish at this point. Gave birth 4/5. 6 weeks is normal.

I had bleeding a bit longer this time than I expected.  I was having light bleeding/spotting up through last week.  It was wierd, too.  I would have a day or two of nothing and think I was done and then out of the blue I would have some light bleeding/brownish discharge.  My midwife said I want to have 3-5 days of nothing before I pick up my activity level, etc.  I just now have that.  (Luke was born 3/31)

I was six weeks yesterday and I'm still spotting. Mostly brown at this point but I did have a tubal so that might be the cause.

ive had some moderate brighter bleeding as well as a few days where there was nothing then spotting . lather rinse repeat. the moderate bleeding has at least stopped. now its mostly just a light flow to spotting. I dont remember bleeding this long with the others either. I am so tired of having a pad on. it's irritating my skin. :(

I've had several days of no bleeding (not in a row), making me think I'm homefree, but then I'll have light bleeding the next day. Sigh. Tomorrow will be 4 weeks, and I think I had this til 5-6 weeks with my girls.

baby born 4/14, so a little over 3 weeks today....my bleeding let up to nothing for 3-4 days and hen came back slightly. Enough where i have to wear a pad 24/7. I'm sooo tired of wearing pads. I do have cloth...but i cant keep up the laundry at this point. I feel like i'm taking it easy....so i figured the bleeding would be gone by now.

Same here with me at 4 weeks today.  I've noticed my blood-free days are days where my activity level is low (i.e. hang around the house with kids).  On days where we are out and running around all day, I have some spotting. I'm hoping to be done soon!!
