<p>What's normal and how was yours?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>DS is 15 days old and I still occasionally get red blood. <span><img alt="irked.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif">  Its not heavy but it doesn't look like its going to stop in the next day or two.</span></p>

<p>I believe that the official normal is that it lasts 4-6 weeks. I had super heavy bleeding for 3 days until I passed a clot with some membrane. early period type bleeding for two weeks, consistent but lighter bleeding (like the last couple days of my period) until about 4 weeks, and spotting until 6 weeks. I think I had more bleeding than average though, because my platelet count had gone low for the last week of my pregnancy, and I pushed myself a lot postpartum. </p>
