    You have a while to go. Generally 3-6 weeks.

     depends on your body... with DS1 I bled for a couple weeks and with DS2 it was a couple months(10 weeks) before they could get it to stop

    Some women get lucky and it's only 2 weeks or so, but yeah. I've always though of it as my body making up for 9 months of not bleeding.

    I stopped 4 days after delivery, then only bled if we had sex but that wasn't much.

    I bled for six weeks, it started getting lighter after about 5 weeks but never stopped. I had a delayed post partum hemorrhage at 6 weeks pp and had to have an emergency d&c because of retained placenta. That's obviously not the norm, but make sure you keep an eye on it :), most of the woman I know bled for about 3 weeks.

    About a month or so
    But it will start slowing down at some point
    Just the first week or so should be the worst of it
