    I just posted on another thread about my eldest. I bled for about 7 weeks. I joked with my visiting nurse on how much money I had spent on pads! But, she assured me it was normal for me to be bleeding as long as I do not have a massive sudden flow *gush*. But, I am no Doctor! if you feel something is wrong by all means see Doctor. Good luck! and congrats on the adorable baby. :)
