    That's pretty normal hon. I think the shortest bleeding I remember anyone having is about 3-4 weeks. Some ladies went as long as 6 or even one or two as long as 8. It will continue to go from the orange/brown slimey lochia to red blood and back again. I know its gross but it won't last forever...
