More of a rant than anything.

ditto... I'm at 5 weeks today and still have to wear a panty liner :( If I try to exercise I spot again so I'm still taking it easy...

I think mine lasted 2 weeks after my last baby, and I'm at 11 days now and it's already very light. But with a c-section it might be different because they use those big swab things to soak up the blood that was already in there.

I'm almost 4wks pp and I'm still wearing a liner! I remember spotting for a really long time w/my ODS, too. Then the bleeding stopped and started again 2wks later! I thought it was my period but TG it was not.

Lol. I was going to post something about this.
Tomorrow will be 2 weeks pp and i am still light light spotting. It stopped a couple of times, but only for a few hours at a time then it would start again. I just want to go back to wearing my regular underwear :(

I think it is our payback for not having a period for 9+ months, lol. I don't expect to stop spotting for another couple weeks unfortunately. My period usually starts in the 2nd month postpartum, even exclusively breastfeeding.

I'm at 4.5 weeks and just went panty liner free today. I hadn't noticed any spotting when I last went to the bathroom, but even if I spot some, I'm thinking the heavier bleeding is finally gone. I swear it didn't take this long with my other 2 (but I might not remember it exactly right either :-) ..)

For reals! I'm 4wks PP today and am still wearing a liner. I spot even more if I'm more active during the day. I'm over it, too.
