I can't remember how long I bled after DD and DS, but this is going on two weeks and I'm so over it. It's not red red anymore, but it's just the longest period, lingering too long. Blech. I recall buying pads to use after DS was born, but not using them and throwing them away (perhaps the hospital gave me a crazy number to go home with?). But this time I've used the hospital ones and I've bought two packages of pads.
