Ok, so Heidi is over 3 weeks old and as expected I was bleeding for a few days and then it slowed down and everything seemed normal. Then it stopped, then a couple days later it started again for a day, then stopped, and now started again. Just brownish, but enough to need a pad... Ok, I warned you that this is TMI, but I thought this sounds unusual, but just curious if it is "normal" or something to worry about.
Whether it's normal or not, I've been bleeding since Tyler was born. He'll be 4 weeks on Monday. It's slowed significantly, but I still need to use a pad.

As far as I know it sounds normal. I think the brown means that you're almost done healing. I actually didn't seem to bleed as long or much this time. I thought it would be a lot heavier than what it was. Plus a lot of mine seems more mucusy than anything. I haven't actually bled for like a week or two now, but I've had the yellowish/brownish mucusy stuff since then. And it's not heavy at all, but still enough to need to wear a pad, esp since I don't want that stuff in my underwear!

It's normal. I've been having the same thing here and a lot of women from my DD's board had it for up to 8 weeks after all those LO's were born.
Glad to know that everyone is in a similar place... Not liking the stopping and starting... hopefully will be all done soon!
