Sex at 3 Weeks Postpartum Too Soon?

I am 3 weeks postpartum. I had an easy labor and delivery and my recovery has been pretty smooth as well. Even with a newborn and a 4-year-old at home I have felt really good and my husband and I decided to have sex last night.

We took it slow (for fear of it hurting). It was great. I wasn't sure what to expect as far as bleeding or spotting but I had no spotting right after or in the morning with when I woke up.
