Have you been an bit more active today? That can make your blood loss heavier, take things a bit easier and it will return to how it was.

As long as it doesn't smell, it should be ok smile

All three of mine were on and off for a few weeks. Nothing to worry about.

Usual rule is to seek medical attention when you are changing towels more than once an hour or pass a clot larger than the palm of your hand.

I bled for ages, can't remember exactly how long but it was weeks. And definitely stop-start like you describe. Hope it settles again for you and stops soon.

With my 2nd DC I bled for about a week. It then stopped for nearly a week then started again and carried on for another 4 weeks!
Everytime I overdid it a bit I bled more ( and red again)

Had nothing all night and morning, then got up moved about had a but of a gush now ok.

I'm ready to just get back to normal now sad

I had an EMCS with my son and bled for 6 weeks!
I also agree with PP, the days I was more active the heavier it was.
