    even if it stops and starts again? I only bled for a little over a week, so its been like 3 or 4 weeks without any bleeding.

    I would call my obgyn, but the referral still hasnt gone through

    It's normal either way. Some woman can breastfeed for long periods of time and get periods the whole time.

    I've been told before 6 weeks PP is still lochia. Mine stopped at 3 weeks and came back at 5 weeks before completely going away at 7 weeks.
