brown blood is just old blood. Its normal to bleed that long and on and off. Only be worried if it gets unusually heavy or you have strange oains

Everyone is different, I bled for 7-8 weeks, had about a week without anything then got my first period around 9 weeks. It was horrible! :( I know I ovulated around 7 weeks coz I felt it. It was the worst ovulation pain i ever had. From about 4 weeks pp I was cramping as well, I was convinced I was having a period already. I remember posting a topic about it lol.

Some women don't stop bleeding for months. And the pains you are having is your uterus shrinking. Its contracting. Also completely normal.
