well with my first child it lasted for a bout 10 days and was pretty much normal but with my second it lasted a lot longer and i had massive clots too which wasnt pleasant at all and worried me a lot, it soon cleared up tho and all was fine.

My first delivery was a c-section and it lasted for almost 3 weeks. But the second one is normal and it lasted for just a week and I was assured by my gynec that it is very normal and she advised me to take lots of iron rich foods.

It was normal for you. It can vary quite a bit. With my first born it lasted close to 3 weeks, with my second less than a week and both were 'normal'. Continue to take it easy, eat well & get plenty of rest.
