Peronally after 2 1/2 weeks I had NO pain from my csection, but my OBGYN was amazed. I'm not the typical woman.. He was shocked at my two week checkup at how well I'd healed so far.
I bled for 4-5 weeks off and on and then it stopped. probably at the end of that 4th week, then af showed up at about 7-8 weeks.

IF your BFing it'll cause a delay in your period. BFing for a month or less shouldn't make it off by more than a week or so, however some women are just slow to "restart" they're bodies after baby. When you do decide to have sex, make sure you use condoms. It's very important, or at least know consiously what can happen if you don't. (including the risks of another baby so close to a csection... I just made a post on that last night!)
I konw it's normal

ok thanks this makes me feel better about feeling pain still and the whole bleeding thing i guess it just takes time...and after the pain i went through and having a baby so close in age would not be a good thing id cry so much if i were to become pregnant again just the thought of that gives me goose bumps.lol so yes ill be using condoms.....(tmi) but i bd a couple days ago, but it was kinda painful so i stopped ill wait it out for now.lol

I didnt have a lot of bleeding at all.  I got the occasional sharp pain along my incision but within a couple of weeks I felt much better.  You may still just be tender from the whole thing.  But don't worry too much.  Everything you said sounds normal to me and I have had 2 c sections
