After c-section

How long does the bleeding from the vagina last after a c-section? I know it's different for everyone, but I'm looking for a rough estimate I guess. I know after my vaginal delivery with my first pregnancy the bleeding went on weeks, and I'm just not sure if the bleeding lasts about the same with c-sections..

I heard (haven't experienced it myself) that the bleeding is similar to vaginal birth

6 weeks is like what I had with my first baby..but it seemed to make sense to me because it was vaginal. I'm hoping for the shorter end of the scale this time!
