Congratulations on the birth of your baby!
I had a c-section last year with my baby boy, and had bleeding exactly as you describe which went on for about 6 weeks. I still had light bleeding about 8 weeks after the op. Sometimes the clots were massive, especially if I had been lying down - midwife said that the blood can 'pool' and clot, then when you stand up it comes out.
But, it does seem a bit unusual that you only had light bleeding and then so long with nothing, to now be getting such heavy bleeding.
I would definitely get it checked by your GP.
