Re: 17 week loss

I lost my daughter in April, and chose to deliver at 18wks 3 days (she passed somewhere around 15 weeks, they think). My cycle returned about 5 weeks later, and was EXTREMELY heavy the first 2 times. (I had cycles in May, June & July.) I am currently approximately 5 weeks pregnant (will be 6 weeks on Wednesday) - we "didn't try, didn't avoid" starting in June.

From what I hear, you only have to wait 3+ months if your cervix was manually dilated, as in a D&C or D&E. I was induced without complications, so I was told to wait as long as I felt my body needed.

Good luck mama - you will be in my thoughts.
