Re: 17 week loss
Mama, I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my little boy, Marco at 17w in February. I was able to birth him naturally and will always be grateful for that opportunity to hold him and say good-bye. They never did find out why I lost him... but I suppose they can't test for everything.
I bled for about 2 weeks after his birth, it was very similar to the pp bleeding I experienced with my daughters births. We started TTC again as soon as that was over, though I did take that first month off fertility meds. It was my fourth cycle (3rd round of Clomid) when I finally conceived again. Honestly, that was the first month my body actually felt ready. My cervix had still been a bit open and soft through the 3 cycles before- but my MW said there wasn't any medical reason for me to wait- so I didn't.
