Was there a determined cause of the miscarriage at 17 weeks that they fear could be repeated this time around? I would definitely talk to them to try and get a more concrete understanding.
I'm so sorry that happened to you. I really hope you find competent doctors and get the answers you are looking for.
This. I had a loss at 14 weeks and at 15 weeks. They have never recommended I abstain from sex during pregnancy. I would imagine it's just "what they do". I'd say go for it. :)
They are going to be very "traditional" in their approach and perhaps not well studied in current research. I wouldn't accept anything just because they tell you, but make sure you are well educated too.
Wife to a wonderful husband, mom to 5 amazing boys, 2 m/c and Knox Cornelius our 5th son born at 15weeks 12/3/2011, Lillian Faith our 1st daughter, born at 14 weeks May 19, 2012 (Turner Syndrome).
Add me to the list that thinks the advice given to you is probably unnecessary. I have had 7 losses and still wasn't told to abstain. I was just told to use common sense. ;)
