<p>My midwife said 2 weeks, but 2 weeks from what? The beginning or the end of the miscarriage or the end of the bleeding? I've also been reading that once the bleeding has stopped it's ok. I'm confused! We are eager to reconnect physically!</p>

I waited until the end of the bleeding, just like I would post-partum. I had a first trimester m/c around 9 weeks, so it was not physically devastating, I didn't see a reason to wait longer.

<p>I also just waited until the (red) bleeding had stopped. I think I was still having a little bit of minor brown spotting occasionally, but I was comfortable with that. I saw two OBs during the course of my loss, and neither one of them said a word about how long to wait, so I figured it wasn't a major issue.</p>

<p>I waited about a week with all of mine. A week from when the baby came out, about pretty much until I'd stopped bleeding. I lost my last baby sunday the 21st and we just had sex again for the first time last night; no issues. I personally don't care what anyone tells me about waiting after birth/loss; I just do it when I feel ready <span><img alt="hug.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/hug.gif"></span></p>
