So, I'm back to charting sooner than I would have wanted... Based on advice I have read, the first day of the m/c is considered CD1, but now I'm wondering if the fact that Lucy is still bf'ing (every bedtime and every morning, with maybe once in between if she wakes up and wants to) not very much, but very consistently.. will that be likely to have an effect on my cycle? I'm thinking not b/c she's nursing quite a bit less than she was when I got pg and I know my milk had started to dry up. It doesn't seem to be coming back, either. I just didn't know if there is a protocol of some type. I'm sure it is a wait and see kind of thing, but any input would be welcome.

I'm so sorry for your loss

I have no idea how bf'ing will affect your cycles, but I wanted to offer my sympathy.

I'm so sorry.

Yes, the loss is considered CD1 - but as with any and every pregnancy (including an early loss), you have to re-stablish your Basic Infertile Pattern now. So dry (nothing felt/nothing see) is the only infertile observation for now. Anything else is considered potentially fertile. The loss itself can cause some irregularity, so it's hard to say just how much the BFing will also contribute. Just take it one day at a time.

Thank you, both of you. And thank you, Shawna, for the advice.

I don't have anything at all to add, but I hate to just read a post and not reply, because I want people to know I'm here.
