First AF/Cycle Days after D&C?
I'm a little confused about this. I keep reading that if you have a miscarriage, you count that as AF, right? What about if you had a D&C? I had my D&C on March 16th and stopped spotting completely exactly a week later, on the 23rd. If I count from the day of my D&C it would be 35 days (5 weeks)already, but 28 days (4 weeks) from the day the spotting stopped.

I guess I'm just getting really anxious for AF to show up, like NOW, lol :D

I just want to feel normal again and move ahead!!!

Ok, so technically when you naturally miscarry or have a D&C or whatever isn't considered CD1 or AF. However you can call it that for charting reasons. Also, it commonly takes 6-8 weeks, or even more for your next cycle to start after a miscarriage. I know it stinks, but it's just a waiting game from here until CD1. I'm pretty much in the same boat here. It's a really frustrating wait until the next cycle.

Re: First AF/Cycle Days after D&C?
Unfortunately, I've had both so I can tell you what has happened to me. I don't know if I'm typical or not but here goes:

After my natural miscarriage my next AF started exactly 28 days after the miscarriage started. That AF was normal.

I had a D&C for a missed miscarriage that occurred 12 days prior to the D&C. I spotted for 6 days. I had one day of spotting once a week for 3 weeks after the spotting ended. Exactly 28 days after the D&C, I started bleeding consistently, for 8 days. I called it my first AF.

I used OPKs to track my cycle length. As of yet I haven't Od, so I think my cycle is still off. I think it's normal for things to be off the first few months. I know what you mean when you say you just want things to be normal.

My doctor told me for charting purposes I could count the D&C as CD1 - I hope AF shows soon for you!!
