Body changes after second trimester loss

Postby justxher » Thu Jul 16, 2015 4:59 pm

Hi all, I am wondering if any of you have had a second trimester loss and how long it took for your body to recover? It's been 2.5 weeks since we lost our little boy and I am still bleeding quite a bit even though the baby and placenta were both delivered intact. Is this normal, am I just bleeding out the lining? Also my uterus seems to have shrunk back down but I haven't lost a single pound despite eating far less now and eating healthier, is this hormone related or am I doing something wrong? I really just want my body to go back to normal because all these things are just painful reminders of our son.
