I'm so sorry to hear that. Definitely see your regular OB to confirm before you do anything drastic. That's not a very nice treatment. Did they say if there was any heartbeat? Ultrasounds are not always supper accurate and maybe they got their measurements off.

There are other options than D&C. Waiting for natural m/c and medical intervention like Misoprostol to speed up the natural process. Get a second opinion from your OB. A D&C will be over quickly, which is the main advantage, but it is also a serious surgical procedure that has risks.

I think it is different for everyone. I just finished miscarrying that started naturally at 8 weeks. I bled for over 1 1/2 weeks and it wasn't overly painful. I got headaches then a bit of cramping for 3 days where it lasted just a short while each day. But I didn't have a big cramping/bleeding stage like a lot of women do. I did get 800 mg Motrin and took that more for the headaches than the cramping. So if you do it naturally, just have some pain meds on hand.

Did you see your OB yet?

As you can probably tell, I've been posting here a lot! It's helped me to share, because it's easy to feel so alone with this. Few people you know IRL know what it's like.
