Nothing yet. And no, they won't understand. They are very strict on how much time you can miss, especially in the summer courses since they are so condensed. So no matter what is going on I'll have to go to class.

I'm sorry you had to go through the same thing Izzie. How far along were you? I almost wish I was in the hospital for this at this point. No one seems to understand what I'm going through since they can't see anything wrong with me. So I'm expected to just continue on as normal even though I'm just falling apart on the inside.

I am so sorry. It can take up to 24 hours but should not take longer than that. Most doctors recommend 400 mg doses - so two pills vaginally every 4 hours and once you start bleeding take them orally. Usually 6 pills are as much as you will need but it's different for everyone. Occasionally doctors will prescribe 600 - 800 mg twice, about 8 hours apart but that is usually under supervision. Maybe ask if you should take a higher dose and try again? These pills work for about 95% of the population, but 5% will not pass a pregnancy with them. (These stats vary a bit. The clinic I worked for saw a failure rate higher than this - closer to 15% over 5 years - some not passing a pregnancy at all, some not fully passing the pregnanty. Some clinics report a failure rate of as little as 3%.)

I was 21+6 and gave birth after labour on 27th March. So difficult. Got to spend 9 hours with my beautiful boy Ben William. It has taken 4 weeks so far for the pm, but I should hear today and then we can go ahead with a funeral at our church. Look after yourself and take time to recover. I still cry now and think of him every day. Life will never be the same again.

What happens if it starts while you're in class? I really think I'd make them understand that under the circumstances you can't be in class. Have a doctor's note or something.
That's just what I would do.

If I miss another class I get dropped from the class. I tried talking to the teacher and there was no way around it. It's school policy. Miss 20% of the classes and you are dropped. Since this is a summer semester and such short classes I could only miss a total of 3.

I see my ob tomorrow. I called today and asked for another round of cytotec since it didn't work. They were so insensitive on the phone. First person I talked to kept interrupting me and when I finally got through to her that the cytotec was supposed to bring on the miscarriage she said, "What's that for? To get rid of your baby? Why?" I was just silent for a moment and then said, "Because my baby is dead. Good enough reason?" I was in tears at that point. I hate this office so badly. Anyway, they wouldn't prescribe another round of cytotec. I get to go in tomorrow and get bullied in to a d&c.

I went to the ob yesterday and was told they wouldn't prescribe another round of cytotec. Apparently they don't like prescribing it in the first place. I was told if my cervix was open she would prescribe methergine, but it was closed. So I was given two options... wait or d&c. After discussing it in depth I opted for the d&c. I hated the decision but I needed to know when it would be over. It was scheduled for this Friday.

Then, wouldn't ya know it, the miscarriage started today. I started feeling light cramps while in class, after class was over they started getting worse so I headed straight home. On the drive home they got really painful. When I got home the bleeding started. I called the cancel the d&c and told the girl I was cancelling because the miscarriage started. She asked, "So who told you you don't need the d&c anymore?" I said, "my body."

I'm sorry I didn't see your reply til now. I can't believe she asked that. No one has to tell you that you don't need it.

How are you feeling?

I feel much better now. It was super intense for a few hours. I was literally screaming in pain. I couldn't find any ibuprofen at all, so I had nothing to dull the pain either. It was horrible. But then I passed a HUGE clot (tissue maybe, I didn't examine it) and suddenly about 98% of the pain was gone. The bleeding stopped gushing too. Now it's like a normal period. So I feel much much better.

I'm sorry it was bad for a while. But glad you feel better now. I can't imagine what it was like. I was lucky not to have much pain, I guess.
Again. I'm glad you're feeling better now.

So sorry for your pain. It is so rough that we have to go though that on top of everything else. I had pethedine and morphine in the end. But just like you, as soon as Ben was born all the physical pain goes too. Now I just want to try all over again. Look after yourself and take time to grieve.
