At my appt decided to try the misoprostil to induce a misscarriage since it has been 5 weeks since baby stopped growing and 2 weeks since we found out. So wanted to describe my experience for those interested. Took 800 mg misoprostil vaginally at 3pm. Started having moderate cramps around 2 hours later. Did not start bleeding until 12 hours later and cramps have eased up a bit now. So far the process has not been bad at all. I expected a lot of pain but have not had to take anything for the cramps.

Not a nice thing to go through but glad the pain has not been too bad. Are they going to rescan you at all or are they happy that the mc is complete? (Sorry for the wording x)

Yes, it has not been a pleasant experience by any means but I was expecting it to be much worse. The cramps were only about 4/10 at first and once the bleeding started the cramps were very minimal. I am a little worried that I may have not passed everything, but I guess only time will tell. I am scheduled for a follow up appt in 2 weeks where they will check my HCG levels again. I'm not sure if they will do another scan unless my HCG level has not returned to 0 by then. I really hope I can avoid a d&c!

Still having some moderate bleeding and cramps 6 days since my misscarriage. Trying to patiently wait until the 12th when I get my HCG level drawn to see if it has returned to zero! Sure hope the bleeding stops soon and my cycles return to normal.

I bled for 6 weeks afterwards 🙁. Hope it stops for you soon and that your levels are back down

Hi I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a mmc at 13 weeks on my first . I'm so glad you have not had too rough a time with the whole process. To give hope I went on to have 2 beautiful babies after my mmc. It's so hard when it happens but it won't always feel like this xxxxx

I am so sorry to hear of your loss, but thank you for sharing, that is very reassuring! I am slowly emotionally healing but the thought of being pregnant again is scary right now because I can't imagine going through this again.

It is sad that experiencing a loss with your first pregnancy changes everything . It robs you of that pure innocence . I never in a million years expected to mc , things like that happened to other people . Going on to being pregnant the second time was a scary time . I don't think I breathed for the first 18 weeks but as tIme went on I relaxed and began to enjoy it . I survived by not thinking ahead .... Staying with the hear and now ... Small goals ... But before all that ..... Allow yourself time to grieve . It is so important . You have suffered a significant loss and are grieving like any other loss. It is no different . Be kind to yourself . Expect good and bad days . But hold onto the knowledge that some day in the not so distant future you will begin to have a " good day " with no tears and maybe a smile . Then one day you will realise you didn't feel angry today and are ok. Soon those good days will out weigh the bad . That ok .. It doesn't mean you will ever forget this lo. I remember my little one all the time, even now they are a special to me as the children I have here with me . That will never change . I will carry them as you will in my heart forever . One day and hopefully soon you will feel strong enough to try again and will be blessed with your rainbow baby xxxxx

Thank you for such kind words. They were just what I needed to hear! The thing I am struggling with the most was with having a MMC and the waiting knowing that my baby was already dead. I never knew that could happen. So there will always still be that fear in the future. But I am going to try to take each day one at a time and in my future pregnancy be grateful each day that I am pregnant! I say that now but will see what really happens! I tend to be a worrier so I am working on worrying less with everyday things too. Again, thank you for the encouragement!!
