I am (was) just shy of 10 weeks pregnant. Yesterday I went to see my midwife because of some light pink spotting. Long story short, one of the OBs did an ultrasound, and found that there was no longer a heartbeat and the baby was only measuring 8ish weeks.
I was offered a D&C, aa well as medication to induce a miscarriage, which I declined. I'm being "given" two weeks to allow the miscarriage to happen on its own, and I'm really struggling. I want to honor this baby with a gentle end, just like I would have in birth. In birth I would not use medication or surgery just because. And yet, I'm really struggling with the waiting. My understanding is that it will be a long, hard process, and that I will be able to see the baby. The surgical alternative, however, is even more devastating to me. M
Does anyone have any experience with allowing a miscarriage to unfold naturally?
