I'm sad to have had to find this page...but also glad to know there is somewhere since this is our 3rd loss. Yesterday we went for a follow up OB appt at 11w2d, only to find out the heart and growth had stopped sometime in the week after our first ultrasound (which was the first time we'd ever seen a heart beat). In my two previous miscarriages, my body was able to do it naturally. Since it has been about 3 weeks since the baby stopped growing / heart stopped, my OB wants us to consider cytotec or a D&C. Has anyone had experience with both? What would you do if you had to do it over again? I know everyone is different...even my two previous losses were different (first was at about 9wks, was incredibly painful and scary; 2nd was at 6.5wks, and didn't seem like more than a normal period). I'm worried about the risk of hemmorhage with the cytotec...especially since I've been on progesterone suppositories to help things along, but also worried about a d&c. Any advice? Thanks...
