We found out on Friday at our 6.5 week u/s that it is a blighted ovum. We go back on Wed for a confirmation and then I will take pills to induce m/c. This has been such a difficult few days. I hate the waiting, I kind of feel like a ticking time bomb. And then I have so much anxiety about the actual m/c because I have no idea what to expect. I'm glad to have found this board - it helps to "talk" to others who have been through similar situations. Thanks for being here.

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. I know how hard it is to wait...but the ladies on this board are here for you. It's a great place to seek information, get support, and to just let your feelings out. I know someone who just recently had to take a pill and she had the baby come out the next day and then she bled for a few days. So that's probably what you can expect also...It will not be easy, but know that we are all here for you!

I'm so sorry. I don't know what to expect from the pills, except I know some people who had really bad side effects. I hope all goes well for you.

FYI - you certainly don't have to take the pills. You can always wait to m/c naturally as long as you don't have signs of infection or heavy bleeding. I know lots of people just want to get it over with, though.

This web site has lots of info:

Hugs. I had a blighted ovum at 9wks, and waited a few weeks to miscarry and then had a d&c. It was awful just waiting for who knows what. My doc had me wait exactly one week btw u/s to better compare any growth, etc. He also did blood draws to see what was going on with the beta levels. It really dragged things out, but did help with closure. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You came to a great place for support.

A bit TMI.........

I had a missed m/c at 10 weeks on and was given the meds to induce. It wasn't as bad as what I would assume a D&C is like (I haven't had one of those). I was given the meds and then a script for pain meds, sent home to wait it out, then went back the next day for an u/s to make sure it had worked. There was never anything that looked like a baby, just clots. I bled a lot and kinda heavily for a few hours, but not enough to use a heavy pad an hour (you shouldn't bleed heavily enough to do that). I bled off and on for about a week, then 25 days later AF came. The meds I was given basically dilate the cervix and sort of cause labor, not exactly the same of course, but I did have a lot of cramping. The second day I cramped more than the first, but took some of the meds and went to sleep. I spent those two days watching movies in my p.j's with B/F. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Sorry you have to go through this,

A D&C isn't nearly as bad as I expected it to be. It was much easier than the waiting and not knowing.

You just have to do what is best for YOU. I wanted to do it naturally because I think that is better for me physically. But, emotionally, I couldn't have done that. The D&E helped me just go ahead and let go, and begin to heal.
