natural miscarriage (update in post below- graphic)
I found out on Friday (9.5 weeks) that our baby had no heart beat. We had a strong heartbeat at 7 weeks, but the baby was measuring small, so we were concerned. I had a D&C in 2006 for a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks (baby died around 8 weeks), but I wanted to try to let the miscarriage happen naturally this time. I started mild cramping and light bleeding yesterday.
Is there anyone who's been through a similar ordeal? Do you know what I can expect? How long will I bleed before the miscarriage actually happens? How much is it going to hurt? I'm 10 weeks now, but the baby is measuring 7.5 weeks. I'm having some tightening along with the cramping now and a little more bleeding. Will I pass anything that's recognizable? Or just blood, clots, and tissue? Thank you for helping me with this. I'm a little nervous to go anywhere far because I don't know what's going to happen.
