I went in for my u/s today and they couldnt find a heartbeat. So now I am trying to decide to go natural or D&C

Oh no, I'm so sorry, big hugs...

How far along are you? I have had two miscarriages, one at 9w4d and one at 9w6d. The first one I had a D&C, it was all done very quickly, they put me out, I had very minimal pain and bleeding afterwards. The second I did naturally, it was very painful, lasted much too long, lots of bleeding. If I ever had to choose again, I would go for the D&C in a heartbeat, but it seems to vary depending on how far along you are.

Forgive me for not recognizing your screen name, but were you a member of ttcam? If not it's a great place for support, full of wonderful women who are very knowledgeable and very supportive. Here's the link if you haven't already been there.

Best of luck to you...

I had a semi-natural m/c at 9w6d. They gave me misoprostal(sp) and that started the m/c after we could no longer find the baby on u/s and the sac had collapsed. They did give me pain meds which helped with the cramping.

I have never had a d&c, so I cant offer any input on that.

I just wanted to say again, I am so very sorry for your loss. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers...

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have to say that I have done both the natural miscarriage and the D&C, and depending on how far along you are, I definitely preferred the natural way (I was 8 weeks at the time). It felt cathartic and natural, instead of going to sleep and waking up without my baby. I didn't have a choice with mc #3 because I was almost 12 weeks and my body was not trying to mc at all. But if you are still early and if you are starting the process already on your own, it may be a better choice. Again,
