My husband and I found out during our first OB appointment that we had no heartbeat and had miscarried. We were given 3 options-cytotec, wait for a natural m/c, or do a D and C. We chose cytotec and I started this process yesterday AM. Things were more painful than could be managed with the pain medication they prescribed and I ended up going to the ER. I have read some information online that made this sound like a somewhat typical response. I had a lot of nausea/vomiting and diarrhea and the experience was just awful. I ended up not passing the pregnancy and the OB on call suggested we go ahead with the D and C. I wondered if anyone here had a similar experience? I've had friends who had no problems at all except for the obvious cramping at home with Cytotec, but this wasn't my experience. Thank you for your responses and I'm sorry you all have been through losses of your own.
