I wanted to give an update as I didn't find many on here but I did find a lot of detailed stories online that helped my husband and I prepare so if you don't want details pls stop reading. We were 11.2 weeks and found out the baby stopped growing at 8.5 weeks.
The hardest part was taking the pills Friday night. You feel like you are choosing to do this but in reality it's already been done. We chose this route to have the privacy of dealing with such a difficult situation in our own home and the fear of surgery/being out under. I was also given Tylenol 3 which was much needed. I went to bed and woke up at 1 am with terrible waves of cramps that didn't let up for about an hour or so. I took more Tylenol and used a heating pad that seemed to help. I then passed out til 8 am when it started. I slept with a towel under me just incase. I passed alot that morning And it then slowed up a few hours later. There was no pain or cramping. I spent most of Saturday in bed as the Tylenol also makes you tired. I took the second dose Saturday night and woke myself every hour to check on everything and there wasn't any pain or spotting. Sunday was a light day as well. I've read it can several days or a week to pass everything. I think I've still got a long way to go and hope its all gone when I go back in two weeks.
Be careful with the Tylenol or any pain pills - I missed the side effect of constipation that was the worst I've ever had adding I insult to injury.
I hope this helps you if you're faced with this decision so you can decide what's best for you and your family. My only take away that makes me feel at peace is that I know we can get pregnant and keep the pregnancy. I will be going back to acupuncture to help get my body back to normal ASAP.
