A little background first. This was my first pregnancy and first miscarriage. It was a blighted ovum measuring 6 weeks. I found out last Tuesday at 10 weeks. My doctors wanted me to pass it naturally and so did I.
So this weekend on Saturday night I had som cramping and then a rush of blood, went to the bathroom and passed a lot of stuff and had a lot of blood for about 30 minutes and it was done. The blood flow lessened. I thought this was it. It wasn't so bad.
Then fastforward to Sunday night and I started getting waves of pain. I am guessing that's what contractions feel like. It lasted for 4 hours and then finally my miscarriage happened.
I would just like to say holy crap, I had no idea what to expect and it was painful and sucked. Every women who goes through this is amazing. If the physical pain of childbirth is anything like this I may rethink my stance on an epidural.
I'm wondering how many of you thought that the pain felt like contractions/labor? I know some women haven't had children yet, neither have I, but I can only assume that's what it was. It did not feel like just cramps.
