Waiting for a natural miscarriage and don't know what to exp Momma to one 17 kids; Idaho 12 posts

I am supposed to be 11 weeks pregnant. I went into the doctor for an ultrasound 4 days ago only to find out my baby had no heartbeat and was only the size of an 8 week old. I was told I have three options but prefer to go through this naturally. It appears that the baby would have died 3 weeks ago. The doctor did not say though. I don't want a D&C because I have a friend who had one and has too much scar tissue and now is having troubles getting pregnant.
I have several things going on in a week and a half and am worried that nothing will happen before then.. at this point I feel normal and have no bleeding yet. What should I do? Is there anyway to trigger it using a natural herb or something other than drugs? Thank you in advance!

i chose the pills last month, that you have to insert inside of you. it was one night of pain in my own home. I am very sorry for your loss. I'm not sure if you don't use anything how long it may take. But the bleeding (when it starts) is a sing its starting to happen.

I had a D&C 2 years ago and I am pregnant now. I went through a natural miscarriage for 12hrs and still needed a D&C the next day because my body decided to stop miscarrying halfway through. You gotta be careful because you can easily get an infection if they baby doesn't pass naturally. A natural miscarriage is extremely painful and I will warn you that you will bleed a ton and have alot of huge clots. Its extremely draining physical, mentally, and emotionally. I wish you the best

Sitting in the shower helped me tremendously. It helped with the pain and kept me relaxed. Sorry about your loss, I hope everything happens quickly for you :(
I was 9 weeks, and it took two weeks for anything to happen after we found out.
