Re: Am I crazy to want a 'natural' miscarriage not induced by misoprostol?
I too, would like to offer my empathy for you in this sad situation. I would also like to avoid the harsh effects of such a medication if your body is able to progress through this without it. I would seek the advice of your doctor as to what to expect, and at what point would you need medical intervention. I would also prepare what ever you may need at home to go through this, as well as a support person to be with you. As long as you have a good understanding of what to expect, and when to seek help, I respect and understand you desire to do this as naturally as possible. I had a miscarriage at home once, and I did fine, although if I would have known it was coming, I would have had someone there with me to help me. I would also wanted to have a plastic sheet down, and supplies for the aftermath, such as pads and clean towels. I also kept the remains for my doctor to inspect to assure me that it was complete. Afterwards I would go in for an exam to make sure everything was ok.
Again, I am so sorry, and even writing this was very hard to do. We have to accept mother nature for knowing when to end a pregnancy, but it is still a hard thing to accept. Do you have a good support person near you? Please write back and let me know how you are, you are very brave.
