I know it would be hard to tlak about but im really wondering. Is there blood? Does the water break and i pass the baby then the placenta, or do i pass it all at once? Is there a doctor there as i go along? Is it just like giving birth, with pushing and all? Do they let me see the baby after its born? My mom and dh is coming with me. I wont want my mom there if i have to actually push the baby out. I'll ask her to leave. I know shes there for support but i dont want to see here there.

Kira_lynn you will be about 7 weeks farther along than I was when I m/c. They will probably use the same medication though as they used on me. It was called cytotec and they place the pills v____ally up near your cervix. The medication is a prostaglandin and causes uterine contractions. I started having sharp cramps in about 1/2 hour after leaving the clinic. (In your case I'm a__suming they will have you in the ob unit). This m/c actually occurred about 4 hours later. I was told by the ob that it could take up to 48 hours for the medication to work. But the worst of it was done within 5 hours. It felt like I was giving birth (at least I think so) because it wasn't just cramps but a constant pain and/or bearing down feeling. It was painful but you can have pain medication to help. I hope I didn't scare you about this. Even though it wasn't pleasant, I'm glad I opted for doing it this way versus having a d & c.

No, thank you for your reply. I just didnt really know what to expect. I know that i get a private room in the labour&delivery ward and that it usually takes up to 20hours to deliver everything. I'll make sure i bring something to do...maybe the portable dvd player.

I was induced at around 18 weeks. Like littlenurse said, they used like capsules that they put up to your cervix. I had to have it done about 3 times before it worked, and in all honesty after the 1st lot it hurt like hell (I found that the most painful part). I was having contractions all night, then at 8:30 the next morning (while I was on the phone to my aunty) my water broke. I only had to push slightly, then the baby just slid out, then the placenta. I got to have my baby with me for a coupleof hours before they took him away for the autopsy and stuff. They also dressed him and took photos of him for me to keep(which I no longer look at, I put them away once I fell pregnant again). I was in the labour and delivery ward so I could hear all the other women having their babies, which was really hard to hear. Goodluck with everything. I also hope I havnt scare you.

Oh another thing I should probably mention is that your milk will still come in on the 3rd or so day. No one told me this and it came as a complete surprise. Your body just a__sumes you have delivered a healthy baby, therefore still provides you with the milk.

Thanks Sian1, that was super helpful. I read that it usually takes 13-20 hours. Im going to go with my mom and then my husband will come down a bit later (my choice) When i had a missed m/c at 13weeks (found out at u/s that baby was dead), I started at 3am with contractions and at 9am I had extreme contractions and pa__sed the clot/baby within about 10min. I was at home for this. Im hoping that i can get in early tho so that i wont be there super long. I will be in the labour& delviery as well and in a private room. I'm really upset about seeing the baby tho, I've been pretty strong about this whole thing, but that would just break me And my husband. A picture would be ok but i dont know if i want to see it. I did hear about the b___sts producing milk and that my doc suggested Cabbage leaves, one in each cup of my bra, and when they start to go soft to replace.
