Please help! MMC- meds not working
Discovered that my pregnancy is a missed miscarriage yesterday at my first scan. Should have been 8w2d confirmed by OPK and temp rise, but baby measured 6w4d and had no heartbeat. My Dr. gave Misoprostol to induce miscarriage. I took the first dose yesterday afternoon. Got the nausea, severe diarrhea, cramping and contractions... no bleeding. Since the bleeding didn’t start- I took a second dose 12 hours later (in the middle of the night). This time, same symptoms but much milder. Still no bleeding and it’s been about 7 hours.
Has this happened to anyone else? My previous missed miscarriage my Dr. (different dr.) inserted it vaginally, and the bleeding started within an hour.
If it doesn’t work, I’m worried I will have to have a D&C.
Anyone have any experience with the Meds failing? What was the next step?

Just wanted to say I am very sorry to read this. I have been on the boards for a long time now and was happy for you. I had a MMC several years back and had D&C, it wasn't bad and everything was over relatively quick. Can I ask if you had reduced symptoms or anything noticeable. I saw baby at 7 weeks an go next Monday at 11 weeks and I am just so nervous about having another MMC. If you dont want to discuss it I understand that too. Again I am sorry you are going through this again.

Semcglaun- at around 6 1/2 weeks (about when baby stopped progressing) my fatigue lifted and my boobs were much less sore, but still slightly tender. Those were the only symptoms I had, so I was very concerned when they let up. The same thing happened with my first MMC.
Missybev- my first pregnancy was a MMC as well- and dr inserted the same pills vaginally and it works so fast. This time it’s not. Hopefully my body catches this on its own. I would rather not have a D&C. But- I really want this pregnancy resolved so that I can get back on the TTC train and try for another
