1 Bump

At 9 weeks I was told I had a blighted ovum and made the decision to wait and m/c on my own. I'm now 27 weeks and have not passed it on my own. Dr gave my misoprostol to help me get it started and it has been 3 days and nothing has happen. Anyone have this happen or heard about anyone who did?

  • Here's a tip: The box you typed all that in, is just for a brief summary of your question.

    The much larger box below that is where you type in all the pertinent information.

  • Honestly, find another doctor. Get a 2nd opinion!

  • I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination but something just doesn't sound right here. I agree with PGA, you need to get a 2nd opinion.

  • Do you look pregnant?
    Do you feel any movement?
    Have you passed any blood/tissue/mucus?

  • Have not had ultrasound since 9 weeks and no period since dec. 30, 2012. My hcg levels are droping just very slowly. Back in march I was going to the dr. Weekly for hcg levels then I was unable to go weekly. So I just started to go back to the dr. and the first time I went back around 3weeks ago she did hcg levels and she said they went down but not what she would have like to see for it being so long since I had them checked. Then told me that I might be pregnant again and told me to come back in a week. So I went back and the levels did drop some so she gave me the misporstol. And now 3 days later nothing has happen and dr. Said for me to get hcg drawn tomorrow and she will give me a second dose of misporstol.
