I'm so sorry you are going through this. I can't answer most of your questions but I can tell you about my experience. When I had my missed miscarriage my dr. prescribed me 2 doses of misoprostal. She said it often is not effective so that's why she gave me the second dose with instructions to take 24 hours later. She wanted to do a D&C if it didn't work after the second time. She is a very low intervention OB. Luckily it worked after the first dose.
I hope things happen soon for you so you can begin your grieving. I felt like I couldn't start that process until my body did it's work.
