as strange as it is for someone who wanted so badly to have an unassisted pregnancy and birth, i think if i HAVE miscarried, i want a d&c. i had one with my first loss after waiting weeks and weeks for it to happen naturally. eventually i developed a nasty infection and complications so i'd rather get this over with quickly.
i'll update as soon asi know for sure. of course, this might be a while because i don't have a regular OB to see anymore since i fired mine in february of this year.
does anyone know if i have any other options? would urgent care or the emergency room be a bad idea? i'm only spotting minimally now, i fear they'll just tell me to go home and follow up with an OB. would i be better off finding a new OB just to confirm or deny my pregnancy? so confusing!
update: well, i still haven't seen a doctor yet (just my luck, our car broke down!) but i'm not spotting or cramping anymore. also, my boobs seem to weigh about 500 pounds each again which is a strange but relieving feeling. i still don't feel pregnant but i'm starting to think back and i really didn't feel too pregnant at eight weeks along with my first OR second pregnancy either. perhaps i'm just being paranoid? i'll update again when i know more. thanks for all the support, everyone!
I pray all is well with your baby.

I was just thinking of you and wondering how you are feeling today??
Trying to build up my house, not tear it down . Got 3 wonderful kids , blessed with a wonderful husband and have the privilege of staying home full time to enjoy it all!
I had so much spotting and cramping between 6-9 weeks that I was *SURE* I had miscarried. When I went in for a repeat u/s I was shocked to see a heartbeat. Say what you want about u/s. I think they are worth their weight in gold.
