Miscarriage

So I went to the dr this morning and he saw a fetal pole measuring 5.5 weeks when I should be 7.5 weeks and the baby should be starting to develop. He gave me some medication to help the process along but I'm waiting until the weekend to use it and really hoping I naturally start miscarrying before then. At this point I just want it to all be over so I can move on. I'm kind of scared about what to expect next. Has anyone ever been in this position? I've never miscarried. And had anyone ever taken misoprostol to aid in miscarriage? I'm waiting until the weekend because the dr said it would cause severe cramping.

Thank you. Honestly, this pregnancy was such a surprise and everything has happened so fast I haven't really had time to process everything. Like I said, I just at this point want it to be over and done with so I can move on.

God bless you , and god bless your baby . You should call your obgyn to get more info. I had one before and I honestly don't know how to explain but I'm sure your OB can .

Have you had any bleeding and do you have a regular cycle?

Before taking the meds ask for a rescan in a week or 2. You could be off on your dates. It could be to early yet. No good dr would give you abortion pills so early without a second scan.

AND yes I have taken them and it was scary. I lost a lot of blood and passed out. They are ulcer pills that Dr's use for abortions. I found out I miscarried at 8.5wks went for rescan at 10 weeks no change so I chose pills over dnc at 12wks bc no signs of my body doing it naturally

Thanks for all the support. I actually have been wondering if it was too soon to just assume im going to miscarry. It seems too early to me to know for sure. I don't want to be foolishly hopeful either so thank you for sharing your stories. At this point my HCg is increasing appropriately and I still very much feel pregnant, morning sickness, nausea, appetite loss, extremely exhausted. I haven't had any bleeding.  The last 4 months or so my periods have been completely irregular so I'm not exactly sure of when I ovulated. It's entirely possible for it to be off by a few days. I'm going to not take the meds and just wait for my follow up visit with my dr in two weeks. If there hasn't been any change at that point I will choose a d and c. I've heard from several women they felt other than naturally miscarrying, a d and c is easier in the body than the medication. i am very aware that it really  could go either at this point and I want to be realistic. I don't want to rush to end the pregnancy if there is a chance my baby will make it but I'm also praying with everything I have in me that if this baby really truly isn't meant to be ill start naturally miscarrying and soon. Thanks again for the support and encouragement.

I made an appt for a second opinion for early next week. I recently switched insurance plans so I had to switch to a new dr as well when I did that. I made an appt with my former Dr and will just pay cash for the visit. She delivered my two previous babies and I trust her opinion and medical knowledge.
