I don't know for sure (sorry I don't remember for certain) how long you have been in the process....

It is hard. I was told I would mc at 6wks as well & it was just before 10 before I did. I had cramping for about 3 days - really intense & on the third day I was tired of laying aorund, taking it easy - so I walked the house - A LOT - and paced & took brakes only when it got too intense. I actually think the movement helped my mc progress, much the way women say it helps in labor. The only thing is - you are probably staying fairly active I would think if you have kids to look after...so I don't know if it even applies to your situation.

My only advice is walking....and if that isn't helping - then I say do whatever you think is best. I'm with you though on the D&C - I tried to avoid it at every cost unless I HAD to because I don't like medical intervention when possible. I can handle pain, etc - it's that I am concerned about possible complications, etc. I don't trust Dr's very much these days.
