Hi there- thanks for thinking of me. Yes, I did use the cytotec. Physically it wasn't as bad as I thought. Definitely glad I had vicodin. I took last Friday off work, and inserted the first dose vaginally that morning. My husband worked from home just in case I needed someone. It took about 5 hours for the first major cramping to start. The cramps became very deep in the early evening, but were not excruciating.

Emotionally I'm still recovering. I think my emotions just sort of softened and dulled for the day, so I could focus on letting my body do what it needed to do. I'm not squeamish about body stuff, really, so seeing blood and tissue was not horrific for me. In a way, I felt awed about all my body had created in just 6 short weeks.

The one thing that was unexpected was that I was still passing quite a bit of blood (not scary levels, but more than period bleeding- changing pads every 1.5-2 hours or so) and passed tissue in the bathroom at work on Monday. The bleeding lessened a LOT after that- but I passed some more tissue this past Friday, a full week after using the cytotec.

I did take some of the tissue to the doctors office, so they can try to test it. They said it's unlikely they'll be able to get enough cells to grow and test, since it had been more than 3 weeks since the baby stopped growing. But I still wanted to try. Heck, archeologists just found King Richard III buried under a parking lot in London from 800 years ago, and they were able to find HIS dna. Seems like they should be able to find something from me.

Just to clarify, I posted one reply, which contained a pretty thorough description of my cytotec process, and it seems to have been flagged for review by moderators- probably was too graphic in describing the step-by-step. Basically, the very short version is that physically it wasn't as bad as I thought, and I'm doing okay. Not great, but I'm functioning.

*HUGS* I'm glad the physical wasn't too hard... sometimes that makes the emotional even harder.
