By 8 weeks we decided to terminate the pregnancy.
I took the second pill which is called misoprostol and instantly felt cramps. They were so intense I threw up. I panicked after because I lost all the pain and cramping and hadn't even began to bleed yet. I waited two hours and slowly started cramping again followed by this time clots and bleeding. I sat on the toilet for a total of 5hrs in tears it hurt so badly. Eventually the pain became so intense I drove myself to the hospital where I was greeted by plenty of no sympathy. I was contracting so badly I couldn't stay still for a pelvic exam so she gave me Vicodin and sent me on my way. I thought I passed it prior to being at the hospital I was mostly there for company and hopefully stronger medicine.
3 days went by and I had normal bleeding associated with it and cramping. I felt it was a part of the side effects so I didn't think anything of it. I thought my definition of "mild cramping" differed from planned parenthood and then on the 4th day I realized why.
On day 4 I didn't have much if any bleeding just strong cramps. I became accustomed to having a heating pad attached to my abdomen. Then on that evening I sat down with what I felt like clots coming out in the toilet and all the sudden out comes this lemon sized sac and a little fetus. It was easily to figure out what it was.
Anyhow, this medical abortion differed from any I've read about because I didn't pass it the day I took the misoprostol so take it into consideration when going this route. If it wouldn't have came out tonight tomorrow when I go for my follow up I'd have to been given a d&c anyhow. This isn't always the easiest way.
