i am so sorry to hear of your miscarriage. pls take care of healing yourself and keep the faith -- it is quite surprising to learn how many people go through this. i've had 3 miscarriages (7 wks, 9 wks and 11 wks) but have 3 healthy children, too. my 7 wk miscarriage was natural but i took drugs to induce the 9 wk and 11 wk miscarriages after waiting over one week for it to happen naturally. as the ladies here have mentioned, there are pros and cons to each of the options: d&c, natural and drugs. for me, i didn't want any type of procedure done but i just couldn't wait (for what could be weeks) for my body to do it naturally. sorry, can't comment on confinement
