I am sorry for your loss. This is a difficult thing to go through, especially having had a previous loss. Several years ago, I went in for an U/S at 8 weeks and was told the baby was gone. My doc actually never even asked me if I wanted a D&C, she just gave me some info, sent me home, and told me to call if I had any questions, problems, or discomfort. I did not want a D&C, I wanted to do it naturally, that was my personal choice. It did take 3 weeks to happen, though, and that time was difficult. I took time off work and felt like I couldnt leave the house, just in case something happened. But, I was grieving, so I was ok being home most of the time. Finally, the day it happened, I started having cramps a few hours ahead of time, and I sent dh and ds (who was 8 at the time) out of the house. I wanted to be alone, wanted privacy, and did not want our dc there. Looking back, I probably should have had someone home with me, in case there was a problem. It took a couple of hours of sitting on the toilet with cramps and blood and clots coming out. I laid in bed until I felt like I had to go back to the bathroom. There was alot of cramping, but it was managable. When I felt like it was done, I called dh to come home, and he did. I had very little, light bleeding for a couple of days after, like a period, but that was it. For me, it pretty much all happened at once. It was much more painful emotionally than physically. I am glad I let it happen naturally, it was the right choice for me. I wish you luck and again, am so so sorry.
