Heterotopic pregnancy! mommaXthree Due January 4 (boy); 35 kids; Milford, Ohio 1137 posts

This is what I had!! My cycle was messed up, had bleeding and pain for the past month. Well, to make a long story (somewhat) short, I was told I'd miscarry the 7+ week old non-viable uterine pregnancy (which I did on Thanksgiving night) only to end up in the hospital Thursday night with a near fatal ectopic pregnancy as well measuring 6 weeks. They hadnt detected this baby two weeks ago on ultrasound when i went in for right ovarian pain. Both babies were different gestational ages. Crazy! They said there's like a 1/1,000,000 chances of that happening, that's how rare it is. I'm currently in the hospital recovering. They had to remove the ectopic pregnancy, along with my right Fallopian tube. Thank God I've still got a healthy left one though and didn't bleed to death. My doc said it was the most massive tissue she'd ever seen in a tubal pregnancy and was shocked that my tube hadn't burst, which would have been really bad. I KNOW my body, and something wasn't right with the pain I was in. Always listen to your intuitions ladies and don't believe that doctors are always right! Just thought I'd share my story. Glad it's all over!

Thanks Hannah. Yeah, scared the shit out of me for sure. Originally I was under the impression they were twins, but they measured differently and the tubal one wasn't there in the beginning. They asked if I was on fertility treatments, which I wasn't, but I told them I did take plan b not knowing I was already pregnant, and they think that could have triggered my hormones to ovulate a second time and get pregnant with the tubal one. I should have taken a pregnancy test before the plan b just to be safe, but I wasn't planning on already being prego. I hope I didn't do anything to kill them :( even so, I'll never know...glad to be alive though! I can't imagine leaving my kids parentless. That's the only thing that was running through my head.

plan b says it wont terminate and already exhisting pregnancy, but I really dont know. If anything ever happened to you, and the kids were left, even though i know you have the best famimly and lots of help and support i would probably have to move back up there.. just so i could be there too. your family im guessing is keeping the kids?
how did you know something was wrong and to go to the hospital? what clicked and made you come in?

Yeah my mom stayed with the kids the last two nights while I was in the hospital. I'm finally home today. I had been feeling this really sharp pain in my right ovary and was bleeding, but my doc just chalked it up to me miscarrying. Well the pain came and went, and worse each time. Thursday I was stuck on my stairs and couldn't move, crying in so much pain. I called 911 and they had to put me on the stretcher in the house bc I couldn't move it was so painful. I just KNEW something else was going on bc I was only feeling pain, unbearable pain, on one side. And all of my pregnancy tests were still super dark even after I passed the uterine pregnancy last week. I did find out yesterday my levels were rising, which they shouldn't have been if I miscarried, hence the ectopic pregnancy. Scary shit.
So now I'm going on the pill FOR SURE. My doc said IF I get pregnant in the future, I will need really early routine ultrasounds and all throughout pregnancy because I'm high risk with one tube now and have a greater risk of having future ectopics now. I still wan at least one more soi am going to do whatever I need to do to take care of my body and no more frickin plan b...I swear I think that screwed everything up. It might not have killed my existing fetus, but I def think it had something to do with the second ectopic pregnancy.

Yeah, Ricky knows about everything. He was kinda sad and was looking forward to the baby/babies but I nearly died. Definitely wasn't meant to be. I can go on to have perfectly healthy pregnancies...just have to monitor them and make sure they implant in my uterus. She said if I have another ectopic and its not caught right away, my other tube will prob need removed and then I'm done having kids. So the birth control will at least ensure no accidental pregnancies, putting me at risk for missing a pregnancy. I plan on just staying on the pill until I find the right person and decide the time is right for another. This whole shit with Ricky needs to blow over or be resolved. He's getting help now, but we'll see. I doubt he'll change,but ya never know. I'm just going to focus on myself and my babies. I want to enjoy every moment with them...never know when it could be my last. We really have no clue.
