Ectopic Pregnancy PokemonMaster Due December 6; TTC since Jan 2013; 2 angel babies; Riverside, CA, United States 143 posts

Hi girls,
i know many of us have gone through miscarriages.... but I was wondering if any one else has gone through an ectopic pregnancy recently or ever. I found on Wednesday that I was pregnant with a tubal pregnancy AND miscarrying a fetus in my uterus that had no heart beat (I was supposed to be 7 weeks... I had HCG levels of only 400).



Before wednesday, I had NO IDEA I was pregnant at all.... I had thought I had miscarried two weeks ago (odd enough my ultrasounds that day showed an EMPTY uterus). To my surprise I had TWO when they scanned again this wednesday and they were very visible! But no heartbeat in either one. :( I have since had a D&C and a surgery to remove both fetuses. :(



I am completely broken. I don't know what to think!

I had an ectopic pregnancy back in '08. I didnt know I was pregnant either, well I thought I was, I was positive that I was but nothing would show up on the tests at home or at my doctors office. My tube burst when I would have been just outside the first trimester. I needed emergency surgery to remove the pregnancy and stop the internal bleeding. I spent 3 days in the hospital. Physically it was so debilitating I ended up getting depressed and I still have problems coping with everything.



My ectopic was worse than any of my other miscarriages :-( I'm so sorry for your losses.

I was able to tell early on because I knew something was wrong. I kept telling my husband "something isn't right... something isn't right", and started having cramps. By the time I was in the hospital my heart rate started dropping and I was bleeding into my abdomen. :( (My tubes aborted the fetus out of the tube)



The loss is so hard on me, when i see children it makes me so sad, my heart grieves. My husband said the word "angel" and I felt like I was kicked in the chest... =(

I'm so sorry. I think our body has all these pregnancy hormones and then we dont, it messes with out emotions. And even if we werent positive we were pregnant we still kind of get attached to that life that was there.

i had an ectopic back in 98'. it was devestating. my tube had ruptured 2 months prior & i bleed for months. i had severe back pain & trouble using my left leg. i was 4 mths when it was discovered. when i was admitted to the hospital the sonogram showed internal bleeding & there was a baby alive with a good heartbeat. unfortunately he was not in my uterus. he had burrowed behind my uterus & was causing problems to my internal organs. my doctor said i was within a half an hour from dying from the internal bleeding. there was 9 inches of blood inside my abdomen, which she said shot past her head when she operated. i had emergency surgery, was in the hospital 4 days, lost my left tube & had to have a huge c-section scar. i was very depressed for months because my little guy was alive but he was not far enough along to make it. then four months later & after 2 months of paid leave i was able to get pregnant with my daughter. shes almost 14. miracles do happen. im sorry for your loss & i hope my story has helped you.

I'm also left with a huge vertical csection scar from my belly button to bikini line. It's s constant reminder of the life I was carrying. But I would be here today if I refused surgery. My son wouldn't have his momma and I wouldn't have my 9 month old.

I am sorry you had to go through that a loss is a loss no matter how small.



I also have a history of losses In 2009 I can't be sure of the month maybe july I had a miscarriage, I really didn't know I was pregnant until I was in the ER with extreme pain and heavy bleeding I was diagnonsed as having a spontaneous abortion. Then just 6 weeks later I was pregnant again I was so happy and I couldn't believe it, But that was short lived when I started spoting and discovered the pregnancy was and ectopic pregnancy I was treated with methotrexate which ended the pregnancy.



Last year in august I was pregnant again I was so happy I couldn't believe again I had another loss I was crushed but didn't want to go through it again I was to upset. That takes me to october what do you know I was pregnant again suddenly I had never been so angry I was htinking why tease me? why do I have to keep lossing my babies :( but I am now 19+2 weeks I have a scan next week and I can feel the baby moving growing ect.
Please keep your chin up I know how hard it must be for you, as I have had losses.

This is another depressing part of it all... I had mine removed laproscopically but I'll still have my three incisions (one on the left side of my stomach, one on the right, and one on my belly button). Plus I thnk I am scarring from an allergic reaction to one of the heart monitor stickers... if that's possible (sure looks like it!!!!)

I cannot imagine going through multiple losses at multple times :(. Must be comforting to see your baby to be growing in every scan :) I'm scared of going through more then one, especially since I do not know what caused my ectopic pregnancy yet. I hope in my two week check up they can tell me

I had



Ectopic (treated with Methro)
M/C
M/C
DD1
Ectopic (Ruptured at 7 weeks with no previous signs that it was another Ectopic)
DD2



My 1st Ectopic was in May of 06' and my 2nd Ectopic was in June 12' same side and my tube ruptured with the second so my tube was removed. We accidently got pregnant end of August. I never expected to have gotten pregnant that fast if anything I was scared I wouldn't be able to get pregnant with out it being a third Ectopic. I had absolutely no risks factors for Ectopics besides have a previous one but even so my doctor said I didn't even really have any scar tissue from the 1st one. My best guess is maybe that tube was malformed to begin with

I found out i was pregnant after 18 months of trying, i was over the moon and so was my boyfriend, we already had a holiday booked before knowing about the pregnancy, so the day before setting off on holiday i was taken into hospital with severe bleeding, i had a scan and there was nothing in my womb so i had an internal, and the nurse was worried about how much bleeding there was around my ovarie, and before i knew it i was getting rushed into theatre to get rid of my ectopic, and my right tube. It was all a daze and now that its starting to hit me (happened in january) its really getting me down about getting pregnant again, and sometimes i think having another baby wont cure the pain of losing one. After being to the doctors they said i could start trying again after one cycle, so now that we are trying again i keep getting my hopes up, and i keep doing pregnancy tests hoping they will be positive but really i know it will be negative and its all in my head. Worst pain of my life :(

We just found out last night our pregnancy is ectopic. It is so hard to end a pregnancy we wanted so bad. They treated me with meds and we are hoping it works. I can't afford for my tube to rupture since I only have one tube and ovary. I can't stop crying. I still have pregnancy syptoms reminding me of the baby. I'm scared and broken.
