Surprise! It's An Ectopic!

I didn't even know I was pregnant... not until I passed some tissue that resembled the tissue from the miscarriage I'd had 4months earlier! I called my doc and he said it should go about how my first m/c did. So I sat back and prepared for the 2wk period w/ bad cramps. But it didn't happen that way.

2days later I started having VERY painful pressure in my abdomen. I thought I was constipated. I just couldn't GO! So I figured I'd go to bed, and get some laxitives in the morning. At 3am I woke up with the pain VERY bad. I felt sick and dizzy. I tried to go to the bathroom again, but this time it hurt too bad to try. Then I started feeling like I would pass out. I went into the office to tell my husband I was sick, but fell in the kitchen. My husband came and found me shaking and pale. He said he'd call 911 but I said no cause we couldn't afford an ambulance for constipation! Haha! But I was getting worse so he called anyway. The ambulance came and only then did I remember that all this could be a complication of my miscarriage. So I told the paramedics. They told the doc at the ER and they did an ultrasound. I'd had a tubal pregnancy rupture. I was bleeding to death and all the uncomfortable pressure was from the collected blood in my abdomen that had no where to go! So they did emergency surgery and removed my left tube. Some how there was no fetal tissue found. No baby. Another blighted ovum, this time in a bad place.

My family was all there the first time I regained conciousness. I was in and out for the whole day following surgery. Then I woke up that midnight and the nurses came in and made me sit up. I fainted from the pain. Then my mom came in the next day and nursed me back to health. She's a great nurse and I got to go home the third morning! (^_^)

We're trying again, no matter what!

You have such courage! I am so glad you are OK. I wish you the very best and I hope that you have a healthy pregnancy and a beautiful baby.

Yeah. I've been preg. 4x's but only have 2 babies. My oldest is 5 and my youngest is 2. They were both planned, but this third one isn't following the plan! It's like baby comes, then changes his/er mind and goes "back" then I miscarry the "leftovers"! Frustrating and painful.
