Fear Of Additional Ectopics...Hello everyone,
I had my first and only pregnancy exactly a year ago and it was an ectopic. I started to bleed and cramp but according to my Dr. It was not uncommon. As I continued to bleed and have pain the Dr did an u/s and more bloodwork and after a trip to the Er confirmed my ectopic. They gave me one methotrexate aka burning lava shot while I was there. A week later I got bloodwork which indicated that the shot didnt work. They gave me a second lava hot methotrexate shot. That too did not decrease my hcg enough so I had to have my ectopic surgically removed. I lost a month of my life to pain and misery.
Cut to Oct. 31st of this year. I find pregnant again. What should be a time of happiness has turned into terror. I keep thinking of how terrible it was last year and how my odds for another ectopic are increased. I am having some pain on the same side as my ectopic was but have no bleeding. I have to wait 5 days until my next scan which will make me at 5 weeks. I am terrified. I don't want to go through that again... The pain, the emptiness of waiting in a sonogram waiting room with couples who are watching their healthy babied grow; while I watch the progression of the death of mine. The sadness in other peoples eyes for you.
Has anyone out there had healthy babies after an ectopic? Any ladies who have had multiple ectopics have any advice on coping? Thanks in advance.
