My Story

Me and my boyfriend have been trying to have a baby for over 3 years and it finally happened Jan 19th 2010. I was sooo excited and happy but unfortunately I started bleeding 2 days later and I went to the hospital and they took my HCG levels (pregnancy hormone levels) and they told me to come back in 48 hours to see if they went up. Up meant I was still pregnant down meant I lost it. So I went back and it went up but not as much as they wanted it to. After that I went back every 48 hours for the next 6 days and still the numbers were going up but not doubling like they were supposed to so they sent me to my OBGYN and he just looked at the paper the ER gave me and said I lost it and walked out of the room without even looking at me but I still had question and I didnt feel like it was quiet over so I decided to see a female OB hoping she would have more sympathy even though the male OB advised me her answer wouldnt be any different... So I made an appointment that day and saw her the next day.  She ordered more tests and sat there and answered all my questions which helped me more than she know. Well that same night I started to experience severe pain in my left lower stomach.  I went to the ER the next day and they told me I had an ectopic pregnancy.  I was admitted to the hospital the next day to remove my left ovary and fallopian tube.  This was just 2 days ago (2/10/2010). Im only 23 and everyone is telling me I have plenty of time to try and have a baby but what they dont understand is that is what I want to do with my life. Some people were born to be doctors some lawyers but me, Im supposed to be a mom. Thats all I ever wanted and now I feel like its never gonna happen.  I've been so depressed and not to mention in pain since the surgery. I dont think people appreciate their kids as much as they should. I just want my baby back....

I understand how you feel. I have been trying to get pregnant for 4 years. I had a HSG done to see if my tubes were clear and I was going to start the fertility treatment clomide on the first day of my next period. When my next period was late I took a pregnancy test and when it came back positive my husband and I were elated. It is a miracle!<br />
Now I am 5 weeks and 1 day pregnant and I can't help but feel that maybe I have an ectopic pregnancy. On my left side I feel slight cramping, I sometimes also feel it on my right side, but not as often. Not sure if that is normal or not. I haven't had any spotting or bleeding.<br />
I have been just praying for a healthy pregnancy.<br />
I wish you all the blessing of a child soon.

i know how you feel! i hope all is well for you in your future x
