HELP! Possible ectopic, advised to take methotrexate! Is there still hope?

Hi everyone, I am living my worst nightmare.  I didn't know I could hurt so much! :( I should be 6 weeks along on Tuesday, but my counts have not gone up.  Last Monday I was 532, then Wednesday only 830, then Friday 1032.  I have had bleeding since my pregnancy began and severe cramping over Memorial Day weekend, but no pain now.  My OBGYN thinks I have an ectopic, but since my counts are so low, we can't see anything on ultrasound.  She advised me to have a methotrexate injection to end the pregnancy, but I won't do that unless I know 100% that it is ectopic.  I know I am risking rupture and surgery, but I need to know for sure before I consider something like that.  Any advice??  I am hoping that when I go in for lab and an ultrasound on Monday that miraculously I will have a little baby with heartbeat in there... I know that's wishful thinking!  Otherwise, I wish that I would just miscarry if this is not meant to be.  I am devastated and terrified, but somehow hopeful...  has anyone had something like this turn around and end up ok????

An update... Today I have mild low back pain and mild cramping every once in a while. Should I be concerned?
