So I found out on the 23 of June that I was pregnant. We were TTC so we were very excited. But on July 2 I started spotting and cramping. That lasted for over a week all while my levels kept rising.. Until July 10 I went for an ultrasound and they couldn't find a baby. The tech said it possibly looked to be in my tube but she wasnot sure so I was instructed to call with any severe pains.. I went to the ER Friday morning for severe pain on my right side. They did some tests and found it was in fact an ectopic pregnancy and my right Fallopian tube ruptured so they took me right to surgery. She had to remove the right tube and suction the blood from my stomach as I was bleeding internally. but both ovaries and the left tube are perfectly healthy. I'm still in a state of shock dealing with everything. It's just an insult to injury. Not only did I lose the baby but I lost my tube and am having to recover from surgery while my fiancé is in Minnesota for training until the 27 and while taking care of my 18 month old who I just want to hold and snuggle but am not allowed to pick him up. Luckily I can still nurse through all of this. I'm just wondering If anyone's been through something similar and gone on to have healthy pregnancies/babies in the future?
so sorry for your loss! i'm afraid i haven't experienced this but i have experienced a loss and its horrific. a life changing experience . my heart goes out to you and i hope that once you are all healed up that that left ovary does you proud! ; ) (that is to say if you are still up to trying)
Thank you. It is hard dealing with loss but my son is the light during all of this. We're going to try to again once the dr says its ok. And hopefully still having both ovaries but only one tube won't affect it too much
I had a ecotopic pregnancy when I was 14. I didn't loose a tube, but It did scar. Then I wad told that my right overy had stopped working. However, im now.16 weeks (at 21 thank goodness) and so far its perfect. I was really sad when I found out it.was an ecotopic pregnancy...even at 14. My family cheered while I mourned and it was one of the hardest things to over come.
Laylo_seeds I'm sorry you went through that. Especially so young. I'm glad you are expecting again and that things are going well! That gives me hope.. Louieforlaughs thank you! Somehow your children are really the only ones who are able to comfort you through this.
I am sorry I didnt see this post earlier, I suffered an ectopic last year. Horrific. I managed to save my tube as I was only 5 weeks when they discovered it, I had to have an injection I then went on to have a hsg scan (ink to check tubes) and got the all clear in march. I am now 5 weeks again and really petrified as they are yet to find the pregnancy sack, had my 1st scan yesterday. I wishing u all the health and happiness. Please don't be sad that wasn't your baby xxxx
Pmummy congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm praying all goes well for you and you have a healthy 9 months. I'm just terrified when we are able to start trying again that it's going to take a very long time to conceive. And of course the fear of this happening again is always going to be there.
Thanks so much Djan2011 its a scary time. If we hadn't of had the ectopic originally I wouldnt be panicking at all now, i would just be waiting for my 12w scan as I have no symptoms of ectopic. You have to stay positive and have the hsg scan done as it put my mind that little bit at rest. Best of luck and stay happy xxx
