That certainly could be a possibility....It is not safe to continue such pregnancies. There was yet another program that I saw that had a women that found out she was pregnant with twins....some time in the early stages of pregnancy she had major abdominal pain...went to doc said the twins where fine....she continued to have U/S and eventually when she was seven months in they found the third baby....out side the whom...placenta attached to the outside of the uterus and the balter. She was luck she did not loose any of the babies lives or hers.
Can this also be a fallopian tube pregnancy that can also rupture and I think is far more dangerous than an abdominal pregnancy?
One other cause of hcg levels without pg could be a pituitary tumor. Sounds scary, but a few stories I have heard over the years ened in success stories (not that this is the only possibility, just a thought, maybe something to get checked out).
It would be odd to be unable to find a sac, the most certainly looked all over, including various areas of the abdominal cavity. Be persistent, keep pushing until she finds an answer, if it is abdominal, it is dire. If it were tubal, most likely it would have ruptured by the point and the pain would be excutiating.
Good luck, keep us posted.
Some times when the when you have a tubal pg the tube will rupture and and you dont know what hit you till you are bent over in sweats from the pain. Tubal pregnancies CAN lead to abdominal pregnancies when the tube breaks....if the egg lands on something and still has the ability to attach itself that is how you get the abdominal pg.
Her pain was really bad when she got to the ER. To the point she almost passed out and they gave her morphine. The doctors searched her tubes really well and there is no sign of anything in them. I will have to do more research on a pituitarty tumor. Thanks for all the advice.
If there was a rupture, they would have picked up it with the u/s, her pain would not have gotten better and would have most likely gotten much worse. Ruptured tubal pregnancies can be fatal and if the pg had gotten to the stage of rupturing (typically past 6 weeks) there would have been enough to show a bright positive on any hpt. It is a very scary thing from what I understand.
Hopefully they will find a resolution soon, I know the waiting and wondering is brutal.
