My whole life I thought that the whole 'having a baby' thing would be reasonably straight forward. At age 27, my partner and I decided I would finish the pill and "see what happened". one month later after an unusually heavy period that carried on for 2 weeks (I, for some reason perhaps intuition?) took a home pregnancy test which to my confusion, came up with a faint 2nd line. My partner and I tried not to get excited, but how could we not? It wasn't long before we were told I had a right ectopic pregnancy, and was immediately operated on. I had never considered the fact that I could be one of those women who may not be able to have children and as devastating as it was, I never considered lightening would strike twice.
That was 6 months ago. It took me 6 months to finally get pregnant again only to have ANOTHER ectopic last week, this time losing the right tube. I've found this time around, I feel a little bit numb about the whole thing. I still have my left tube but have been told it has some scarring on it. I've been booked in to see a specialist in 6 months time. I'm really hoping I won't need IVF...so I guess let's watch this space... WISH ME LUCK.
