Hi girls. I've been browsing the website since my ectopic and have found it so helpful. I've just found out I'm pregnant again. Just 4+2 at this stage, so it's really early days. We're very nervous but still hopeful. Had a miscarriage at 7 weeks before the ectopic, so I'm hoping it's third time lucky!! We booked a family holiday with our two year old and are due to fly at 5+6. Has anyone done this, or is there any additional risk or advice I should know?
Also, I'll be going to the doctor this week. I'm hoping he'll take bloods, but when I was in for my check up after the ectopic the hospital told my they weren't reliable and no point in taking them. What have others done? And last thing, if I were to book a scan in the epu at 5+5, the day before we're due to fly would this be too early? Thanks for taking the time to read this!
I'm so annoyed. Just been to the doctor and apart from looking at me like I was mad for going in so early, I didn't get bloods taken. The gynea reg won't book me for a scan in the epu until after I get back from holidays. I really thought I'd be able to get a scan at 5+5 just to comfirm the pregnancy is in the womb. Am I being unreasonable?
Congratulations, hope all goes well. No, you're not being unreasonable in my opinion. I had scan at 5 plus 6 and ectopic and in utero pregnancies seen. My consultant has said if I get pregnant again to come straight in as soon as I know and he'll do a scan. Hopefully all is well but it would be good to get reassurance. Good luck
Ah so sorry you are not been seen, of course you can see if the pregnancy is in utero at 5+5 I can guarantee you this. There is no problem with flying and definitely you could have gotten the bloods done, I am so so annoyed for you, can you check a different hospital?
