Hi there, hoping you could ease my mind. Appreciate any support at all. Basically I’ve had a terrible year, miscarriage early Feb, ruptured ectopic end of April which resulted in my tube been removed. In October I had a lap and dye due to endometriosis. Just found out last Friday I was pregnant so I rang the early pregnancy unit today and they won’t see me until 6 weeks. I’m absolutely up to my eyes with anxiety. I have mild pain on my left hand side the last couple of days which is on and off. No other symptoms. Has anyone had this and in turn went out to find out all was in the right place?
I so so completely understand what you are going through. How far along are you? 4.5 weeks? I would definitely go to the GP and have bloods taken for HCG values and you do it again in 2 days time (timing is important) and see if they double and the values. If this is going well then you have a bit more faith this is a good pregnancy. You can insit also for a bit earlier than 6 weeks, all you need to see is the sac in the uterus, at this point you are not worried about heartbeat (that's why they don't want to see you before 6 weeks, sometimes 7 weeks they say). In all my pregnancies, ectopics and not (I had two ectopics and then two good ones), i had pains on my side, i cannot tell you if they were real when the pregnancy was good, but for sure i felt pain even then and at that time for me it felt exactly the same as the ectopic. Once the scan put my mind at ease then it was all good.
