I had an ectopic in feb. It took me almost a year to get pregnant and I was devastated. I came off my bc last month and just found out this morning I'm pregnant. I am terrified. Completely afraid of what's going to happen. I have all the symptoms of pregnancy like the last time and that even has me more concerned. Have a doc apt at 4 today to see what the next step is. Anyone with advice I would really appreciate it. Only for this forum over the past few months, don't know what I'd do.
Hi Sally that's great news, congratulations! Hope the doctor's appointment was useful and he referred you for an early scan and bloods? If he didn't, ring the EPU yourself and explain. Ideally they should do a scan at about 5-6 weeks at the latest, as well as bloods - these can be done before the scan and are to check HCG levels are rising as they should. The very best of luck and keep us posted. x
Thanks for your reply. Here sitting on trolley in a&e with pains not bad pains but pains none the less. Hcg is at 500. I'm dreading the next few days. Is history going to repeat itself. Also had an internal done and was in a lot of pain ESP on the left side. Sorry for the ramble but just dont know what to do. Could there be another loss 6 months after the last one. It's just not fair. They won't scan me till the morning as no one available but would they even see anything with levels at 500 even with tv scan
Thanks for reply I'm 5 weeks. Last period on the 19th July. Just had one hcg level done so far. Had a scan this morning seen a sac I think but that was it. Level yest was 500. The consultant told me to have surgery today and I was in shock agreed with him but when I was downstairs ready to go in another doc spoke to me and said to leave it another 24 hours check levels again tomorrow I cried with happiness but not petrified too.. What do u think this all means is there hope for me. I hope my leavels double and more by tomorrow I'm just praying.. Xxx
Did you have surgery the first time? Which side was the ectopic the first time? 500 is a bit low for 5w1d but still in the range (I also always have low hcg even with normal pregnancy), sometimes with ectopics you may see a pseudosac, but not always. We can only hope for the hcg to double tomorrow. No need to rush surgery if u are stable, how is the pain level? Are you bleeding?
In feb I just felt like I had a kidney infection they couldn't locate preg. I was given methotrexate. Plus I havent had a pain since I came in. No bleeding the only thing I feel is a bit of pressure. Also a little green discharge.. Other than that I'm fine. The wait is just awful for next bloods.. Wish they would just come and do them. Thank you so much for taking time out to reply just sp nervous at this stage. Any little hope and I'm clinging to it. X
Hi girls I did reply but looks like it never came up. The good news is I'm HOME. The even better news is my levels went up to 1020. I nearly fell of the bed when I was told. I may have terminated the pregnancy yesterday. SOmeone was definitly looking down on me. My next scan is on Monday. I really hope they find something to put my mind at ease. Thanks so much for all the support for the past few days it's great to have someone to talk to. Xxx
Oh Sally this is the best news!! i'm so so delighted for you!! I'll be keeping everything crossed for a great scan on monday, the doctor that would have rushed you into surgery would need some right talk to be done to him. Keep us posted please!
Thanks again to both of u for all ur help. Scan Booked in for the morning early. I'm still worrying. I think it's going to be part and parcel of this whole thing. I'll let u all know the outcome. Thanks again for the replies
