@flyinhigh thank you for posting this because i just had my 2nd ectopic a few months ago and had my right fallopian tube removed and i also had some endometriosis that my surgeon removed while he was in there. it's taken a long time, but i'm getting to the point where i'm starting to forgive myself and and really want to ttc again. i've been having some symptoms the past week and i've got my fingers crossed and hoping that from now on there will be nothing but luck coming my way even if this isn't my month.

In the september 11 i unfortunately lost my baby at 8 weeks. After vaginal bleeding i had a scan at a epc which showed a very early sac. Not long after i miscarried however my hormones kept rising and symptoms were getting worse. After many blood tests and scans they finally found an epotpic in my right tube very close to my ovary. I had had a psudogestational sac which was what i thort i miscarried. I was rushed into surgery and had my right tube removed. My other tube look fine but they did find endometriosis while they were in there. I was really worried about being able to concieve again but after waiting 2 months to heal on the 3rd month i was pregnant. l as i knew what side i was ovulating from i got pregnant straight away. I am now just begining my second trimester so keep up hope it is possible!!!! xx

Hello ladies, here is my story. In 2005 I had a miscarriage, in 2007 I had a beautiful little girl with no complications but since her birth I have had another miscarriage and two ectopic pregnancies the last one (may 2011) resulting in emergency surgery to remove my left tube. Was told that if we wanted to try again that I would need to go back on clomid. Hubby and I had decided too not try anymore and I told the doc that on Oct 31, 2011 but was back in the office the follwing week with with a positive test :) We have had two ultrasounds so far and everything looks great. The only way we have made it through it all is with our faith in God. Keep the faith girls!

I just suffered losing my baby at 15 weeks 5 days. I created a page on facebook to get bring awarness and support to what I'm trying to do. I'm making beautiful matching bracelets for demise babies and their mothers. I'll be donating these to the local hospitals but am willing to donate them to anyone who has lost a baby or babies before - just asking for a small donation in return since this is all coming out of my pocket.
I hope to bring some comfort to ladies during a hard time that I've experienced twice.

In September 2008 I found out I was pregnant. 2 weeks after I found out I was pregnant they discovered I had a tubal. I recieved 2 doses of methotrexate. The doctor told me my levels where going down and every thing was fine. October 4th I started having what I thought was extreme gas pains so I was taking almost everything for it. I layed on my couch for 14 hrs bleeding internally didnt even know it. By the time I got to the hospital I had lost so much blood they told my family if we would have waited another 45 min I would have passed on. They had to take my left tube and told me my chances to have another baby was about 15% well here it is 2 yrs later and I am 3 months pregnant. Don't ever give up hope. Doctors are not God..

I too have had an ectopic pregnancy, but mine was extremely rare! I found out that I was pregnant a week before valentines day 6 and a half years ago, by then I already had one beautiful daughter who was 18 months old. On Valentines day, I went to visit my friend and found that I was spotting. So I rang the Dr and was told that it is normal and not to worry. Well, this spotting started to hurt, and it got slightly heavier. So I call my DH to take me to the hospital and get it checked up. We arrived, and had an US to confirm that there was a baby in the uterus but as it was too small (no yolk sac yet) they said that it was still viable. I knew that these pains were not normal, so I went to the toilet, and the baby miscarried into the toilet there. We then went in for another us and they said that was was no baby in the uterus and to take a Blood test to confirm that I was indeed pregnant.. The Dr who did the first US didn't report it so the hospital was unaware of what he saw. After waiting at the hospital for the entire day we went home. Less then a week later I was woken up by the most excrusiating pain ever! My Brother in law drove me to the hospital and they confirmed that I had an ectopic pregnancy that was about to rupture. They transported me to the maternity hospital and I had the tube removed. Since having the tube removed I have been blessed with 3 more children. Don't ever give up on having children, it is still highly possible to fall pregnant with only one tube. Has anyone else ever had an ectopic twin pregnancy?

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have 2 boys 12 and 16. I had an ectopic pregnancy in aug 2004 and I almost died. (literally) After trying for 5 years, I thought I wouldn't be able to have any more kids. I found out I was pregnant the beginning of May and didnt have my sonogram until May27th. I was so afraid that it was another ectopic but to my surprise everything was perfect. Once I saw my baby on the sono and saw the heart beating, I cried tears of joy. So after all this time, it's possible, it can happen. I prayed so hard for this day and my prayers have been answered. I'm hoping this is my little girl. I promise I will keep you updated!! What a blessing. :) due date is 01/10/10

Hello ladies. For anyone experiencing a loss, no matter how early, I suggest that you might find comfort in giving your baby a name. I have named my little one Robin, as it fits for a girl or boy, and a family of robins has made their nest in my backyard. I even etched the name Robin in the tree where the nest is located (I added a few pics to my profile page). Now robins give me a sense of peace and hope and in doing this I feel I've taken a major step towards healing. Hugs to you all.

My ultrasound revealed an ectopic pregnancy and I was given a shot of methotrexate. What should I expect with this?
1482 days ago.
I am going through an ectopic pregnancy currently. The fetus actually looks to be outside my uterus and my tubes, close to my bladder! I was shocked to learn this. Very sad too as this is my second loss this year. We will be successful and have a healthy pregnancy soon I'm sure. I got a BFP (not a super faint line - very convincing) at 8 DPO. It's likely I got the early result because the egg did not travel the falopian tube before implanting in the normal 7 - 10 days past conception time frame. I had spotting and cramping at 6 weeks 4 days, and the heartbeat visible on Tuesday night, was not visible by Friday morning. Right now my doctor wants to 'wait and see' as the sac is not growing and my hCG is going down. I may not need the methotrexate, and likely will not need surgery either.

I found out that I was pregnant back in July, actually we found out on my husband's birthday. We had been trying for a year to try to concieve. Without luck for months it finally happened. Sadly the way i found out was I started bleeding between my AF and i knew something was wrong. It wasn't painful but it was extremely heavy. I went to the hospital that night to find out what was wrong. The did ultrasounds and said I had a growth in my left tube. they let me go home. a week later i woke in severe pain, the bed was soaked with blood (of course) and we went to the e.r. they gave me shots for pain and sent me home. i did see and OBGYN but my appointment were over the phone. (kinda made me mad) She scheduled for me to get the Methotrexate shot. If you don't know what that is, its chemotherapy and it makes your body absorb whats not supposed to be there. I didn't want to get it because I had hope that maybe they were wrong. but they told me i could either do that or lose a tube. so i did get the shot. i was extrememely heart broken, we had tried for so long and lost it within a week. I went into a deep depression. not even five months later, i was pregnant again. we found out on christmas eve that i was expecting again. i was so afraid i was going to lose it, but i'm 19 weeks 2 days and i love this baby more than anything................................what i'm trying to say, please don't lose hope and don't give up, if i did i wouldn't be one of the happiest women now. i prayed and prayed and prayed and god answered my prayers, so don't give up!

Hi, please help me! My period is a week late and I have been experiencing pregnancy symptoms. But 2 negative pregnancy tests! The other thing is I have been having a few pains in the lower right side of my tummy and back ache on the lower right side, I have also got a slight shoulder pain. All this is worrying me that it is an ectopic pregnancy. I have been to the doctor and she said she doesn't think it is ectopic because I have had 2 negative pregnancy tests and the pain would be really bad. But I have read on the internet that sometimes ectopic pregnancy's don't give positive pregnancy tests and that the pain can start gradually. The doctor said to wait a week and test again as I could still be pregnant, but wouldn't a HPT show positive by now? What do I do?! I'm scared! Thanks for letting me go on! annalyn xx
