Post subject: my pregnancy is ectopic...
.. I am now 7.5 weeks pregnant??
had scan on 22/9 they couldnt see anything.. hcg 900..
had to go back 2 days latter to check hcg is was 1190 .. next hcg 1597..
then 1896.. then I started bleeding 5 days ago.. it was quite heavy..and I thought I saw some tissue remains? had another scan ..still nothing.. but they thought my uterus lining looked a bit thinner..so I presumed I was miscarrying.. and expected my hcg to fall.. the next one was just over 2000.. the bleeding is now light and the lastest one is 2708.. which suggest something is still growing.. so I suspect its an e/p not an m/c.. have had niggly pain..but not really bad pains..
but am really scared that the tube is going to rupture.. got scan and hopefully Laparoscopy tomorrow..i wish doctors would not put womens lives at risk..with the rising hcg I should have been sorted out sooner..xxxxxxxxx

Angel hun, ive just replied on your other post and now seen this. Surely they have an A&E in that hospital??? Try to phone NHS for advise because believe me hospitals do get their timing wrong so many times and an apology after the event really isnt a substitute for good health. I really dont want to add to your stress and concerns but pls trying getting some advise today.
keeping my fx for you x

A&E wont treat me or admit me unless its am emergency and I am doubled over in pain.. heavily bleeding or about to go into shock.. all they could do was check my pulse oxygen levels
bp and blood sugar and urine and temp.. so if I go there again today as I am now..they will just do the same and send me home.. they did this with julie and Tash too.. xxxxxxx

you need to FORCE them to do something at a & e hun! pretend youre in agony if you have to, because this could leave you like poor julie, or worse, kill you
when i went in with pains in my side, they made me do a pg test, which came up positive (not good, having a nurse come in and laugh at you, saying 'hehehe youre pregnant. but however) and then they rushed me through to the antenatal clinic to have an internal scan. think after the bfp, i waited no more than an hour before i was scanned, so they CAN bloody do something for you, theyre just choosing not to!!!!

you do need to be really forcefull. i waited ages, if they had done something sooner instead of telling me i was having m/c then telling me it was a healthy pg then i wouldnt have lost my tube. it didnt rupture but it was so close to it was too damaged to save. make them do something for you before we read another story like julies or worse
so sorry for you though
3 Angel babies. Lost but still loved so much

My first miscarriage was so similar. Luckily it was just a mc but after two blood tests (first normal, 2nd rising but not enough) I was told to come to hospital the next day and that's when they did a Laparoscopy and then a D&C X It scared me how quick they reacted and how 'to the point' they were at the time (I was so scared) but at least they did the right thing! I am so sad for you that you have had this dragged for too long....and how you are being let down. Fight huni.... xxxx
sending you lots of hugs and well wishes xxxx

yes it was definately ectopic..
lost right tube and baby.. but was operated on before it ruptured.. wish they had kept me in at the weekend now.. maybe things would have been different.. have just got home from hospital today..A&E who I saw on saturday are at fault,cos gynae said they knew all about me,and would have admitted me on saturday if they had known I was in A&E.. xx

yes I will..like many others I paid privately for the op.. and asked that they made sure it wasnt ectopic.. and kept me safe.. I dont feel they did their job properly.. post op care was brilliant, but they shouldnt let this happen.. as why do the hsg testing in the first place if youre not going to act on abnormal results.. xx
