Post subject: ectopic pregnancy
hi lou1988, sorry to hear what you are going through, i went through the same in april of this year,i went back and for to the hospital for 3 weeks trying to get some answers from the docs. mine started with a bad back, just went for a check up. so they sent me to the epu. for some scans. which showed nothing in my utrus and i was 7 weeks pregnant, had blood done ever to days. to see if my hgc levels where rising. they where going up but not as they where supposed to., by the 3 thrid week, they said to me after another 2 scans that they couldnt see nothing and that it was more than likely an ectopic, so they gave me 2 choices, do nothing and wait , or have the methotraxe jab, so i had the jab that nite , which was horrid, i couldnt belive it was happening to me,because i had already had 3 lovely children, and never had a problem, now 6 months later i cant seem to get pregnant again, hope it all works out for you.donner4468.

i went through the same this year in may.. they did th hcg tests and everything.. but they sent me for early scans.. which they should be doing with u especially if u are 8 weeks! as the heartbeat can definitely be seen by then plus they can also see if baby is in the tube or ur uterus.
They cant leave u in the lurch like that, i would deifnitely bring it up next time ur there.. if not sooner. Its a good sign that ur hcg is going up.. it could just be early preg hun.. i really hope ur alright babe xxxx

I don't really have experience with this type of hcg problem as when I have had miscarriages my hormones have been low and then dropped, but I just wanted to wish you luck for monday. Hopefully you get some proper answers on monday and hopefully all is well. As Mum2B said you should be having scans to check, but maybe they will do this on monday. Hope you are ok.

Post subject: My ectopic
When I had my ectopic pregnancy my HCG levels rose very slowly but was rising. I didn't know it was an ectopic pregnancy I was about 5 weeks along. Same thing with me they didn't tell me much just told me not to stress and it could be normal. Mine was on the verge of rupture by the time it needed to be removed. If you ever have severe pain in your lower abdomen get to the hospital asap. A ruptured tube can cause you to bleed to death if untreated. Good luck and hope it isn't a tubal. I took mine very hard.

Im so sorry you are going through this. Your hcg levels should double every 48hours with a normal pg. I had an EP in March and the first sign was pain and bleading. I had shoulder tip pain and lower one sided pain. My hcg levels were far to low for 6 wks so they scan me. Unfortunately my tube had ruptured and I had to have an op. Its a really hard thing to go through so I understand you are obviously distressed. I have heard of some ladies when two eggs fertilise and one is ectopic and one not I think its called a hetroectopic pg. I hope you are ok and wish you well hun. Take care. Pupx
