Post subject: Pregnant after two ectopics but so anxious
I had a sterilisation reversal two years ago and then an ectopic pregnancy in 2008 and another in 2009 both about 5 weeks pregnant. I am now 5 weeks pregnant again and feeling extremely anxious it is going to go wrong again. I am seeing my GP on monday when i am 6 weeks to be booked in for an early pregnancy scan but feel so negative.
Everytime i go to the toilet i expect to be bleeding and i am waiting for the pain - i am so on edge, its awful - i cant wait to be 8 weeks pregnant.
Has anyone else had two ectopic and then a successful pregnancy?

thank you so much for asking.
I was in a lot of pain on saturday night at a dinner party so had to suffer and pretend ok and on sunday morning i started bleeding so knew in my heart it was over again. Went for a scan on monday morning to be told for the 3rd time, there was no foetus in the uterus therefore a likely ectopic again.
I cant believe i have had 3 ectopics, and pregnant each time on my left side which has tubal damage. waiting now for op to have it removed and i cannot wait. cant suffer this again!
To make it even sadder, my sis is pregnant after being told for 12 years she cant hav kids after she had a ruptured ectopic and we were both due on the 23rd october!! I am going with her in the morning for her scan and i really hope it is ok.

first of all sorry you are going through this again, but if its of any help to you, I had my right tube and ovary removed after having 2 ectopics on that side. I then had the procedure where you have the dye flushed through your remaining tube to check its ok and I fell pregnant 2 weeks later, there is light at the end of that dark tunnel you feel like you're in right now. Big hugs and best wishes to you

Im so sorry for what you have been through. How are you and your sister hunni. I have had one ectopic and have gone on to have a successful pregnancy although was told my remaining tube was blocked.
Just wondered how you are doing, I feel for you as you have been through so much.
