I am 24 years old and have just experienced my second ectopic pregnancy. In Dec of 08 I had emergency surgery to remove an ectopic n lost my right tube. And at that time the doc had warned me that i had a greater risk of having a second ectopic due to scarring on my left tube as well. reason for scarring still unkn. And a lil over 2 weeks ago i found out i was pregnant and it wasnt even 2 days before i started having this little pain in my left side, n i just prepared myself for the worse. Went to ER n did bloodwork n ultrasound but since my numbers were way too low to see anything i was sent home without an answer to wait 48 hours for repeat bloodwork. My number started out 161...low. but after 48 hours it had doubled to 307....still not high like they shoulda been. so more waiting, torture not knowing if u should be happy or sad. Saw my doc n had another ultrasound done but still no signs of a tubal or embryo so more bloodwork n waiting, all the while the pain is gettin worse n i start having brown spotting. Then on the 10th day i woke up to a phone call from my doc saying he was still concerned with my levels even tho they doubled n were at 808 n that he wanted me to go to the ER. I had also started bleeding actual blood the night before n after i got off the phone i stood up n could feel my blood pressure just drop. scared the hell outta me and had my grams rush me to the ER where i was convinced i was experiencing a miscarrage. cramping, clots, bleeding....n went in for another ultrasound knowing wat they were gonna tell me< that i was miscarrying. But instead the doc says "it looks like it is an ectopic afterall, small mass in the tube, since its still early u have the option of a shot of methotrexate which will stop the growth n absorb it into your body." at this point my biggest fear was it being another ectopic n me possibly losing my other tube and never be able to concieve naturally again...ever. I had prepared myself for this n decited to get the shot. It hurt for a lil while n it was in my lower back/butt. wat im assuming were the side affects of the shot were pretty horrible. Diarrea, gas/ bloating, nausea, achy body, n i was in bed for 3 days. 4 days after shot still bleeding and passed large clots, pain comes and goes n my bloodwork had gone up to 1800 which doc said is normal n that at the 7th day after the shot is the number that will tell us if it worked ornot. A second dose could be an option if the risk of rupture is low still, but 1 in every 15 cases the shot doesnt work n surgery is required. I will know tomorrow if it worked...praying god has spared me my last tube n i can continue life with that feeling of purpose n hope for my future, cuz without my last tube i would feel worthless, less than a women, n just lost. still feeling the pinch in my side...just want this to all be over already so i can get back to my life n my health...And before any of this happened God blessed me with my best friend n true love, my daughter Hailey Rae who is 4 1/2. So even if i never have another child im still so blessed n grateful n lucky to have her. But my advice to u is GO WITH UR INSTINCT, i knew for 2 weeks something was wrong n i was sure it was in the tube without any real proof or reason, just that gut feeling i couldnt deny.... n just 48 hrs before they confirmed it an ectopic the ultrasound tech told me "no signs of anything in the tube, looks clear" but i wasnt believing it. I have had mixed feelings about this since i prepared myself for the worst n wouldnt let my mind even think of it as a full term baby, just sum cells, which helped soften the blow< but its still a huge loss n its hard sitting in the waiting room with all these pregnant women askin God "why cant i have that? wat did i do to deserve 4 pregnancies with only one child?"
