Miscarriage/ectopic and swollen fallopian tubes 😔


I hope it's ok to share my story here. I'm hoping it will help me come to terms with everything and help me heal.
I was due af on friday 8th demember. When it didn't come I took a hpt on Sunday and got such a squinter I thought it was an evap.
On Monday I started bleeding and bled heavy with clots for 2 days. (Usual af is 6 days) On Wednesday I decided to take another hpt as felt a little sick and got a very faint but definite bfp. I assumed I'd had a chemical pregnancy.
On Friday I took the last hpt and was very surprised to see the strongest bfp I'd ever seen. However I knew something was wrong as since the bleeding I'd continued to spot and had lots of pain on my right side along with strong cramps.
On Saturday my doctor told me to go straight to the early pregnancy unit where they found my hcg level was 500 but my progesterone was only 5nmol so I knew then it was not viable ( but praying for a miracle)
On Monday I had an internal scan where they didn't see anything in my uterus or tubes. They did see that the lining of my womb was very thin.
My hcg level rose to 1700 so trippled within 48h yet my progesterone only rose to 7. I had continued to spot on and off but not enough to make me feel id miscarried.😭
I had another scan 2 days ago where they found my right fallopian tube swollen (salpingitis) and ive since been told it will never heal 😭 I spent 2 nights in hospital and persuaded them to let me come out to spend the next few days with my family. I'm still getting pain and spotting and feel in limbo.
Tomorrow I'm going back for more bloods. They still suspect an ectopic. If my blood levels come down they think it will have sorted itself out. If they rise I'll go into surgery. I've also had swabs take to check for pelvic inflamation disease.
Thank you for reading. I feel very emotional and sad.
The doctor has said if we want to ttc (we do next year) that I will need my right tube clipped or removed.

Iím wishing th the best for you! They think I may going thru an etopic too based on my hcg levels. They arenít not doubling and Iíve had spotting and now cramps but not on one side in particular. I had 167 then 311 then 467 all 48 hrs apart. I go in tomorrow for u/s but I donít think they will see anything due to low hcg levels again best of luck

Thinking of you. You possibly won't see anything yet however male sire they will check your numbers again. Also have they checked your progesterone level? Sending positive vibes and thank you x

I had a call back from the hospital and my hcg levels have pretty much stalled. Gone from 590 to 490 and then to only 459 all 48 hours apart. I go in Wednesday for repeat bloods scan but more than likely I'll have surgery 😭 so sad

Just to update for anyone looking on the internet (as I have spent the last few weeks doing)
My hcg levels went down to 490 and then 459 in 48 hours so pretty much stalled. 48 hours later they had risen to 598. I had a ultrasound which didn't show anything.
I went down for surgery this morning where they found the baby in my left fallopian tube. They have removed part of the tube and clipped and say the other tube is healthy. Funny as all of my pain (which had become unbearable at times over the last few days) was on my right side. I had no shoulder tip pain only spotting and lower pain were my symptoms along with funny hcg levels and really low progesterone.
I feel emotional drained and in a lot of pain. If you're reading this and worried please seek medical advice. Sending love ❤
