Ectopic scar pregnancy


Hi,

I'm just looking for anyone else that has experienced this type of ectopic pregnancy. It was confirmed on 5/1/2017 that my twins were both implanted into my c-section scar. I was 6+2 weeks and saw 2 heartbeats that morning. I had a scan 7 days before where they thought I was about to miscarry as the sacs were so low so this was my follow up scan. I had an ultrasound guided D&C that evening. I'm still bleeding it slows down and then starts up heavy again. I was told I can't TTC for 12 months by my consultant. This is the hardest thing I've ever been through, I'm very up and down at the moment. And for the first time in my life I'm trying to block it all out as I can't cope with it, which is very unusual for me as I deal with things well and can talk openly to those around me.

Thank you. X

Oh my goodness....I was reading up on that and it is such a small percentage of ectopic pregnancies implanting in the csection scar. I am so sorry this has happened to you. I guess your body needs time to heal before trying to conceive again so that this doesn't happen again. My heart breaks for you.

How are you doing? Feeling?? Sending hugs

Thank you for the reply.

Iím still up and down, usually when Iím getting on with day to day things and I hear or see something or it just hits me and I end up in tears. Also hard seeing friends post pregnancy announcements on fb that are due in July & August as thatís when I would have been due with my m/c and my twins with the ectopic. Iím happy for them, but itís hard seeing the scan photos thinking that would be my babies now.

Xx

Hello

I'm sorry that you are going through this. I too went through this. My ectopic on my scar was after my 2nd c-section. I wanted to let you know that I had a successful pregnancy after this. You are lucky that they caught this early. For me it was missed, I miscarried but not completely then some tissue was stuck in my scar, it continued to grow, and I ended up with a mass all the way through my uterus wall.

My ectopic on my scar was in October 2013 it was January 2014 before I had not more hcg in my blood work.. this felt like an eternity at the time. They checked the thickness of my uterus wall several times through a saline infused ultrasound. I was given the okay in August 2014 to have another baby. I got pregnant in September 2014, I miscarried again. I then got pregnant in February 2015 and had a beautiful daughter in Oct. 2015. They did watch me very closely, checked first where baby implanted, then where the placenta implanted. My uterus wall did get very very thin, I had my baby at 37+1 via c-section, the doctor said my uterus wall was very very thin, about 1 mm thick.. she said I could not have any more, it would be too risky. I was told that when I sectioned that I was within 24 hours of rupturing.. super scary.

But my daughter is beautiful so well worth it.

Feel free to ask any questions if you have any.

Kim
