Early MC, ectopic, here we go again


Here's my story: i have 2 beautiful healthy boys and i've been trying for another. I had a MC at 5w 5 d in September 2016. Then an ectopic Jan 20 2017. It's been 4 weeks since the ectopic and I went to the ER last night because of a cpupke reasons: 1. I was feeling pain the same spot as my ectopic, 2. I havent gotten my period yet and could be pregnant again. They did bloodwork and hcg level was 8. With the ectopic they followed it all the way down to 0 so this is not left over. So now here I go again getting bloodwork every other day for who knows how long. I am wondering if anyone else had hcg levels this low? Its been either 14 or 16 days since i had sex.

Hi, I know it's been a few days since you posted this, was wondering how you are doing? I am in a situation similar. It has been four weeks exactly since my ectopic pregnancy. I had surgery to remove the pregnancy and my right tube as it had ruptured. I had internal bleeding, but not enough to need a transfusion. I had all the signs of ovulation last night and we dtd last night and two other times in the last week. I am getting so nervous about having another ectopic. I am scheduled to go for my last blood draw this coming Monday as my levels were still at 10 on the 13th. I am curious to see if I did conceive if my levels will show at this blood test. This has been one of the hardest things I've been through. I am so blessed to have three beautiful children, and we had decided everything was perfect to try again for a fourth for it to end in ectopic. My heart was broken. I hope things are going good for you!!!

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. Wish it would show up, but I know it probably won't. So glad your line is getting darker!!! Let me know how your levels are after your blood test!

Thanks. Luckily i will know by 10 am tomorrow. I just hope that the number is much higher than my previous 8. But this is still very early in the pregnancy. I am pretty surprised that i got pregnant again this month and im feeling gopeful that this one will last.

FX your levels are great when you get them back tomorrow! It is so wonderful you got pregnant so quickly. I am hoping I have that much luck this cycle too!

My hcg level came back at 206 from yesterday the doctor is happy with that but says i am still at a high risk of an another ectopic. Im having some pain in the same spot as last month, so thats really making things atressful. I have been instructed to go tk the ER if it gets worse. I had a sono today and they didnt see anything good or bad. I have to keep checking my hcg levels every few days and ince they get to 3000 i will have another sono to make sure it is implanted in ny uterus. They are expecting that to be next Friday. Having an extopic pregnancy really threw a wrench in the works. How is everything with you?

That's so great that your levels went up! Do you mind if I ask if you were treated with the injection or surgery? Just curious what puts you at higher risk for another one. My dr made it sound like I wasn't really at higher risk, but that they want to monitor me really closely when I get pregnant again. I wonder if it's because they removed the tube that was damaged by the ectopic. I have read that some women will have pain around the spot of the last ectopic if they get pregnant again soon after, maybe from it still healing. Praying your pain is just from that!!! I hope your levels go up quick so you can get your sono soon!

Everything is going ok for me. I am 2 dpo today if I am correct about when I ovulated. I have been having some cramps off and on around my ovaries. Other than that, not much to report. I understand about the ectopic throwing a wrench in things. It was the last thing I expected to happen and has been so difficult. I am still dealing with it emotionally. I have days where I am good and days that I am super emotional. Not fun for sure.

I was treated w the injection. From what I understand once you've had one ectopic pregnancy you are more likely to have another.
