    Hi & thank you for reading... After my ultrasound yesterday, I was sent to the hospital to receive 2 shots of methotrexate. I am wondering what to expect?

    My HCG levels had been ALMOST doubling every 48 hours and as of yesterday I was 6w 2d pregnant. As soon as I realized the sonographer could not find anything in my uterus, I started sobbing. Baby was half way between my uterus and right ovary.

    Has anyone had any similar situations? How far along were you and how intense was the pain when baby started to pass?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I am sorry for your loss. I was given the shot on March 22 of this year for a suspected ectopic. I really never had any severe cramping after the shot. I just bled for 17-20 days or so.

    After you get the shot they tell you not to TTC for atleast 3 months. Well I just want to tell you that the 3 months will fly right by and before you know it you will be back to TTC. Best of luck!
