Ectopic pregnancy | Mom Answers | BabyCenter
22 out of 26 found this helpful Yes! I think I was about 8 weeks when my fallopian tube finally erupted because of the pregnancy. I was schedule for an ultrasound on Wednesday to confirm the ectopic pregnancy and my tube erupted on Tuesday. I had my mentstrual cycle and pains the entire time I was pregnant and had to argue with doctors/nurses that something wasn't right. Pay attention to your body and don't doubt yourself. Try to get treated ASAP! posted 11/30/2007 by Kendra#2 Report answer Was this answer helpful? Yes | No Thank you!
13 out of 15 found this helpful yes you can but emergency termination is necessary to save your life. An ectopic pregnancy will not resolve and waiting only makes it more dangerous to your life. I was around 8 weeks when it was discovered that I had an ectopic pregnancy. emergency surgical intervention was required and I lost the baby and the tube. As a result of my very first pregnancy, age 29, being ectopic I held a higher risk of future ectopic pregnancy and would have to be closely monitored from the moment I discovered I was pregnant. With pregnancy #2, approx 9 months later, I was monitored every 48 hours with blood work and at 5 weeks it was determined that I was probably having another ectopic. I again chose emergency surgical intervention rather than chemical termination...and thankfully so because two days later we discovered there was a twin who had made it to my uterus all snug as a bug. a 1 in 30k miracle as I now cannot get pregnant through natural means. posted 03/18/2010 by kendalecal Report answer Was this answer helpful?

10 out of 10 found this helpful Yes, I was just past 8 weeks when mine also ruptured, and I lost the tube. Be insistent with your DR and their nurses. They just sent me home like there was no urgency to figure out my case, telling me I must have miscarried and that ectopic was not a consideration - Yea right! a few days later I was int he ER and having emergency surgery, and now I am down one tube. It is very depressing. If it doesn't feel right to you, and your DR won't respond, go to the ER, even lie about your pain level just so someone will check you out and make sure everything is ok. posted 12/10/2007 by bellaserra Report answer Was this answer helpful?

10 out of 12 found this helpful I was about 10 wks when we found out and ready to burst. I had to have emergency surgery. If you suspect that you have it several signs are abdominal pain, constipation, spotting, etc. The last thing you want is for your tube to burst as it can be dangerous for you. Get an ultrasound and find out right away. Good luck! posted 01/19/2008 by Caprece Report answer Was this answer helpful? Yes | No Thank you!
4 out of 4 found this helpful This week I lost one baby I wanted and can?t even pick up the one I have. I had massive abdominal surgery to fix a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. The problem had gone on so long that I have a huge scar rivaling that of a Cesarian Section. I am devastated. The last thing I want to do is write about this and have everyone in the world know how bad I feel. But nothing else is making me feel better. I had abdominal pain and abnormal bleeding for a few weeks. I also had some right side numbness. I went to my regular family doctor. She told me to see my OB and a neurologist. I went to my OB. My OB told me I was pregnant. I was shocked because of the bleeding. Mr. Bishop and I were very excited for another little winter baby. The OB called me and said my blood test HcG was weird and my progesterone was low. I went back for a blood test 4 days later and the numbers got weirder and a little lower. posted 06/20/2010 by mommyipooped Report answer Was this answer helpful? Yes | No Thank you!
3 out of 3 found this helpful and to add onto that. I had no symptoms or signs of an ectopic pregnancy what so ever. No bleeding or pain just the usual pregnancy nausea and fatigue. I went for a dating scan and that's when they found it! Luckily I went to the ultrasound scan earlier. My doctor had told me to go at week 12 for my first scan! Ladies please make sure you have an early ultasound scan when pregnant. If found ectopic early, rupturing is less likely to occur and other options than surgery will be taken into action. Hope this helps :) Keep safe x posted 03/06/2013 by ohemmgee Report answer Was this answer helpful? Yes | No Thank you!
3 out of 3 found this helpful I was 6 weeks when I found out I was pregnant. One day at work I went to the restroom and found bleeding which of course scared me! Shortly after I started having severe pain in my left side. I went to the ER only to sit there for 8 hours. The dr said just have your blood work tested again in two days. They even tried to convince me everything was fine and I wasn't as far along as I thought. I came come and the pain was Worse so i went to a different hospital where they said I had a miscarriage. Two weeks later which was this past Thursday. I went to my dr and told me i was still pregnant. i was excited yet scared that I would go through losing my baby again. As my luck would go. he found I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in my left tube. Luckily they were able to salvage some of my tube. Recovery hasn't been terrible but emotionally I am still devastated. If you think you are having these symptoms talk with your dr about it. They can find this through ultrasound. posted 10/03/2012 by Stevie2012 Report answer Was this answer helpful? Yes | No Thank you!
2 out of 2 found this helpful I really don't know for sure what's going on, I started bleeding really bad entering my 3rd month, it was bad, I got really strong cramps with a heavy clot of blood, it seemed like a miscarriage, but I'm not even really sure bc it also could be something else. I bled at 3 months with my second pregnancy and it turned out to be all fine, I had my daughter 6months later, and she weighed 9lbs. 7ozs. So yes you could be bleeding like a period and still all will be ok. Only God can decide, pray for that baby you so longed for, I did and my daughter today is a healthy young lady.M.R. posted 08/13/2011 by a BabyCenter Member Report answer Was this answer helpful?

5 out of 8 found this helpful @Cova_lewis1977: I'm not exactly sure if your cervix stays closed or not during a tubal pregnancy, but I do know that I'd had a miscarriage before and I found out by taking a home pregnancy test and got a positive result first. I started spotting a bit which lasted about 3 days so I made an OB appt. where they done an ultrasound. They also didn't see anything in the ultrasound that indicated a baby so they determined that I'd miscarried and the baby was already starting to pass through. They also did a pap smear type exam and my cervix was fully dilated at that time. I had to go back like every other day to make sure my HcG levels were going down normally and that the tissue was passing through on its own which cause some hard cramps and heavy bleeding with clots of tissue from the embryo. My cervix then closed back up normally within a week or so! So, i'm SURE thats exactly what happened to you as well. posted 01/20/2011 by tailiyah22 Report answer Was this answer helpful?
