I had the shot for an ectopic in early November. I felt the same way as you. I felt like I was sitting there allowing someone to kill my baby. I had a very hard time emotionally. Luckily I have amazing husband, family, and friends that stood by me. My biggest piece of advice from you is to let it out!! Let your emotions out!! The good news is my Dr told me we could start trying again on January and... We are expecting a little one in mid October!!!!You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I had two methotrexate shots today to end an ectopic pregnancy in my right tube. It s my first pregnancy and I ve tried for years. I had back to back IUIs in June and got pregnant. I was so excited! My numbers were rising but very slowly. The doctors were very cautious and had me come in for bloodwork every three days. Since I m almost 6 weeks and the numbers still haven t hit 700, I went in for an ultrasound today and got the devastating news. I know what you mean about feeling terrible! I know I didn t have a choice and the risks of continuing a pregnancy in the tube was too great, but I still can t help crying over it and feeling like I gave consent to terminate the pregnancy. I m so sorry you are going through this and have had two tubal pregnancies. Know you are not alone. :( I had two methotrexate shots today to end an ectopic pregnancy in my right tube.

Congratulations! That s great that you ll have a new little bundle of joy in October. You said you had a hard time emotionally dealing with your ectopic pregnancy back in November. Did you have the methrotrexate shot? I had the shots today and am still in shock after learning definitively that my pregnancy is ectopic. It was suspected with my low rising hcg levels, but it wasn t confirmed until this morning with an ultrasound. Since I m almost 6 weeks, the doctor wanted to do the shots to end the pregnancy and avoid surgery. This way, hopefully, my tube will be okay. I also have a strong support system, but I haven t stop crying today and nothing anyone says is comforting. Congratulations! That s great that you ll have a new little bundle of joy in October.

Nausea is common with the shots I m told. I felt a little nauseas after I got the shot yesterday, but I m not today. I m still having pain though and a terrible headache. I m hoping that will go away soon. I do feel better (physically) than I did yesterday though. I don t know how long it wqill take before I feel better emotionally. Did your dr. give you a list of side effects from the med? If not, you can find info online. Hopefully you ll feel better tomorrow. Since I just had it done yesterday, I don t know how long it will take to really feel better, but the medicine can have a lot of side effects. Nausea is common with the shots I m told.

I had the methotrexate shot on June 21 to dissolve the tubal pregnancy, it s was definitely sad but I knew it was something that had to be done. I will tell you to be totally honest w/ your doctor let them know of any pain/cramping you may have. Not to scare but to keep you aware, 4 weeks post shot my numbers were dropping greatly but the pain was increasing. Turns out my body didn t dissolve the sac it kept filling up w/ blood growing which ruptured my right tube. I was rushed in for emergency surgery july 18th to remove the tube stop the internal bleeding. So please listen to your body don t let them tell you it s normal to have pain. I recommend you have them do a follow up u/s to make sure everything is going the way its supposed too. Best of luck a speedy recovery!
