On me and my husband’s honeymoon we slipped up. Condom broke. Now I am late for my period. I am terrified because I have had 3 unsuccessful pregnancies and no successful ones! First one was an ectopic, ruptured my left tube at 10 weeks, I was bleeding internally and about died; they pumped 2 gallons of blood out of my stomach. Second was a miscarriage at 8 weeks; a lot of pain!! The last one was in October 2011 and it was another ectopic pregnancy, but in my right tube. I started having pain about 4 weeks in, and they kept putting it off because I wasn't far enough along. I had to deal with extreme abdominal pain for 2 weeks before the dead fetus swelled up my right tube 5CMs and they could see it on an ultrasound. Stupid doctors!! They had to do exploratory surgery, and found it was, in deed a ectopic pregnancy.
The surgeon said I had a lot of scar tissue on both tubes and have an 80% chance of continued ectopic pregnancies and only 20% of a successful one. I am terrified to find out I am pregnant again because I am scared I will just get my hopes up, just to loose another baby.
I just need encouragement, support and to hear if anyone else has had an ectopic pregnancy before.
