I posted here in the summer as I was having a suspected ectopic pregnancy. I had expectant management and didn't require any treatment. Now 6 months later it would seem that I'm having another ectopic on the other side from the first one. I am devastated. I knew it wasn't right from the start but I was hoping it would be a miscarriage. I know it's an awful thing to wish for but I'm now faced with the fact that I have a problem in both my Fallopian tubes.

I have another HCG test on Thursday and of its increased I'll need to take the methotrexate. I can't believe this is happening again. I know we are lucky because we have a little girl already but it's approaching the due date of by first ectopic and instead of being pregnant again I'm facing infertility.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Ectopic pregnancies are devastating as not only are you coming to terms with losing your baby you have the fear of what it has done to your fertility. We tried for children for many years. We had all the tests done after 2.5 years of trying and my tubes were nice and clear. We then had a few miscarriages, then a successful pregnancy smilefollowed by two ectopics. The first ectopic was treated with methotrexate, the second one was in the other tube and unfortunately it ruptured. Amazingly after all this we then went on to have DS. I'm sharing this to hopefully give you some hope that two ectopics does not necessarily mean that you won't conceive again. We both have fertility issues and DS is our little miracle. The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust has a great forum and I got lots of support from there. I really hope things work out for you.

I got home today thanks. Levels have fallen without needing treatment. Want it all over so I can get back to normal. I've felt really ill with it this time and found I can't really carry on as normal so just need to rest.

just to say I am thinking of you too. I have had an ectopic and 2 mc and it's heartbreaking. My DS is 6 and have been TTC 5 years now x

Hi - how are you getting on?

I'm okay. I went back to work which was difficult. People knew I was pregnant because we work with hazardous chemicals. I'm glad that I've got that part over with.

So I'm just in that wierd limbo of waiting for first af. I didn't have to wait long the last time but I have a feeling it's going to drag on this time. Unfortunately the due date of the first ectopic is approaching. Not the best timing. How are you doing?

I am ok thanks. Found out i am pregnant again and have found it is in the right place but just a bundle of worries and can't really do anything apart from think about it all.

Congratulations that's great news! I know how difficult it is not to worry. I think you just need to take one day at a time. As much as I want to be pregnant again I know I'll be a nervous wreck. I really hope everything works out for you this time
