Need some advice... (long)
Hello Ladies - I've been having some issues.
In late January, I started bleeding, which I thought was odd because I just had my period two weeks before that. Then I got sick with a cold. I dragged myself into the bathroom to take a pregnancy test, only because I was wondering what in the world was going on. It tested positive, immediately. About 5 days later, sex was extremely painful. I begged the doc for an u/s and they acted like everything was fine. Turns out, it wasn't. I had an ectopic. They gave me shots of MTX, even though my HCG level sky rocketed up to 13900, but the shots worked all the way back down to 303 hcg. Then I had to stop going. I never took a preg test since then, just to see if my HCG level went back down to zero and now I'm kicking myself for it.
I took a preg test Monday and it was positive, immediately. I knew it would be - my boobs were killing me and they only get like that when I'm pregnant. Thing is, I have this weird pain on my left side. I've HAD the pain ever since I had the ectopic pregnancy and I don't know if it hurts more or if I'm just hyper aware of it now because of the pregnancy or what, but it's definitely more there. I'm not bleeding or spotting. With my ectopic and my chemical, I was bleeding when I found out I was pregnant. The "pain" isn't even really a pain. It's almost like a throbbing and sometimes it doesn't bother me at all.
Has anyone else experience pain from an ectopic months down the road? I'm so scared it's another ectopic. All I can think is that my previous ectopic blocked THIS egg from rolling down the tube and now THIS egg is growing in there too! I know it's a good sign I'm not bleeding.. and I get fantastic bouts of nausea that just come out of the blue and then go away in a few minutes (which didn't occur with the other pregnancies BUT my stomach hurts a lot anyway).. but this peculiar uncomfortable feeling on my left side has me worried.
The doctor has to wait until next week.. just would like some reassurance I guess. Thanks ladies
