loss mentioned - Update on me

Hi ladies,

I just wanted to start posting here more often and thought I would give a shout out.

I received methotrexate shots yesterday for an ectopic pregnancy. I was supposed to be 7 wks yesterday, and due in December. My betas were not rising appropriately. I see my Dr again Friday, Saturday, and Tuesday. If the Drs do not see a drop in my levels by Tuesday, they will go in and surgically remove my tube.

I would love prayers that the numbers will decrease and surgery is not needed. I had my tubes tied in 2008, had the salvageable one repaired in June 11, and if they remove this, that will take away our option of having a baby unless we research (and somehow save $) for other options that don't require tubes.

So, while I can't really try again until 60 days after the shot, I am hoping I can stick around here?

So incredibly sorry! How are you doing emotionally right now? I did have a friend who had a tubal, and then went on to have two more kids without fertility aid.

You know it is weird. I had a m/c back in November and I was a wreck, I mean I didn't want to do anything other than lie in bed for days. This pg, I was careful not to get too attached (that sounds so cold hearted but I think it was my defense mechanism?) so I think I am dealing with it ok.

I am sad that I have 2 little angels, I am mad that we are getting older (lol every day right?), and I just don't know if we have the heart to try again, but I am counting down the days until we can. Does that make sense?

Kim I didn't realize that you had a tubal. I don't know how I missed that. I guess I've been in a fog for the last few weeks. Gosh what a tough break. I'm so sorry you're going through this. It's just so wrong and so unfair no matter how you look at it. I'll be praying for you that your levels drop and you don't need surgery. I'm sort of in the same boat with my number being too high and having retained tissue after all and maybe needing another d&c but I can't imagine being faced with losing my tube while going through all of this. Sending all the positive vibes and thoughts and prayers I can your way sweetie. Keep us updated! Sending you some giant hugs also!

So sorry for your loss,my 2nd loss was a tubal and i also took the methotrexate.It did seem to do the trick and AF arrived after about 6 weeks.I also only had one good tube that they did surgery to repair,and it seemed to be the right choice to take the meds instead of surgery as I did get preg again about 2 months later.Unfortunately for me that resulted in an early m/c but I think my age was a huge contributor to that,I was 41 at the time.I have seen other ladies go on to healthy preg after that over the years and hope with your drs help you will as well.Wishing you all the best for a speedy recovery .
