Hello lovelies - I hope it's sunny where you are!
I'm sorry this is so long, but I can't get any help from the doctors until Monday!
I was hoping someone could offer a bit of advice as I'm still in the dark and don't know if my pregnancy is ectopic or not ... I went to my GP yesterday because I was spotting - really light pink, sometimes I could see streaks of blood in CM - so I wasn't too worried, but wanted to be reassured. She sent me for a scan to make sure everything was okay - I was 6w+2 yesterday.
At the scan, they saw a sac (nothing in it) measuring 5w+3 and 'something' on my left ovary. The tech called the doctor in who said it could be ectopic and that my GP would probably recommend a scan in a week or so since I wasn't in any pain. He also said I should go back to my GP that afternoon as she might want to look at other options.
I went back to my GP who freaked out and called the ER gyno and asked if I should go in ... the ER gyno said yes, so off to the ER I went thinking something terrible was about to happen. I waited in the waiting room for 2 hours (still in no pain) before being taken in. I had bloodwork done which showed my HCG at around 4,000 (ER doc said that would be right for about 6 weeks?).
Finally the ER gyno came in and did an internal to see where the bleeding was coming from and if she could feel anything or if I felt any pain - said the bleeding was from my cervix and wasn't much at all and she couldn't feel anything, nor was I in any pain. She said it was possible, based on my symptoms (sore boobs, nausea, tiredness) that I was really pregnant, but she couldn't be sure yet.
So ... here I am, back at home after an uneventful night (ok, ok, I came home and went to bed because my body is convinced it's pregnant even if I'm not!) and won't have any news until Monday when I am to go back to the hospital where they have a 'Bleeding in Early Pregnancy' clinic - she said they would probably re-do the ultrasound and will take bloods to measure HCG again. If it doubles, it's a real pregnancy and if it goes slightly up or slightly down, it's ectopic with a pseudo-sac in my uterus.
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience of this? If it turns out I have both a real pregnancy and an ectopic pregnancy, I will be pretty unusual - stats I've seen are anywhere between 1-10,000 and 1-30,000!
Is there any chance it could be a real pregnancy? It took us 11 cycles to get pregnant and the thought that we aren't is devastating.
