In my life this has been the worst hell I've been thru. Even though mine didn't have a HB and fetal pole it was still my baby

I've had two. One with methotrexate and the current one resolved on its own. I'll see if I can find the link to my old preg diary which had all my levels and info.
Sorry for your loss delirium.

GirlsRock - I'm very sorry for your loss too. I'm thankful my m/c didn't end in a d&C. Take care of yourself

It is a horrible thing and doesn't finalize as quickly as a mc with a d&c so it makes it very difficult. Of course it was you baby! It formed and grew to that point like any other bub
I was in hospital 4 days with 3 obs monitoring me and deliberating over the best course of action. At the end of the day they presented me with mthx or surgery as options because it was so borderline and hcg had started dropping ever so slightly on it's own... I picked the shot to try and save future fertility: how wrong I was!!!! Hindsight hey?

I should mention the deliberation was due to them not being able to tell precise location- ovary or tube. It looked connected to both and they were concerned surgery would require removal of both ovary and tube significantly impacting my fertility. As a 25 yr old with no kids and a history of mc's and fertility issues they wanted to avoid that god love them. Unluckily eventually we had surgery due to rupture- luckily my ovary was saved and I'm currently in hospital, 38 weeks pregnant, awaiting possible induction after ovulating from that ovary and getting egg picked up by opposite tube. Crazy huh??? Probably not exactly what you want to hear about right now (sorry!!) but I want to give you hope xxxxxxx

I am so, so sorry for your loss *hugs* I know words won't really help, but I'm thinking of you xx
I've had two. First they tried methotrexate which didn't work, so I had a second shot which also didn't work ruptured two weeks after the diagnosis and they did surgery to remove my tube.
Second was last month, same side the egg latched onto the "stump" of my removed tube. We now need IVF

First time around it was 1000 I think? Then it climbed to 1700 after my shot which is why I had a second one. But I think it's meant to jump at day 4 then start dropping by day 7? Or something similar. Please, if you feel any discomfort or pain, insist they do more bloods and an internal scan. My hospital refused 4 times before I ruptured

Both mine were ovarian ectopics. One left and one right. Pretty much unheard of to have two ovarian ectopics.
I'll jump On the laptop tomorrow and try and give you some links.
The old diary is called nervous ramblings of a hope to be mum or something like that. The last pages will have all the ectopic details and levels.
My recent diary should be easily found in my previous recent posts.
