Ladies.... Don't mess around with putting off demanding a proper internal ultrasound. I did hours worth of Christmas shopping and put the pain to the back of my mind hoping it would ease up. After it burst the pain was weirdly almost non existent. I almost left the hospital but thankfully my mum who had taken me insisted I stay. Even the triage nurse in the ER suggested I go home as I didn't seem to be in too much pain. One nurse also dismissed my concerns saying an ectopic wouldn't present any symptoms before 7 weeks. I was less than 5 and a half. My hpt tests were dark and strong all along, too.

They could seen that my tube was distended so it was immediately apparent to the sonographer, but I was nearly 10 weeks.
At 5 weeks there can often be nothing at all to see even with a viable pg, or even a HB like my kids had. So it's hard to say if it's too early. But there should show a sac at least by this stage. I would be getting an u/s asap and if they don't see a sac, asking for an internal u/s to look at your tubes.

I really had a sense something wasn't right, and I totally believe in mothers intuition as a result. If you think there's something wrong, push for a check xxx

Eptopic? 4wks and sharp right sided pain?
I saw a GP this evening and have a scan to get tomorrow morning, plus bloods. If it gets worse overnight then straight to A&E.
My last ultrasound was internal and external- I wasn't going to turn down an internal, better safe than sorry!
At this point, the only symptom I have is the sharp stabbing pain. It happens no more frequently than every 2 minutes and as far as 20+ minutes apart, and lasts a few seconds. No spotting, fevers, vomiting, not tender to touch etc.
Our local hospital emergency department is a bit hit and miss so I'm really hoping it settles overnight! If need be, I'll head into the city to the Mater. (Brisbane based)

How did you go last night?

The pains were making it through paracetamol, maybe a 7 on the pain scale. They're still here, stabbing away, but no bleeding.
I've got a scan booked for 3.30pm. I was hoping it would be sooner because I'm worried and getting pretty desperate for answers but I don't want to clog up A&E and then be fobbed off and made to feel like a waste of time if it's nothing. (I'm so emotional! Damn hormones!)
