WOW! That is some story! Please let us know how it goes. They are going to make you wait a week?
Did you post your question on the pregnancy site? I would post it on the 34 and under and the 35 and older...Hopefully you can get some answers...
I had this happen about 5 years ago. I went in for emergency surgery to remove an ectopic pregnancy and when I woke up the doctor said the good news is you still have both tubes and there was no ectopic, but then he said the bad news is I would most likely miscarry. I then changed doctors! I stayed pregnant for about 1 month and then I did miscarry. I am not sure if it was because of the surgery or something else, because the chromosomes of the baby came back normal. I guess I will never really know what happened. Good luck with everything!
This happened to me a few years ago. Very similar situation.
It ended up being an abdominal pregnancy...very uncommon.
The followed my levels...same as you, I had on and off spotting. They eventually went in and did an exploratory lap (went in thru my belly buttin with a scope to look around) and that was how my OB found it.
I don't know what would have happened if he didn't find it, but when oher nurses and doctors read my chart now they always say...wow, you were really lucky he found that!
Hope it helps, and keep us updated.
How far are you supposed to be? It could be too early to see the baby in the uterus or as StillTrying said it could be an abdominal pregnancy. Ask you doc about the possibility of abdominal. Good luck to you.
my week wait was worth it..... the baby is 7 weeks heartbeat of 109, and they are unsure why they were unable to find it prior to the appt. dr said it is far along enough it shouldnt have been missed.
surgery was for nothing but hopefully the outcome will be good.... thankyou everyone for your responses, hopefully this being positive up to this point will leave others with the same concerns with a good taste in their mouths :)
