Ghost and ladies....possible ectopic???

Postby Alwaysangel » Mon Feb 06, 2012 11:05 pm

Last Sunday I had my first beta after 1 fresh and 1 frozen embies transfered. 1st beta 38, 2 days later 22, 2 days later 22 again, 4 days later ( today ) 113!! They are thinking possible ectopic?? I have had very light brown bleeding all week, yesterday it increased and was a little red. Also had sporadic back and side pain. Today bleeding has been red and I have been crampy and very emotional! The plan is bw on Friday and if the numbers don't. Go down then us on Monday.

Technically I would be 5w1d today.

So I did research on ectopic and IM FREAKING OUT!!! If early meds can be given or I have to have actual surgery!!! It can burst and pregnancy odds are lower!!!

What is considered early is waiting for us next week to late?? How much am I at risk at this point???

Any input wold be great! I don't know what i would do without you ladies!!!!

It does not sound like a viable pregnancy. 38...22...22...and then 113 at 5wk1d. Should be well over 1000 by now, and none of that waffling along the way. Yeah, it could easily be ectopic with a pattern like that. The scan might find it, but there is a good chance they will see nothing. At that point they might give meds to deal with it. Meds are usually pretty effective. Surgery or a rupture are rare.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

ugh... I'm so sorry.

Mine's a little different -- my betas started out normal, then fell, then crept up - now falling again.

My doctors are being SUPER laissez faire about it - which is pissing me off. It's been two months since we first learned this pregnancy isn't viable. GGRRRRRRR

Watch for severe pain or bleeding -- if that happens, rush to the ER and tell them you have a suspected ectopic pregnancy.

If they don't see the ectopic on the u/s, it's probably not going to rupture - so no real rush - but if you are anything like me, you don't want this to drag out forever.

I hope yours ends faster than mine is taking...

Alwaysangel - i'm glad you're going for additional b/w tomorrow. Did the nurse mean 1500 and not 15000? I've had 2 ectopics within 6 months of each other - one at 7 weeks and one at 6 weeks - and needed surgery both times as I was already bleeding internally. I don't know what my beta would have been with the first one, but for the second one, my 5th or 6th beta was just over 1700 and when we did the u/s to look for the sac, I already had blood pooling behind the uterus so it was too late for the methotrexate injection. And with that ectopic, I also had bleeding/cramping for the two weeks when we were doing betas, so those symptoms can still happen with an ectopic. Anyways, I lost my right tube & ovary with the first ectopic and lost my left tube with the second one, so ectopics are definitely nothing to mess around with.

I didn't want to freak you out more, your betas are still really low, but what that nurse said isn't necessarily true and I just wanted to chime in. I hope they figure out what's going on soon so you can avoid surgery. Good luck and of course feel free to PM me if you want.
