1st Trimester

Pregnancy loss. Body still thinks im pregnant.

I recently had an ectopic pregnancy and had my left fallopian tube along with my sweet baby removed :( very painful afterwards emotionally and physically. Im home from the hospital already but im still feeling nauseous, my breasts are lactating, and im still growing and feeling bloated. Anything else I should be aware of? like still growing, for how long, and whats gonna keep happening? :( I keep wanting to throw up but I want to avoid that because of my surgery im still wearing a brace/binder on my belly. How can I prevent throwing up and what do I do about my breasts lactating and leaving stains on my bras?

  • Hi There-

    I also don't really have any advice about the physical symptoms but I went through the same thing as you earlier this year. I wanted to say I'm sorry for your loss and encourage you to take all the time you need to grieve.  Talk with your doctor about the physical symptoms. All I can suggest is having him or her check your HCG to make sure it's going down properly.

     

  • Oh no, so sorry for your loss and everything you are going through.. Thoughts and Prayers..
  • I am so sorry and hope that it gets a little bit better for you soon :(

    How about the usual anti-nausea meds, like vitamin B6 or zofran? At least to control the symptoms? I don't know if that's allowed after your procedure, but maybe your doctor can give you some advice!

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. I had an ectopic earlier this month and lost my right tube. The first day after surgery was AWFUL but each day after I noticed a huge improvement. I'm surprised your doctor didn't give you nausea meds. Please call him and ask him to prescribe you something ASAP!

    I don't have personal experience with lactating but I've heard wrapping your breasts tightly with ace bandages can help as well as putting cold cabbage leaves on them.

  • I just want to say that I know exactly what you are going through. I had the same thing happen to me last year. An ectopic which resulted in me loosing my left tube and my baby. I know its tough and very emotional. It took me a few months to get past it. My symptoms started to subside a few weeks after the surgery. I dunno if you are getting any pains in your shoulders from the gas they use during surgery but if you are just try to relax and rest. It took me a good three months after my surgery to feel myself again mentally and physically. I feel so deeply sorry for your loss. But it will get better and you can get pregnant again. You might want to try posting over on the Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss board. I found trumendous support and love from the ladies there and you might even find some answers.

    As for dealing with the emotions I suggest yoga, especially kundalini yoga (once your physically feeling up to it) and meditation. 

    Peace, love and light to you. Sat Nam.

  • I'm not sure there is much you can do but wait for your HCG to drop. I know how awful that is to lose your baby and still have all of the symptoms. I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope your body gets back in gear soon

  • Sorry for your loss.  If your breasts are leaking badly you can purchase breast pads to fit inside of your bra.
