I found out I was pregnant last week. I have had the Mirena IUD in for 9 months. I had some bleeding about two weeks before I took a pregnancy test. The bleeding was odd for me, I don't normally have a period with Mirena, I just figured that it was the final build up of lining....I had some odd cramping (even when I do have periods, my lower back hurts, a dull ache, not cramping). I again just contributed it to the IUD.
I also noticed I was bloated and craving sweets.....My babysitter came back from Hawaii on Monday of the week before and asked me if I was pregnant. I told her no, I had the IUD in and asked her why. She said that she had dreampt I was pregnant. Im not normally superstitious but after all of the "signs" I took a test that Weds. I was shocked.
I called my OB the next day and was seen immediately for a rushed HCG and ultra sound. My HCG was at 15,000 and a mass was seen next to my left ovary. It was ectopic. I, even though we weren't ready for #3 was heart broken. This whole thing has been a horrible, emotional rollercoaster for me.
I received the Methotrexate shot. 4 days later my HCG was at 12,750. My doc said that if it wasn't at 800, 3 days later that I would have to get another one. Seriously?! I don't think anyone's levels drop that fast.
I had my second follow up HCG yesterday. I got the results today that I'm at 9000. I received my second methotrexate shot today and feel like crap.
I just want this to be over. If my levels are suitable in 7 days, I will have to have surgery. I'm tired of being poked and prodded like a science experiment.
Has anyone had two shots before with levels as high as mine?
