TTC After a Loss


Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right place... My name is Deanne and I have been married for 2.5 amazing years. We first began trying to conceive a year and a half ago with no luck. :( It really started stressing me out after the first 6 months and decided to give it a break. My husband and I never officially tried again but we weren't preventative either. I randomly found out I was pregnant May 7 of this year, we were soooo surprised and excited honestly thinking one of us was unable to but too afraid to get checked. Our excitement was cut short for only a few days later I began spotting and having mild cramps, that eventually turned to bleeding and debilitating pains in my lower pelvic area. I was rushed to the hospital only to learn that I was 5 weeks along and having an ectopic pregnancy....on Mothers Day. Since then I was able to take the Methotrexate until my count was at 0. And just took the dye test to ensure my tubes were okay. Hoping for a successful conception this month since the initial excitement has led us to officially try again. Are there many ectopic survivors in this group and if so how was your experience TTC again?

    Im so so sorry for your loss. Welcome to the board. I was DX ectopic as well. My hcg was so low that they gave me the MTX shot one time and my numbers dropped to one fairly quickly. I was 5w6d. I'm so sorry you find yourself here, and if you ever want to talk, just PM me :) ((hugs))
