Hello. I'm new to this board and recently posted my intro on the weekly check-in but wanted to ask a few questions and hopefully get some reassurance. I really haven't had many symptoms which is different that my previous pregnancies (both which ended in losses) - my previous mc's were done via fertility meds and IUI - my ex and I were followed closely and this time is so so different. I never seemed to have trouble getting pregnant, but have never seen an ultrasound with an actual growing embryo During the past 2 losses - each time I was extremely nauseus (I think anxiety with constant HCG's and ultrasounds didn't help) and I always had this dull right sided pain ... but this time, my bf and I got pregnant naturally and unexpectedly (I never ever thought I could get pregnant on my own) ... but I'm terrified ... I have had constant dull right sided aches and cramps - the pain is mainly in my groin area and can radiate around to my hip and back - the pain will occ happen on my left side but its def mainly on my right ... of course I just immediately to the ectopic idea ... my first loss was never confirmed as ectopic or a BO ... and i know once you have one ectopic you're more likely to have another so of course my mind goes there ... i'm also kind of crampy but again very dull ... and my lower back (esp in the AM) aches. My boobs feel normal, I really don't have any vomiting - some nausea off and on but not enough to convince me of anything ... I have a short short fuse and go through bouts where i just feel so angry ... my first OBGYN appt is this coming Tuesday but I've also been made aware that the office they scheduled me at, does not have an ultrasound machine. I have no idea how they're going to reassure me ... When I called the doc when I got my positive pregnancy test, she didn't seem concerned ... she said it all happened with a different partner that this time is different and unless i'm bleeding or spotting i'm fine ... but i never bled or spotted with my previous losses. Let me also mention - my previous losses my ex and I had several medical conditions that I think played a major role ... he had majorly uncontrolled diabetes and had retrograde ejaculation and I had an uncontrolled thyroid condition (which is now controlled) and I was about 60lbs overweight. I'm praying and hoping that all these weird cramps and aches are normal - i'm hoping to hear from some of you that you've been through this, and can relate, and that i'm not crazy an this is all normal. It's been a while since I've gone through this and I'm just really hoping this is it. If I have another ultrasound with an empty sac I don't think I can do this again ... mentally or physically. Any of you with similar stories, symptoms, I'd love to hear from you - any reassurance you can offer ... and FX to all of you ladies!! I know we all know how hard this is ... it's not fair that we all have to be here, but I am so so grateful to have a place where I can vent and talk with ladies who "get it." Thank you!!
