TTC After a Loss

Hey guys...intro

I was on TB a long time ago and just recently decided to come back. In January I got a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after what I thought was a normal period. The nurse at my dr thought I was nuts, but I knew something wasn't right. I was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy January 23 and had emergency surgery that same day to remove a ruptured tube. I was shell shocked at the time, but have been trying to work through my feelings surrounding that. The past few days have been rough (as I'm sure they have been for many of you) and I have been feeling a lot of anxiety. I am happy to be trying again, but terrified at the same time that something will go wrong again. Irrational I know and so many women have been through worse than I have, but it's always in the back of my head. I am working on being optimistic about getting pregnant again as everything I have read says it's just as easy to get pregnant with one tube as it is with two (I am not sure I believe this, but that's another story). I hope that I can provide some support for everyone on this board and look forward to being a part of the community.

Re: Hey guys...intro

  • Welcome, @Taggarab - I am sorry for your loss. That sounds like a scary situation! The fear (however irrational) is real and (I think) completely understandable... It is definitely hard to find a balance between optimism and feeling utterly defeated. I hope your stay here is short, but in the meantime, feel free to vent or whine as much as needed. Big hugs to you.
