So apparently I'm one of those women who freaks out over all types of aches and pains. I'm 5.5 weeks into my first pregnancy. I had an early miscarriage two months ago and it was fairly rough on me emotionally. So of course, this time around I'm highly aware of every twinge, leak, sore spot, etc, and with each symptom my brain jumps to the worst possible thing.
I've been having dull cramping mainly on my left side/hip bone/leg at night for only two nights, but I'm already harboring fears of ectopic. Even though I've talked to my doctor, and I've tried to reassure myself with saying that ectopics are rare, and that it's good I'm not bleeding/spotting, I can't shake the worry.
Forums often have stories of people currently worrying about it, or people who had horrible ectopics so bad that tubes needed removing. I'm wondering:
1. Is there anyone here who worried about an ectopic in their first trimester but later confirmed that it WASN'T?
2. What symptoms made you worry it was one?
3. Did you feel like the worry and/or your reaction to it was worth it after?
I would be really interested to hear from anyone else out there who suffered from first pregnancy freaking out.
