New here, pg at 37 after an ectopic
Tue, 05-11-2004 - 3:07pm
Hi all,

I am new here, just had 2 postive home tests yesterday and estimate my EDC 1-12-05, just over 5 weeks today. I am scared because I had an ectopic pg at age 21, and am now 37, and I have never been pregnant again. But I am getting married to the most wonderful man in the world this summer, and the timing must be right. I had an HSG done 3/19/04 that showed no tube on left (ectopic) and blocked tube on right. We had an IVF consult visit scheduled for next week! How is it possible that I am pg? No pain, no bldg, so my OB/GYN won't see me for an US until Thursday. Keep your fingers crossed for me, I would love to join the due in 1/05 group!

Oh, that is an amazing story!! What a true miracle. I too lost my tube from an ecotpic and thought I would never get pregnant on my own. I was seeing an RE and doing injectibles, but I got pg on a "rest" cycle.

Can't wait to here more of this story!! Welcome to our group!

Thanks for all your positive vibes!! Just got back from OB visit, no sac but no evidence of ectopic either. Nice thick endometrium, maybe just too early to see. Had an HCG drawn today, and will repeat over the weekend. Still no pain & no bleeding so I am hopeful. I am glad to hear your similar stories. Our bodies are amazing!
