First Pregnancy is an Ectopic Pregnancy :(

I'm 42 years old, have PCOS, was recently diagnosed with mild hypothyroidism, and went through my second fertility treatment (Clomid and Ovidrel after a first round of Ovidrel). I got a positive pregnancy test on February 14, and was naturally very happy about it, only to discover that things didn't look good on February 20, as my HcG levels had actually fallen, was told that I was being monitored for a possible ectopic pregnancy on Feb. 22, and then it was confirmed on Feb. 26. I had my second Methotrexate injection two days ago. My HcG levels then rose and have now plateaued. I'm 5 weeks along (7 weeks if they add 2 extra weeks), and they still can't see where the blastocyte implanted but it's not in my uterus.
This was my first pregnancy after so many months of trying to conceive (I had actually started that process in October 2011 but had to interrupt it when I started experiencing heavy bleeding from an abnormal period in March 2012). I'm very disappointed and feel very alone. A part of me is happy and grateful that I got this far but a big part of me feels terrible. Would appreciate some support; most of my friends are younger than I am and either don't want/have kids or are successfully pregnant/are done having kids. Thanks in advance
