Pregnant after My Ectopic in December

Hello Everyone,

When I had my ectopic, I searched the internet for hope from other women who went through the same thing that I had.

Congratsss Shannon, I'm so happy for you having succeed so soon after the ep. You are very lucky that things went so quick and smooth - you discovered and did the surgery. It's been 7 weeks since I had MTX and I guess this is a less complicated way but a long recovery process. Normally we will be asked to wait for 2-3 cycles before TTC again, and I'm waiting for my first one to come.

I'm so envy you. Wish you, your partner and baby healthy and happy forever~

Shannon...congrats on your pregnancy and hurray that the baby landed in the right place and everything's looking good. Being pg after ectopic is so nerve-wracking, especially coming so soon after the ep. Sounds like you have a proactive doc and a good support system in place. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well. You're welcome to stick around here for support, and to offer support to others undergoing ep, if you'd like.

Wow I just saw this--congratulations!!!! I am so happy for you that it happened so soon and that all is normal. May I ask your age?

I have just recovered from my ectopic via MTX and also must wait a few cycles. Praying for a similar outcome!

Keep us posted! So happy for you! :-)
