I am so so sorry for your loss. I know there are a dew others on here who had tubals and now only have 1 tube. I personally had a Blighted Ovum in a tube during one pregnancy, but it never ruptured and I never had to take the Mx shot.

I know its a long road to recovery and a long emotional journey. Feel free to share any/all your feelings with us. We have all "been there, one that". there are some very experienced women on this board and all have great advice and great "virtual" shoulders to cry on.

HUGGGSSS and I hope you are able to jump back into the TTC action soon :)

Hi, sorry for your loss. Just wanted to give you some hope. A good friend of mine had a tubal and lost that tube but eventually got pg and now has twins. Welcome to the board

Yes, I think you have certainly come to the right place.
I am very glad that youve found us.

First of all, thank you for sharing your story. I am so sorry both for the loss of your father (how sudden and sad! He was still so young!), and for the loss of your baby, along with your right tube. What an awful, awful experience that you had to live through. Im so sorry.

Remember that it is completely normal and natural to feel ambivalent about getting ready to TTC again. Especially after such a traumatic pregnancy loss. There are so many conflicting emotions that go along with trying again for another baby. But feel free to vent all a
bout it here. We can understand, because we have been where you are.

Secondly: Dont feel bad for asking lots of questions. We were all once newbies to this whole TTC process, too. But we are all united by our losses, and we are here to help each other along on the journey. Dont be shy - I hope you'll continue posting here :)

I am so sorry for your loss, at such bad timing after losing your father. How traumatic! You have found the right place. Lots of women can relate to being scared to TTC again- and I have been in those shoes too.

I also had a tubal pregnancy. But, I wasn't so lucky to have it discovered early enough and so I endured the same fate you did and it ruptured too. I had surgery to remove both my left ovary and tube.

I have been TTC for a little over a year. I have had 3 pregnancies in that time, so it hasn't been difficult to get pregnant. I am sure you will be happy to hear that, yes, with one tube- you can get pregnant fairly easily (I average about 4 months). It helps if you know your cycles, and especially if you feel the twinges of ovulation like I do. I usually can tell when I am O'ing on the side that has the ovary, and that helps.

I wish I could offer you more advice, except to stay here and read. You will find more support than you can ever imagine... and advice and wisdom that can never be found anywhere else. This is why I stick around here, even though I have stopped TTC and am awaiting licensing to adopt a baby girl through foster care.

Welcome to the board. I know that nobody really "wants" to be a part of a loss group but there are great women here. I am sorry for your loss and the loss of your father.

My story is similar but the difference is that I didn't have my tube rupture. I started spotting and went to the doctor who did multiple HCG tests over a week. My HCG numbers were not increasing like they should and nothing was found on ultrasound. I did multiple ultrasounds over a weeks time. My HCG only got up to about 2300. I was given the MTX shot but the first time they mistakenly only gave me 1/5 of the proper dose. My HCG numbers didn't go down a week later and only then did they find the mistake. I could have ruptured during that time. I was given the correct dose of MTX and my numbers started dropping with extreme cramping and bleeding. In total, I bled about 46 days straight (from first spotting to first AF) and I found that isn't necessarily the norm.

My ectopic pregnancy was my first too so I am a little nervous to try again. Don't get me wrong, I am excited but I know I will always think it won't last. I hope we both get a baby who implants in the proper place and snuggles in for the full 9 months.
