Hi, I just had an ectopic pregnancy August 16,11. Still recovering from surgery, I find myself crying all the time. Other times I feel fine but I am not myself anymore. I can feel myself changing and I don't like it. I get the attitude from some people that its not a big deal and I should just get over it because I was only 4 weeks along. It is still is painful. Not only that but I am reminded of it all the time. I am going to school to be a medical assistant and that's what we are learning about, pregnancy. I have a ton of friends who are pregnant. And its like more and more are shoving it in my face. Planning baby showers and posting online their ultrasound pictures. I know its not on purpose but everything all at the same time feels like it. My boyfriend is very supportive and someday wants a child. But he seems relieved that this happened. I have a 5 year old son with someone else, but my boyfriend just seems like everyone else and says I will get pregnant eventually again and I was only a month prego. What if I can't? I have never been so scared in my life. I had my son just fine before. I mean the pregnancy was so easy I didn't even have morning sickness. AND NOW THIS???? Doesn't make any since to me. I don't care how far along I was, I wanted a second child. This is the 2nd time I have been pregnant and hearing the doctor tell me I couldn't keep it, hurts. I have never been through this before. How do you cope with pregnancy loss??View Thread
Thank you. I feel the exact same way. Everything you said I have been feeling. The doctor said he cut out an inch of my left tube. He said the cause is unknown and some people just have bad luck. I don't think so. I know there is a cause. Like I said before I had my son with no problem at all. Then I had a IUD for 2 years and had to go to the ER to get it removed. That seems like a cause to me. I have no symptoms at all when I become pregnant so I went to dentist and drank for my boyfriends birthday, could that slow down the process and leave it attach to the inside of the tube? It has to be one of those 3 things. I know the dentist sounds weird but I had x rays done...anyway. Everything you said makes total sense. I tried talking to a therapist but they just seemed like I was wasting their time. Pretty much everyone tells me "you'll get over it just don't think about it." or "Well, at least your alive" No one understands until they have been through it. Thanks again. I will save your email.
