I had a tubal ligation in 2007 the morning after my 5th child was born, I was happy with my decision for along time. Shortly after my sosn's birth I got a divorce, a few years later I married the man of my dreams. He had a vacetomy a few years before we married and I had the tubal. Just a few weeks ago I found out that I was pregnant. I was beyond shocked because I didn't even think it could ever be a possibility. At 7 weeks and 2 days I miscarried our baby. I didn't realize how bad I wanted it until the lord took it back. My question is, if I got pregnant once, what is the odds of it happening again? My heart is completely shattered.View Thread
Thank you ladies for all of the info. Through much pushing and prodding I went and had a sonogram done to make sure that I had a complete miscarriage. To my sorrow my pregnancy was ectopic. Due to my low HCG level (it was a 2.39) the doctor told me that my body would just absorb the baby on its own. I am a ball of confusion, not sure what to think at this point. I was positive that I wanted another child with my husband, but this ordeal has been worse than terrible. I am scared that it is going to happen again and that it will be another ectopic pregnancy. The odds of us becoming pregnant was was basically 1 in a 1,000,000; but what are the odds of it occuring twice? I have thought about reversals and even IVF, but again I don't know if I could go through all of that to lose another baby. My husband won't agree to the IVF because they insert more than one fertilized egg, and he is scared to death that we would have multiples lol, thanks again guys!View Thread
