    ectopic pregnancy
    mlk240 posted:

    My name is Randi, and I have had 3 losses so far on my road to baby #2. My 2nd loss was a ruptured tubal pregnancy that required emergency surgery, and I lost my right tube. I was in for an OB appointment, and my doctor said that he had never seen a case quite like it, where my tube had split into two pieces. Can I ask if anyone else had experienced a rupture like that? I just guess I don't feel like I have closure on exactly what happened at that point in time because I was so foggy from all of the pain killers they had me on at the hospital.

    Thank you!

    Hi Randi, I'm so sorry for your lost. But I can relate to ur situation. I have had 3 ectopic, all without any explantion. I have one tube left. My most recent ectopic was the most upsetting because on my first visit, everything looked fine, embryo was in the right place, and then I went back a week later and they could not find it. I was pregnant, blood work was raising, but they could not find the embryo. I still have the ultrasound just to prove to myself that I was not crazy. It is really sad that we as women have to go through this...I constantly ask myself why me? My left tube was ruptured and removed, my right tube is damage but still there.
