So, now it turns out that I'm not having your run-of-the-mill miscarriage. I have an ectopic pregnancy. My hCG levels have risen a bit since last week and I'm having sharp pains in my abdomen. I went to the doctor, she did an exam and that's the diagnosis. I had to have another set of blood work drawn (that's twice today!) and I had two shots in my ass! The medicine I had injected is called methotrexate. Basically it inhibits the growth of the placental cells in my fallopian tube. It's a very common treatment for ectopic pregnancies and it usually works. As a last resort, I may have to have minor surgery to remove the tissues. I really hope this medicine works!

Anyway, I've had the shittiest couple of weeks in my life. Please tell me it gets better than this!

  1. It does get better but it sure doesnt seem like it will, does it? I'm sorry about the ectopic pregnancy - they thought I had one of those during my first pregnancy. Everything turned out to be fine but it was scary waiting for results.

    Hang in there and remember were here to listen....

  2. Oh T -- I have been missing hearing from you over at the other blog and decided to check in on you and read this post and the last.... I am just so sorry you are having to go through such a huge challenge as this.

    I do very much believe you and The Farmer will only be brought closer and will get through this and out the other side.

    Just know I'm holding you in my heart!

  3. It's been awhile since you posted this comment, so I hate to even be bringing it back up. My loving wife and I went through this for several years and all we kept hearing from others is how we have our son and why can't we just be happy with that? I see you have a daughter based on your website name and if anyone has ever said that to you, you have my permission to punch them in the face. Best of luck to you and your husband. It does get better, but let it get so on your own time.
