Hi all, I am in desperate need of some advice.
My partner and I have a gorgeous 19 month old baby girl, 5 month ago we also had an ectopic which ruptured and led to internal bleeding and losing my left tube.
We are now having a baby, (5 weeks 3 days gestation) amd had an early pregnancy scan today. I had a ultrasound and a transvaginal, the doctor managed to find the sac (in the womb thank god!) and said it is measuring the gestation that I have gave. However, there is no yolk or foetus yet, which means that they cannot rule out another ectopic. I am going back in 9 days for a follow up scan and they said by this time they should see a yolk and the babies heartbeat. they said this is normal for this gestation, however my mind is going crazy, after the devastation that we went through 5 months ago I would really appreciate some comments from mums who have been through similar. ( I have absolutely no pain or bleeding) Many thanks for your advice

we had blood tests on sunday and the scan yesterday and more blood tests. We had 2 doctors a consultant a midwife and the head of dept call us back to discuss my pregnancy last night, The yolk was seen starting to develop, but with my hcg being very high (19,900) they said that they are not classing this as a viable pregnancy. I have beeen offered to wait 7-10 days to see if the egg goes away naturally or to take tablets because the egg is growing but the baby is not. I am absolutelt heartbroken, we wanted this baby so much and I cannot bear the idea of loosing it next week. I have researched on google this and apparently the pregnancy can continue and my hormones and egg keep growing because the body does not recognise that the baby is not growing. I may have to have an operation to have everything removed from the womb if I do not miscarry. It's so raw at the moment I dont think that we will be trying again, I'm only glad that it did not go to 12 weeks and then have a scan showing an empty egg xxx
