Trying to conceive

Sadly my sister was rushed in to surgery last night as her pregnancy was eptopic, she has lost a tube but I am really not clued up on it with ttc.
Has anyone had an eptopic and could help please, I want to be there but feel I need to know facts to offer the right support.

I'm so sorry to hear this Mrs-T, hope your sister is as well as can be in this awful situation. I haven't had an ectopic pregnancy but I know of others that have and I've read up a bit on them. From what I know, an Ectopic Pregnancy is when the fertilised egg implanted in the fallopian tube rather than travelling down to the uterus and implanting in there instead.
There's some info here: www.babycentre.co.uk/.../ectopic-pregnancy
The somewhat good news is that she will still have the other tube so a future pregnancy is still possible - I'm not sure she'll want to hear this right now though - the best thing you can do for her is just be there for her & be a supportive shoulder to cry on. How far pregnant was she?

I'm sorry to hear this Mrs T.
My SIL went through the same thing and she went on to have a healthy baby boy.
I hope she's ok as she can be x

She seems to be all good but still in hospital, she was around 10wks and has mentioned ttc when ready but not sure it will hit her until she is home. She lost 4 litres of blood so tbh we are lucky she is alive and relatively well. Will have a read on it tomorrow, thanks girls.

How's your sister doing Mrs T?

Evening girls, thanks for asking Holey x
She seems to be OK, have a feeling she is blaming herself for doing too much at work because they didn't want people to know. So am hoping she learns it wasn't though.

Ah no. I hope she isn't beating herself up. Sadly it's just 'one of those things' but I imagine that's no comfort to her either

Hi I had an ectopic 6 years ago and tune removal. Any questions please ask. Please tell her not to blame her self there is nothing she could have done to cause this. The baby was just too eager and implanted too early before it got to the right place. i found that in the beginning I was just concentrating on getting better so wasn't too bad but it was when I was healed that it hit me emotionally. The best thing I found was to talk talk and talk about it. Acknowledge that it was a baby and not just cells and even gave it name. hope I can help
