What are the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy?

Has anyone had an ectopic pregnancy? What were your symptoms? I went in for an ultrasound to see how far along I was. They were only able to see the sac. They told me I was very early(thinking I was around 5 weeks) or possible ectopic pregnancy. I’m not having any pain or bleeding. Just very nervous.


I didn’t have any pain until my tube burst. Before that I bled lightly for about 2 and a half weeks. But my periods are weird so I was thinking anything. I wish I would have checked I could have saved my tube.

I bled heavily around 5 or 6 weeks, and had severe pain in my lower right side. I ended up having emergency surgery and had a tube removed.

I bled horribly around 4 to 5 weeks. I got lucky though and medicine took care of it. See a obgyn and have your blood counts done daily. If they are doing daily, you are probably ok.

They should be able to tell if the sac is in the uterus or in the Fallopian tube or elsewhere. I would request to have your hcg levels checked every two to three days to ensure they’re rising properly. That’s the only way I knew about mine, plus some light bleeding.

Cold sweats on and off, severe abdominal pain, stomach pressure & nausea.

They told me I might have one too because they couldn’t see baby but they also said it was normal because I was so early 4-5 weeks. I got to go back in at 8 1/2 weeks and I was able to see her :heart: keep your head up momma!

I had no symptoms, just went for a scan and an hour after the scan I received a call from my doctor telling me I needed to go to hospital.

I bled for almost 2 weeks. Only reason I took a test was because I thought I was miscarrying since I had been bleeding so long and it wasn’t like a normal period… Test was positive right away so I made an appointment with my gynecologist and she did blood work then repeated it 2 days later. My levels went up but didn’t double. So a few days later I had an ultrasound and my uterus was empty. No sac or anything. But they saw the baby in my left Fallopian tube…
I also had pain on my left side and could actually feel where the baby was but I was ridiculously skinny at that time…
If they saw the sac you should be fine. I had my first ultrasound with my son (my rainbow baby, second pregnancy) at around 5w 1d according to my lmp but they didn’t see anything at all. Of course I freaked. I went back 2 weeks later and there he was.
I know with my aunt her first ultrasound only showed the sac and they didn’t say anything about ectopic pregnancy, they just said she was early in the pregnancy…

I had no symptoms… I ended up in the er with bad pain… had an ultrasound and that’s when they found it… she said good thing I came when I did because my tube was about to burst. I had a d&c 2 weeks prior so that’s why they gave me an ultrasound.

Blighted ovum! I had 3! Sac but no baby also could just be early but if this is the case if and when you get pregnant again you will be fine!!! I have 3 kids and each time there was a baby and not just the sac everything was normal! Good luck hopefully just to early but if not it’s ok!!! I got pregnant on my next period after my DNC. Honestly didn’t even feel like a miscarriage because there was never actually a baby. :blue_heart::blue_heart::blue_heart:

This literally just happened to me and they said I was also to early 3-5 weeks or egtopi and now im 9 weeks and going good itsjust a gray period just give it time love​:heavy_heart_exclamation: p.s. they also did this with my second born at 4 weeks its just to early to see but they cant rule out egtopic…:weary: ask for in internal ultrasound they made sure my sac was in uterus to give me some relief before releasing me.

I’ve never had an ectopic pregnancy but I have a bicordant uterus and they had a hard time finding my daughter early on.

If they saw the sac, then they would have immediately noticed the location was in the tube and would have moved to terminate immediately.

I had severe abdominal pain and started feeling weak and light headed, went to the er and my tube had already ruptured and had internal bleeding so had emergency surgery

Mine was ectopic last month only … i was also just 5 weeks 5 days my HCG also didn’t increase after 2 days … then they decided it’s an ectopic… and I had spotting also … they gave methotrexate :sob::sob::sob::sob:

Pain seriously, ER stat. ectopic after reversal of tubal and that was the end of it for the tube.

No but after I got my tubes tied and managed to still get preggo but ended up miscarrying. They were scared it was ectopic.

I hear they are incredibly painful. My manager told me her experience and said she bled a lot. I think it’s good that they saw a sac at 5 weeks. You should see babies heart beat in the next week! I’m in the same boat momma. This is my third and they told me my hcg was too low. And that I was having a chemical pregnancy. Now my OB says everything looks great. It’s hard not to stress

If they seen the sac is they seen the sac where was it located in the uterus or the fallopian? And it’s painful…bad string in the front… Not like cramps… Like pulled muscles… The excruciating lower back pain and you’ll definitely know somethings not right
