Recovery

I am still in a lot of shock about what has happened. However, I think I am recovering pretty well. Thank you to everyone who has reached out, and I havent had the chance to reply to yet. 

Today is the first day I can shower since the operation, which is good news. We were able to change the bandages yesterday and ice the wounds which felt nice. Mom & hubby have been caring for me around the clock. Sleeping has been tough because I cant really move much. Its getting a little better each day though. Lets just say the ass shots havent been the easiest either, its like just stab me & get it over with because I cant roll over or lay on my stomach. 

Yesterday I got to the kitchen table on my own and ate lunch there which is progress (I had only been eating in bed).  Im also getting up and down on my own to pee now. Speaking of peeing, after surgery I couldnt pee easily at all. I had to run the water for a few minutes before it would come. Its now coming on its own! No blood or cramping, thank God.

My RE called to check on me yesterday. I told her the pain is localized to the stomach where Im cut. She thought it was excellent news that I wasnt having any cramping in my uterus as far as miracle baby goes. We will see for sure tomorrow. Such a big day. 

It is starting to sink in more mentally that we lost another pregnancy. Whether in the tube or not. She did tell me there was no heartbeat in that baby. It still hurts though. A loss is a loss. Im sure Ill be sorting through these feelings for awhile to come. Im praying that after this loss and the loss of my tube, that our miracle stays with us. Another loss would be just devastating.

  6. Oh luv you are doing so AMAZING! You are my hero right now! Of course you feel all kinds of awful right now and so much remains up in the air, but this little bubba inside of you it TOUGH! I think it’s in there for the long haul now. It’s been given a few opportunities to seek a different location and it seems pretty happy in there with you for now. Just focus on getting better, resting and being awesome! xx

  11. I remember when I had my ectopic (left tube too) it was just the worst feeling. It doesn’t make sense, and is such a cruel, painful experience. A loss is a loss, but you have hope now with the baby that made it to the right spot. Continue to focus on that. Wishing you all good things! I hope you continue to recover well so you can move past this and give all your attention to the blessing that’s nestled in, wondering what am the commotion has been!

  13. i had the exact same thing happening to me, ALSO on Sunday, at 6 weeks and 2 days pregnant. my heterotopic pregnancy was conceived naturally, which is a one in 50.000 chance according to my doctor. i was spending a weekend in the countryside with my husband when the pain started and he rushed me to the nearest hospital. i am still in the countryside recovering since i do not feel well enough to do the 2hr drive back to manhattan. yesterdah i started developing a fever, so i am waiting for my doctors office to open so i can call them for advice. i was born with a unicornuate uterus so i had only one tube to begin with. if i lose this baby i have no way of ever conceiving naturally again. i would love to be in touch via email to stay uptated about your journey and share mine – any way we could exchange email addresses?
