    Hey girls

    I'm still waiting for af after ectopic over 4 weeks ago and have been thinking about when I do conceive again. The nhs has offered me an early scan at 6 weeks to check baby is in womb when I do get preggers again but I'm bit worry that this will be too late if I have another ectopic, shitting myself but its worth taking the chance to get a lil baby. It ruptured last month bang on 6 weeks, doc worked out from my lmp but if u work it out from ovulation dates it happened on 5 weeks and 3 days, I ov very late in cycle. If I was to pay for early scan at 5 weeks would they be able to tell if baby was in womb? I can imagine everything being so tiny it would be hard to see?? Has anybody had scan at bang on 5 weeks? Or do u know of anyone who's had one? Some feedback wud be great. Just wana know my options so I can book one asap when I get mt bfp.

    Thanks xxx

    Morning babyg :)

    Well I was trying to get an earlier scan than 6 weeks but couldn't-the ultra sound place said they struggle to see anything that early and although may detect fetal pole it will be a internal scan. So that would provide reassurance it's where it should be.

    Eptopics are rare, the chances of you having another are really small but nevertheless I would feel exactly the sane as you about the whole thing. On the scan I had at 6w&3d they checked ovaries to make sure it was all ok.

    If you were really worried maybe pay for one at 5 weeks then have the free one at epu at 6weeks?

    You can indeed book an earlier scan privately hun - make sure the place you go offer transvaginal scans though!

    It's weird that your Dr has asked you to wait until 6 weeks though. My friend was blood tested as soon as she had a + after her ectopic (apparantely the hCG levels can indicate if it's another ectopic)

    She was scanned around 5 weeks as well, and scanned again at 7 weeks (internally!)

    Thank you so much for info girls.

    I know they shud have offered me one before 6 weeks but I'd rather just pay than waste time trying to get one earlier off them.

    Thanks carnat I have heard about the hgc levels and ectopic so will be requesting this off doc as soon as I get preggers again, god knows how long it will take with only my left tube now tho.

    I will have look on that website for further info thanks sunbeam, hope u and ur lil bean are doin well :) :)
