    Do you still get normal pregnancy symptoms if its ectopic????

    Ive been getting quite sharp/stabbing pains and on/off cramps, no bleeding though?

    My boobs are so sore and ive been feeling sick on/off today and ive had lower back pain too.

    Am i just panicking or do you think something maybe wrong? :shock:

    I'd say probably just panicking, but I think everyone does! In my 5th week I had cramps, sharp pains and spotting, and of course panicked every time. Can't say much to be reassuring as ever pregnancy is different, but I'd say unless you have excruciating pain (which is what they say would be the case for ectopic), shoulder pain (a possible symptom of ectopic), progressively worse cramps, or bleeding (as opposed to minor spotting), then it most likely will blow over!
    The best advice I got from my doctor was to relax and under no circumstances stress myself out. If I was feeling stressed or worried, I put on some cheesy 90s pop and really took my mind off it.

    Hope you can try to relax, it's just the hardest thing to do right now I know xxx

    I had sharp pains in my left side too hun between about 4 and 6 weeks. (I also had spotting and shoulder pain actually, so you can imagine how freaked out I was!) Anyway, I went to the doctors and got sent for an early scan to check if ectopic, as my GP took it quite seriously, and. It turned out baba was all snuggled up in the right place :) so pains can defo be normal! The lady at the early pregnancy unit told me its quite normal to get pains from the side you ovulated from for a while :) ectopic is more common if you're over 35, smoke, had previous abdominal surgery, had IVF, had previous pelvic inflammatory disease chlamydia etc... I don't know if any of those apply to you, but if not then its very unlikely hun! Even if any of them do, its still only a 1 percent chance I think.

    If your worried hun go and see your doctor. I was a bit worried about making a fuss and wasting my doctors time, but I was making myself miserable with worrying about it. My doctor was wonderful and sent me for a scan that same day, which really put my mind at rest and let me start to enjoy things a bit more, so I'm really glad I went.

    I thought with ivf the embryo was manually put back into the womb??? So why is there a higher risk of ectopic? Does the egg move and go back up the tube? I thought there was less chance of ectopic with ivf???? Anyone know how this happens? xxx

    I thought exactly the same thing hun, I've got no idea?! I just found it out from my extensive googling when I thought I had ectopic, lol. It seems really bizzare doesn't it, but its listed on a few websites as a higher risk factor. Maybe it means if you've had ivf if the past and then fall preg naturally? Xx

    It seems a lot of us tri 1 girls are having these symptoms. As ectopics are relatively rare, my money is on it being a normal symptom xxxx
