About Me

Hello. I’m K. I have 1 pregnancy and 0 live births. Welcome to my ectopic experience…

I hope you find information, support, comfort, or at least a chuckle every now and then while reading.

I’m an introvert so this, my story, is something most of the people in my life are unfamiliar with. For now, I’d like to keep it that way. But I need to get it out. For my own sanity. I need to connect with others who are on the same path I am. I want to share my information so maybe others out there can find support as well.

I’m starting this blog for several reasons. Not in any specific order: 1) I love to write. Writing is therapeutic for me. Given that I went through a trauma I figured this would help. 2) To raise awareness of the serious and common danger of ectopic pregnancies. 3) To let others who have been through this and worse know that they are in fact not alone. 4) If I can make even one person feel better or comfort them in any way then I will be happy.

If I am lucky enough to get pregnant in the future I’ll continue that journey here. I will be scared and anxious from the moment I get a BFP until a healthy baby is born. Then I’ll be anxious every day after for other reasons!

I realize that my story pales in comparison to others out there. So many have been through worse. So many have been here much longer. So many have lost their lives and/or the lives of their little beans.

I am just at the beginning of this TTC infertility journey. Maybe this will be one chapter in my life. Maybe it’ll be the rest of the book. I don’t know, but I will share it.

Thank you for sharing it with me.

  1. I am so sorry you are experiencing such a horrible loss. I have not had an ectopic pregnancy, but i have had 5 miscarriages including one that we had to terminate due to a septic infection. So, while I cannot understand exactly what you are going through, I do understand the emotions around the loss. Wishing you the best as you move forward in your physical and emotional recovery.

  2. Just found this blog after searching for “breakouts after ectopic”. Thank you for sharing your story – I know first hand how difficult it can be. I just went through this unfortunately. My husband and I went through an IVF cycle in Sep and ended up receiving a positive test at the end of it but my HCG numbers were really low so they told us to prepare for miscarriage. My numbers kept doubling and tripling over the next few blood tests and then came the “falls” and “rises” in the HCG and ectopic was confirmed. I had 2 shots of methotrexate which didn’t work well so 2 weeks ago I went in for surgery to remove the pregnancy and my right tube. Now I’m dealing with anger, sadness, frustration and to top it all off – breakouts on my chin that are hormonal and big. UGH!!!!!! So not fair :(. Although I do not wish this on any woman – It’s nice to know that I’m not alone. Thank you again for sharing.

    • Ugh, that’s exactly where my breakouts were worst. It has lessened, but is not 100%. Still. Nothing is 100%, physically or emotionally. I’m sorry you had to go through it too. Your comment made my day. That’s exactly why I started this blog. 🙂 There is support here if you need it.
