Signs & Symptoms of Ectopic Pregnancy – ModernMom

by pregnancy journalist
If an egg is fertilized in a fallopian tube, it is an ectopic pregnancy and cannot result in the healthy delivery of a baby. A tubal or ectopic pregnancy can also be life-threatening if left untreated, according to the Mayo Clinic. While a tubal pregnancy is devastating to a hopeful mom, the good news is that successful detection and treatment of the condition increases your chances of future healthy pregnancies. Vaginal Bleeding Light vaginal bleeding is usually one of the first signs of an ectopic pregnancy, according to the Mayo Clinic. If the bleeding becomes heavy and is not associated […]

my ectopic pregnancy

by pregnancy journalist
If you’ve seen any of my Instagram stories within the last week or so, then you probably have a good idea of what’s in this post. But I still feel the need to write about it. Because that’s just what we do here. That’s what this place is for. Feel free to skip if you don’t want to read anything having to do with fallopian tubes. We weren’t trying for a baby. We honestly were’t even considering trying for another until maybe next year sometime. (At least I wasn’t. Tyson would’ve already had a newborn wrapped to him right now […]

Your body after an ectopic pregnancy — The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust

by pregnancy journalist
What is Chlamydia? Chlamydia is a hidden bacterial infection which affects the neck of the womb (cervix), womb lining, fallopian tubes and pelvis in women. It is sexually transmitted, affecting the urethra in men and women, and occasionally it causes eye infections (conjunctivitis). It can persist for many years and, if left untreated, it can lead to pelvic infection, fertility problems, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain. It is thought to be responsible for about half of all ectopic pregnancies, particularly in women under 25 years of age. It is transmitted through sexual intercourse and, the more people have sex […]

How to help someone who has experienced an ectopic pregnancy — The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust

by pregnancy journalist
We often hear from family and friends of people who are going through or recovering from the ordeal of ectopic pregnancy. Many want to know how best they can be there for their loved ones. Some of the women that we have supported have movingly shared their stories and acts of kindness that have helped them through one of the most challenging times in their lives. My fiancé ran me a bath, washed my hair then left me to have a cry. He came back to dry me off, put me in my PJs then snuggled up in bed whilst […]

What is an ectopic pregnancy? — The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust

by pregnancy journalist
Ectopic pregnancy is a common, occasionally life-threatening condition that affects 1 in 80 pregnancies. Put very simply, it means “an out-of-place pregnancy”. It occurs when a woman’s ovum (egg), that has been fertilised, implants (gets stuck) outside the womb. The most common place for an ectopic pregnancy is the Fallopian tube but there are many other sites where an ectopic pregnancy can be located. It is, sadly, not possible to move an ectopic pregnancy into the womb to allow it to grow normally. Each month, before a woman has her period, one of her ovaries produces an ovum that is […]

London to Newcastle — The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust

by pregnancy journalist
We often find that partners find it hard to express how they feel coping with the grief of losing a baby and potentially also losing their partner. Daniel Rush has decided to raise awareness and funds for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust by  cycling from London to Newcastle in July with some work colleagues.  He has found it cathartic sitting down, thinking and writing an honest and open account of how harrowing the past 4 years have been for Laura and himself. Dan’s Story – The Man’s Perspective: “Over the last 4 years Laura and I have been trying to start a […]

Video of baby from ectopic pregnancy shows clear humanity of preborn

by pregnancy journalist
A video shared on Facebook of an eight-week-old preborn child who had to be removed because of an ectopic pregnancy is proving that human life begins at conception and that abortion takes the life of a human being. Jonathan Van Maren, communications director for the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, originally shared the video two years ago, but it is now gaining more attention through the Nurses&Midwives4Life Ireland Facebook page. WARNING: The video below is difficult to watch. The heartbreaking video shows the preborn child moving his or her tiny head and limbs just as any baby, born or preborn, […]
