I have had a couple weeks of roller coaster since I got my BFP confirmed by blood on 18th July. My HCG levels weren't rising as they should every 48 hours (81, 101 and 183) so my clinic told me to register at my local EPU. I went down there last Tuesday and they did a scan and took my bloods. From my scan they saw a pregnancy in my womb with just a sac but also saw something suspicious in my left ovary which they thought may have been my second embryo. I had my bloods taken which were 974 so had more than doubled since my last HCG which was a positive. They asked me to come back a week later for a scan and to have my blood taken two days later and again my numbers doubled which was a good sign. I was told if I had any pain or bleeding to go straight to a&e.This Sunday i was experiencing pain in my left side along with severe lower back pain so rang 111 who made me an apt with the out of hours doctor at hospital. I went to see them and they referred me straight to the gynae team who took my bloods (doubled again) and admitted me. I had a scan yesterday which showed the pregnancy in my uterus had significantly grown from last week (we could see the sac and yolk sac now but still no baby) and that cystic area in my left ovary had grown by 5mm. They are saying I have a suspected heterotopic pregnancy but cannot confirm as I am still very early (I thought I was 6 weeks but they are dating me at 5 and said this can be possible with a FET as they can take longer to implant). They have said as I am not in excruciating pain that they want to leave whatever is in my ovary rather than do key hole to see if it sorts itself out. I am back next week and if it has grown may need the surgery to remove it.
I know this is really rare but has anyone experienced this or know someone that has and had the surgery and their pregnancy in the uterus survive? Honestly this journey is just one emotion after another! I feel sick worrying about it and it doesn't help that you have to wait a week in between scans as it seems like a lifetime 😢
