This Is my first time posting .
I suffered a natural miscarriage at 7 weeks in may 2017. In June I had what I thought was a my AF, 2 weeks later I developed abdominal.pain and had some spotting.. I thought my body was adjust post miscarriage but spoke to a colleague of mine (gynae registrar) at work.. I work on a&e as a senior paediatric nurse. I was advised do do a pregnancy test and protested that I could not be pregnant as I had had a period... low and behold the test came back positive. I was shocked and devastated as the whole reason I had seemed advise was because ideas spotting.. the reality if a second miscarriage dawned on me quickly. I returned two days later and my hcg levels had dropped confirming that I was miscarrying. I was advised to Take a test In 2 week to confirmni had had a complete miscarriage. Over the next 2 weeks i continued to bleed and felt very weak and poorly. I attend a&e again and was shocked to hear that my hcg levels had risen. Over the next week my fear were confirmed and I was diagnosed with a left sided ectopic which proceeded to rupture. I was rushed to theatre and had my left tube removed. I had previously had my right tube removed 10 years ago due to adhesions from an appendectomy so now my only way to conceive is IVF.
The last 4 weeks have been extremely hard for me both physically and emotionally and I am severely struggling with anxiety and a constant gear that something is going to go wrong. I am bursting into tears all The time and feel like I am looking my sense of rational... Is this normal??
I am aalso experiencing abdominal swelling when I'm standing on my feet for over 2 hours! Is this normal 4 weeks after surgery. Any idea when my swells belly will go down? I have been very active in the gym prior to my ectopic and I'm struggling with the swelling. I just want it to go away and I want to get in the best possible shape and frame on mind before I commence my IVF journey.
Any advice would be appreciated. X
