After two unsucsesful ivf attempts and being told that i couldnt conceive naturally i was told on 23rd dec 05 that i was pregnant via natural methods. i was over the moon. Then later in the day after having an ultrasound scan i was told that the pregnancy was ectopic.
On boxing day they removed both my tubes laprascopically as one tube prev damaged due to ectopic and then this tube that had pregnancy.
I was devastated.
I received a phone call a few days later at home from one of the doctors on the gynie ward advising that my recent blood test showed that i was still pregnant.
i had another scan which showed an ongowing preg in the uterus.
what they had seen in my tubes had just been a build up of fluid which is why i found it difficult to conceive.
i am now only left with ivf at a cost of over £3k a time if i want another child.
I do have a very healthy baby boy born on 1st sept 06.
