Survivors of Ectopic Pregnancy
This, I think, doesn't bode well for the future.
It started with what I thought was ovulation cramping about Tuesday or Wednesday. It got pretty steadily worse, until I had a pretty bad fever spike not too long after I got up yesterday. Yippee skippy. I went to the ER, and eventually got diagnosed with an ovarian cyst (after a pregnancy test came back negative). On the same side as my previous ectopic. This doesn't give me a whole lot of hope for anything to happen from that side, anyway. *Sigh*
HusBrat is a sweetheart. I told him that doctors tend to recommend after the third (I think) ectopic that you quit trying to get pregnant. He said that if I have another one, he doesn't want to put me at risk for even a third, much less any further. I've wanted children for so long, yet It is nice to have a man who's far more worried about me than nebulous children.
Even though he'd been up since 3 am (he works from 5 to 1:30), he stayed with me the whole time. I don't think I could ask for a more wonderful husband.
As far as medical stuff goes, all I can do is pain manage until the cyst goes away, which is apparently likely around my next period. *Shrug* I'm in less pain right now than I have been most of the week, and for that I'm grateful.
