I am going nuts ! This is cycle 4 and every month I go must from about a week before af is due till the time I get af. Any cramp or twitch I'm convinced I'm preg with ectopic. I get over it once I get af then start to panic again just before af. I don't even know when ectopic signs starts to show. It's been 2 years sine I had mine and it was all a blur. I so much want another bub but so scared!

Oh, big big hugs.  I would be the same, I completely over analyse any twinges etc.  

From what I know from my friends experience, the ectopic symptoms start after AF would have been due, some times weeks after, so hopefully you can find some comfort in that.  

Hopefully your new bub comes soon, happy safe and perfect! bbighug.gif

I can so relate to this. I've had two ectopics this year - lost my bub & right tube in March and then lost my bub & the stump of right tube in July.

DH and I have just started TTC again and I'm due to POAS later this week. All my twinges and cramps are on the right side, so it's can't be another ectopic in there - right?

Still I'm sooooo scared it'll happen again.

Hi,
I had surgery to remove my left tube and ectopic pregnancy three and a half weeks ago, so still very fresh in my mind. I hate to say it but my symptoms began the week before AF was due. I had excruciating pain on one side and then it subsided. Got a bfp a week before AF was due.
I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. Do you have a good GP or OB that knows your history and can order a scan early? I was told I will need one at 5 1/2 weeks to check for a sac and then weekly until they see a heartbeat. It's a terrifying thought. I understand your fear completely and we haven't even begun to try again!

Wishing you all the best xx
