If you had a tubal pregnancy at TEN weeks,my friend you would KNOW; unless the pregnancy died some time ago, or you are unsure of your gestational dating. At this point, it is almost certain you would have unbearable, often, one-side pain...often referred up to the shoulder and neck region and maybe vaginal bleeding, but not always........ so this brings me to ask:
what makes you suspect TUBAL pregnancy? If you do, are your providers doing serial BETA HCG levels to make sure they are rising appropriately? Has a transvaginal and/or abdominal ultrasound been done to determine a viable gestational sac IN UTERO???? If so, you really should not be in trouble, I would think.
BUT, hon if you have ANY real reason to suspect an ectopic pregnancy, any symptoms such as pain, bleeding or fever, or anything that really concerns you; you need to get yourself evaluated at an ER ASAP. As you know, tubal pregnancies can be dangerous or even life-threatening. Not knowing much about your personal history, this is all I can tell you as an OB nurse, and someone who suffered an ectopic loss very early on in pregnancy once. I do wish you the best. Pls let us know how you are doing.
