Confused - Pregnant or not after laparoscopy and D&C for ectopic

Hi there

Im lost for words, I am hopeful, anxious, excited but mostly scared. Has anyone experienced this?

LMP: 23/5/15
Suspected Ectopic: 1/8/15
HCG levels slow to rise: 1/8 550 and 3/8 885
Laparoscopy 3/8/15 no evidence of ectopic, D&C performed.
7/8 3000+ hcg, gestational sac with yolk found in uterus, 5 weeks old.

Not the outcome I was excepting, I felt a sense of loss and physical discomfort with the surgery but to be told that I'm pregnant days later and its in the right place left me on cloud 9. Now with the obvious concern of whether or not it will survive, not even sure how its possible to survive after a D&C. Feel like I've gotten a miracle and praying it stays with me.

Would love to hear your stories, positive and negative any support is valued

First of all (((Hugs))). We have had babies survive the D&C procedure but, you already know how risky that was. First, I think you need to complain about your doctor. that was hugely irresponsible. You are diagnosed too quickly and I have no doubt they've taken other viable babies.

Find a new doctor and please stay closely monitored. One week after the yolk is seen, a baby should be seen if the pregnancy is still viable. Keep us updated. Praying for you!

It's been a while and because of the unusual start to my pregnancy I was always waiting for something bad to happen and was hesitant to post. Although whatever the future holds it doesn't change the fact we welcomed a healthy baby into world. So should anyone else find themselves in the same boat having been told they are pregnant after a D&C there is hope. Good luck. E>
