Pregnant - 1 year after ectopic
Hi Doc,

Posted a question on 20 July re: asking if symptoms could indicate pregnancy & you replied that they were not

Anyway - be that as it may - very happy to say that.... period did not arrive Sunday 24/7 so yesterday afternoon did a HPT - immediately positive - had a blood test last night just to confirm --- and I am definitely pregnant!

Very very happy about this pregnancy as I lost my baby due to ectopic last year (22 July) after trying for 2years. Also I just lost my Mom on the 22nd June (last month). This baby by no means takes away the hurt of losing my Mom but it certainly does ease the pain.

To all the ladies out there TTC ..... keep faith. My Hubby & I had basically 'given up' and we now have this little one on the way.

Best wishes to all

Congratulations on your pregnancy. Remember though that symptoms only start after the missed period. Many women with similar symptoms as you are not pregnant.

Best wishes
