How much do you know about Ectopic Pregnancies???

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:12pm
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
Children born to a young man are like sharp arrows in a warriors hand
Psalm 127: verses 3&4








" An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg is implanted outside of the uterus. In ninety-five percent of cases, the fertilized egg is implanted in the fallopian tubes......."

This can be a very serious situation because it can be detrimental to the life of a woman. Someone I know suffered one recently and her situation was quite serious because she was diagnosed with a bladder infection at first, but thankfully, it was later found out that she was having an ectopic pregnancy. An emergency surgery was performed and she is doing well now.

With my first missed abortion, one of the doctors I later saw, saw was wondering why they did not check if it was an ectopic pregnancy I had had. With the symptoms that ectopic pregnancy carries, both my doctor and I would have known if I had had an ectopic pregnancy, because it comes with a lot of pain and some bleeding.

I am just thinking that so much can go wrong with a pregnancy and when one has been completed sucessfully, I can fully understand why there is usually so much joy when a healthy child is presented to his/her parents. I never felt that I had conquered infertility until I awoke from surgery for a c-section and saw my son. I reached out and touch him, just to make sure he was real. He sure was, I was overjoyed because I know if he was not healthy and well, he would not have been in the room with me.

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing and is such a miracle. I remember when I was pregnant in 2006, I saw this guy at the place I was working at the time staring at me and he made it quite obvious. Soon after, he came over to me and said, I am just admiring you being pregnant and is thinking, what a blessed miracle this is. He sure knows what he is talking about and would probably think it more so if he knew that I was finally pregnant after years of struggling with infertility.
