Dual Pregnancy 2nd Post

I am going to ask this in 1st trimester room too. Last night after having an ultrasound because of cramping and pains...(I am 6 weeks and 5 days) I was excited becasue I saw the heartbeat and everything looked normal...that was just when I was in the room with the US tech. When I got home I got a call from my Dr saying that after being reviewed by radiology, they found I have a "dual pregnancy"....meaning I have one healthy baby in the right place, and one ectopic pregnancy on the fallopian tube. They said I need to continue to monitor my pain and cramps and go back in if they get worse...but other than that, I need to wait four weeks and go back for the US to see if everything is okay and it "took care of itself" or if we need to take measures. They said my "good" baby should be fine...does anyone know much about this? I am wondering if I should get a second opinion...Thanks.

If I were you I would get a second opinion...I have always heard that if you have an ectopic pregnancy you need to have it taken care of asap because it can rupture your tube and may even cause you to lose that tube/ovarie all together. I thought it was after 7 weeks it could start causing you major problems. I would seriously have this looked at by someone else, because by 4 weeks you'll be 10 weeks along! Good luck with everything.
