Paranoid About An Ectopic

I know I may be blowing this outta portion but I really think that my baby is ectopic. I have this faint pressure on my left side and it will give me a sudden pain not agonizing but enough for me to take notice. I am 6 weeks. I really want this baby. This is my first pregnancy so I don't really know what to expect. It is kind of like when you ovulate. I mentioned it to my Nurse Practicioner and she said it was nothing to worry about but I still can't help but worry. I want a healthy baby but I also want to have both of my tubes intact.

I had this, but it was on my right side. The nurse practioner I asked about said it was probably a corpus luteum cyst, which is actually quite common in pregnant woman. It went away in my 8th week, but it did scare me. It was a little uncomfortable, but if I pressed on the area, I didn't experience a bunch of pain, which is what I read would happen with an ectopic. I've read that ectopic pregnancies are horribly painful. If you're in a lot of pain, get it checked out. Hang in there. I'm 19 weeks now and everything is going well. Hang in there. You'll probably just fine.

Well last night at about 8:30ish I start having this horrid pain in my left side of my abdomin. I could barely walk it hurt so bad. I was crying hysterically so Mike rushes me to the ER. First thing I thought it was was a ectopic pregnancy or something to that nature. They took blood made me pee in a cup and did an ultra sound. The nurse who did my ultra sound was very sweet and even though she wasn't suppose to she let me see it. I saw my baby right where it was suppose to be. I saw its little heart beating and then she let me hear it's heartbeat. I fell in love. It was the most adorable little thing EVER!!! It really upset me that Mike couldn't see our baby for the first time with me. But atleast I knew the baby was ok. SO then we waited for like 2-3 hours to be called to do paper work then finally they took me back to see a doctor. She then did a pelvic exam and they concluded that I had a bacterial infection and prescribed me some antibiotics. By this time the pain was gone and I was feeling exhausted but much better. I am just so very greatful that our baby is right where it is suppose to be and that I was able to see it and it's little heart beat. I am in love. I can't wait for mike to see. He will fall as deep as I did.
