I'm on my second one. These are the symptoms I have experienced: implantation bleeding (with the first one I had a regular period.. .this one was only the brown or pink discharge for 5 days), spotting off and on, pressure on my lower side when laying on my stomach, this time I have noticed a burning sensation in my side (I didn't notice that last time, but last time I didn't know I was pregnant until too late), you would definately have a positive preg test. If you have a rupture you would know it. Pain that you cannot imagine!! (I would rather give birth 50 times over.. I know b/c I've had both), dizzyness or pa__sing out, more bleeding, If this happens to anyone CALL AMBULANCE!!!! do not fool around with it!!!!! Best of luck... I'm sorry if I sound so pessamistic. I go to the hospital tomorrow for a shot a methotrexate to terminate this one. It's just terrible

DO YOU STILL HAVE PG SYMPTOMS AND EVERYTHING ELSE WITH A NORMAL PG? HOW LONG DOES THE PAIN CONTINUE FOR UNTIL YOU REALLY KNOW YOU HAVE AN ECTOPIC PG? i DONT HAVE A U/S SCHEDULED FOR ANOTHER WEEK, DO YOU THINK THEY CAN DETECT SOMETHING THIS COMING WEEK OR TOO EARLY?>
