Well, it depends on which 'outside' Dr. is referring to. The uterus is 'outside' the fallopian tubes. So, though, is your small intestine...and the rest of your organs. If the baby is on the outside of all the reproductive organs, there is no way to have a vaginal birth (no access for the baby -- can't get *back* through the tubes!), so you're in for a surgery either way. If the fetus tears away from whatever it's attached to at the moment --at any time between now and as far as any prudent medical practicianer will let you get to term-- you'll be looking at massive bleeding and major emergency surgery.
Of course, it is possible that both of you will survive. It's just not way up on the list of 'likely'...
In your place, I'd find at least 3 different medical professionals with a LOT of experience and ask them to describe the worst-case and best-case options before deciding on anything.
