Have you or anyone you known had a tubal pregnancy?

What are the symptoms of a tubal pregnancy? I have read up on some of it and I have some of the symptoms and I am worried but it also can be normal but I don't remember having these symptoms with my son, I have a doctors appointment in 2 weeks, but should I wait that long? I have read that if you wait too long that it can cause damage and even kill the mother :( I dont know what to do. I think I am going to call my doctor and see what they say... How popular is tubal pregnancy? Ugh. I am worried.

  • my sister had one she was only a few wks along and her stomach had swollen up and looked like she was about 6 months pregnant and she ran a high fever. She had to have surgery. Afterwards she developed ovarian cysts and had to go in and get them removed..but she has 2 babies now...she still gets the cysts often and has to get them removed
