I have a burning feeling in my right lower abdomen so i went to the doctor and found out i was pregnant. I also have a 3 month old. Could this be a ectopic pregnancy?

  • I had an ectopic and some signs are not just a burning feeling but a stabbing feeling on your side. You also will find it hard to walk. You will also bleed but it wont be normal monthly colored blood, itll be like a purple because its internal bleeding not menstrual. You also wouldnt come up with normal levels hormonally that double like most pregnant women. You also might not come up positive on a urine test. You also would have internal bleeding with so much pain before you reach 12 weeks you would either die from the rupture or have emergency surgery. Hope that helps.
    Have them do an ultrasound if youre worried.

  • Possibly, I guess. Didn't they do an ultrasound?

  • Sorry, I was thinking you said three months pregnant. I wouldn't worry too much about the ectopic part, just make sure you're getting your regular prenatal care so any problems can be discovered right away.
