my nurse told me 8 weeks pregnant is too far along for an ectopic?
Im 8 weeks, 3 days pregnant. Ive been having some pains in my sides. I called my nurse today, and told her I was a bit worried about my pregnancy being ectopic(they arent doing an ultrasound until 15 weeks) and she told me not to worry, that its probably round ligament pain and that Im too far along to have an ectopic. (note, ive never had an ectopic, or a miscarriage, but I do have a son and Im 18 years old and do not smoke). Is this accurate? I thought women could have ectopic pregnancies until 10-12 weeks along. also, I have had a pelvic exam done, and my hcg levels were normal, i dont know the exact number, I was just told they were normal. My nurse told me if I have anymore pain, to call back on monday and they will order me an early ultrasound, but if I experience any bleeding, or severe pain to go to ER. thanks! (btw, the pains are in my sides, they are mild, and kind of like pulling.)
