Should I go to the EPU. Please help.

Postby samanfajxo » Sun Dec 09, 2012 12:19 pm

Hello Ladies,

Im approx 8 weeks. Today I have been getting serious cramps in one side of my lower abdomin (where you get period pains) and im terrified that it may be a signal that my pregnancy is eptopic. The cramps have been so painful at times that Ive been doubled over in pain.

My Early pregnancy unit is a self refferal one, so do you think i should pop up there tomorrow - or are they likely to tell me im over reacting? I've been having 'normal' cramps on and off for the last 4 weeks - but these cramps are so different, at times it feels as if my ovaries are about to pop!

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks xx

Hi Samanfajxo

I am sorry this is happening but you are right to be concerned about the possiblity of an eptopic pregnancy as it a serious risk to your health. The best thing to do is call 111 and ask for their advice and then they can get an out of hours GP to call you. If they think it is serious they will tell you to go to your nearest A & E.

Good luck

Thanks ladies,

The pains still there, it's constantly there but comes in waves of severity, so i've phoned my mum and she's going to take me up to the Early Pregnancy Unit today at my local hospital, it says on the website that they accept self referrals so im gonna just go there without seeing my gp first.

Hope fully they won't think Im over reacting and will understand why I'm worried. I'll let you all know how it goes when I get back.

Bit late i know, but ectopic pregnancy is a medical emergency so i wouldnt wait. If you think it is then ring nhs direct for advice or attend a&e if its out of hours. there are other signs and symptoms to look out for too.
Hope its ok, and its just something and nothing.
I would like to add that in this pregnancy and my last one i had cramps as well at about 6-8wks which were quite painful and not like the af type pains i had been having before. The first time i knew it was a cyst as it had been doagnosed on early scan (i also knew i had an intrauterine pregnancy ) the second time it was the same pain and on my 12 wk scan the sonographer confirmed that i had a cyst as well. But it had settled itself and i didnt have any other symptoms otherwise i would have taken muself to a&e.
Good luck x

Hi ladies,

Thanks for all your concern and advice.
I did go to the EPU. I was then sent over to A&E with suspected appenidicitus! I ended up getting admitted over night, I had a scan the next day to rule out ectopic pregnancy - everything was fine :D.
I got sent home on Tuesday evening and had to return Thursday for an abdominal scan to check my appendix, everything seemed normal (no appendicitus) and the sonographer showed me baby again, it looked so different to how it did the day before - they grow so quickly!

So everything is fine baby wise - im on anti-biotics as the docs think it's some sort of infection.

Thanks for all your concern again ladies, so kind of you. Hope you're all well xxxx
