Heartbroken, I feel lost.

Post by araalc91 »

I shared with my best friend that my husband and had been trying to get pregnant for 6 months and had been unsuccessful. 2 months later she texted me her BFP, at first I was so happy for her and something told me to take a pregnancy test and there in my amazement was my BFP. Now at 7 weeks exactly like her I have been having right side pain and light spotting I went to the ER and they told me it might me an ectopic pregnancy, but it was too early to know since they couldn't find anything on ultrasound. Here I am feeling guilty for not answering my friends calls and avoiding her since I found out my pregnancy might be an ectopic while her pregnancy is going great. I try to not feel this way but I just think if mine does end up being an ectopic, then everytime I see her child I'm going to be heartbroken because my precious baby would be the same age.

Dear araalc91,
I am so sorry to hear of the worrying time you are going through.
I know you have read my reply on the other post you have commented on mentioning that feeling this way is completely normal and I do understand you not wanting to be with your friend right now.
If you are concerned your friend will be upset that you are avoiding her, you could tell her what is happening so she has some understanding, even if you do not want to be in close contact with her at this stage.
I am sending positive thoughts for a good outcome for you but we will be hear to lean on if needed.
Sending much love,
Karen x
