Dear Sandra, I just want to wish you strength and hope you are able to find some peace of mind in this process. Being stressed out is not going to help you become pregnant, though I do understand how stressfull it is, waiting......Ectopic pregnancies are terrible, dissapointing, heartbreaking, destructive. I've had 4. At age 43 I delivered a baby boy, I became pregnant during my first round of IVF, no donor, third return of embryo's. How special!!! The pregnancy was nervewrecking, I remained scared....even big as a house, i was still very scared. BTW, when I was first pregnant with my son, an intern at the hospital told me it was an "empty egg". I wasn't really pregnant according to her...She wanted to give me medicine to clean the womb. I didn't take them. Four days later, during another hospital visit, it turned out it wasn't an empty egg at all!! Stay in touch with your feelings, remain calm and have a little faith. Good luck to you.
