What Is an Ectopic Pregnancy?


An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg implants outside of the womb (uterus). One way is for a fertilized egg to implant on or near the fallopian tube, which carries the egg from the ovaries to the uterus. In this case, the woman will experience symptoms like changing in her period and spotting (periods), vaginal bleeding, pain or cramping during sex, dizziness or fainting, nausea and fatigue.

The other way that an ectopic pregnancy may develop is for a fertilized egg to implant on or near a separate organ in the body called a gestational sac. The gestational sac is located in the abdomen between the bladder and rectum. If this happens it can cause severe abdominal pain and cramping as well as vaginal bleeding which may last for weeks after you have had your period.

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the developing embryo implants outside the uterine wall. A fallopian tube is often a site for an ectopic pregnancy. The fallopian tube may become blocked or damaged, preventing the egg from traveling to the uterus and implanting in the wall of the uterus.

What are the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy?

  • Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Symptoms may include:
  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Bright red blood in your urine or stool (hematochezia)
  • Bloating, swelling, or weight gain
  • Nausea and vomiting

Things To Do While Pregnant

The best way to deal with the boredom and stress of pregnancy is to make sure you have plenty of things to do. Here are some ideas for things you can do while pregnant:

Take a class. You might not be able to take your favorite dance class, but you can join or start a class that will help you learn about your body, gain strength and flexibility, or just get away from it all for a bit. You'll also be able to talk with other parents who are going through the same thing.

Volunteer at an animal shelter. Many animal shelters have volunteer programs that allow people to help out while they're pregnant. They'll often give you free housing and board in exchange for your time, and some even offer paid positions after the baby arrives! There are many organizations that offer volunteer opportunities during pregnancy as well.

Start a blog or keep a journal. If you're already writing on a regular basis, this is another great way to keep yourself occupied while pregnant and find new ways to share your thoughts with others. If you don't feel comfortable blogging yet, try keeping a journal instead - it's just as fun!

There are so many things to do while pregnant. Keep active. Exercise is a great way to stay in shape and have fun at the same time. It can also help you maintain your weight and keep your energy levels up.

Exercise during pregnancy has been shown to decrease the risk of gestational diabetes (a condition where glucose builds up in the blood).

Find something you love doing. Choosing a hobby or pastime that's enjoyable for you and your baby will make it easier for both of you to stay motivated during this exciting time in your life!

Take advantage of pregnancy classes or other prenatal education programs offered by local community centers or hospitals. These classes may include everything from nutrition advice to exercises designed to help relieve back pain, improve circulation and increase flexibility.

Get plenty of rest as it's necessary! Sleep is essential for a healthy pregnancy — even if it's just five hours a night! Your baby needs time to grow in your womb, and if he or she is getting enough rest time while there, they'll be happy too.
