Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

ectopic and giving birth..

3 answers
i had an ectopic pregnancy last Dec. 2006. They had to surgically remove one of my fallopian tubes, and now i still have the scar in my belly.. and yes it has healed already for a long time. I am currently 9weeks pregnant and everything seems normal based on my consultations and ultrasound. I am just wondering if there's a possibility that i would give birth normally or does it mean I would automatically undergo C section since i already had this cut in my belly. I would definitely ask this thing to my OB but i just can't wait til next appointment, and it would be better to hear some from other mommies out there who share the same experience...

thanks for the replies.. it's just that when people accidentally see my scar/cut below my bellybutton they thought that I already went thru C-section but it's actually a surgery from ectopic pregnancy. I thought that having one of my removed means its the same cut as C-section. kinda confusing lol :) anyways still thanks for the answers. Gotta enjoy the holidays first before my next appointment.. 
Since your uterus was not cut into, you would have the same chances of a c-section as anyone else.But I am not a doc. So definitly ask your OB to be sure.Good luck :)
Well I haven't had the same experience but I wanted to just give you some encouragement anyways :) I wouldn't think you would have to have a c section but its always a possibility with every delivery. Normally if you've all ready had a c section they want you to do another one but I've never heard of having a c section because of a previous surgery. I would definitely ask your dr when you go back just to be safe but it looks pretty hopeful to me! Good luck! :)
