Pregnancy Scare

Entering our 6th week I experienced an on and off pain in my lower left pelvic. The sudden pain when I move would last about a minute then goes away.

I’m naturally a worrier especially after giving birth to V and the worry-some me has doubled and emotions have heightened with this pregnancy. One afternoon the pain was back – a sudden stabbing pain and it lingered till late night. Immediately I sent a message to my OB and describe the pain. Her reply was “We should be worried. Please go to the City Hospital and have a scan. It could be an ectopic pregnancy”

wikipedia – An ectopic pregnancy, or eccysis , is a complication of pregnancy in which the embryo implants outside the uterine cavity.

If this is the case the only option was to terminate the pregnancy as it could also cause harm to the mother. I cried myself to sleep.

C kept re-assuring me that everything will be alright.

The next day we headed to my OB’s clinic to have a scan. I tried my best to not cry of the possibility of losing our 2nd baby. While waiting for our turn to see the Sonographer a family of 3 came out the Mom was in tears while the Dad whispers to her “its’ ok..shh” and the daughter just sat beside them smiling at us.

I so wanted to stand-up and give them a hug while I was fighting back my tears, then nurse Carol told us it was our turn. I laid back and we waited for the image on the monitor. “Baby is ok and in the right place, Ate”  I was happy and said a prayer of thanks and strength for the family at the waiting area.

For the first time we heard our baby’s heartbeat.

Please say a little prayer for all the mom’s who have lost a child that they may have the strength to move on. A prayer for all pregnant ladies that we all have a healthy and safe pregnancy.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. Abigail, I’m glad to hear you and the baby are safe. I cannot imagine (having never been in such a situation) what must be going through your mind when you fear for the safety of your child. I hope you have a safe pregnancy and cannot wait to see another awesome FiA baby 🙂

  2. You brought tears to my eyes Abigail… 

    I’m so glad everything is fine and both you and the baby are well. 

    I know the feeling of worry you get. I am that kind of person too!

  3. I had an ectopic pregnancy last year and it was devastating to say the least. Thank God your baby is in the right place!

    • ohh Grace I’m sorry you had to go through such heartbreaking experience. Looking at the bright side having your new angel beside you now hopefully have erase a little bit of pain.
