How do I know I’m still pregnant?
The most conclusive way of finding out is to have an ultrasound done by your doctor or midwife to see baby’s heartbeat. I say “most” conclusive, because even with an ultrasound, if you are early in your pregnancy, it can be difficult to see or detect a heartbeat with 100% accuracy.
Where would it hurt if you had an ectopic pregnancy?
Often, the first warning signs of an ectopic pregnancy are pain or vaginal bleeding. There might be pain in the pelvis, abdomen, or even the shoulder or neck (if blood from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy builds up and irritates certain nerves). The pain can range from mild and dull to severe and sharp.
At what gestation does an ectopic pregnancy occur?

How long can an ectopic pregnancy go unnoticed?
How long can it go unnoticed? If it’s not picked up in a scan, an ectopic pregnancy can go unnoticed for the first 16 weeks of pregnancy, until the fertilised egg is large enough to cause significant pain. However, it usually creates symptoms earlier than this.
