could this be an ectopic pregnancy?

I should be about 9 to 10 weeks pregnant. When I went for my first sonar on the 10th dec ( I should have been about three to four weeks at the time) the doc said they could not see anything but my tests kept showing positive, I had some light bleeding which stopped after a few days. they told me to come back for another sonar at the end of feb but now I have this constant numbness in my right side of my body and this pain in the right side of my uterus. I dont know what is going on? pls help.

An ectopic pregnancy is a possibility. This usually causes quite severe pain though. It is more than a month since your last scan in December, so something should show up by now. Go back and see your doctor.

The pain from an ectopic pregnancy is excruciating, and you would have had other complications by now. Most ectopic pregnancies are picked up at around 6 weeks.
I wouldn't worry about it being an ectopic pregnancy.
Why not phone your gynae though, as you are obviously worried.
