Feedback:
An ectopic (outside the uterus) pregnancy is an emergency situation, and the nurse should be aware that ectopic pregnancy can endanger the life of the mother. Increased size of the uterus by about 16 times and increased capacity of the uterus to 5,000 mL are observed in normal pregnancies, when the fetus develops in the uterus. Increased risk of bleeding during pregnancy could be a result of various reasons other than ectopic pregnancy.
