In brief: Pain and bleeding

The classic signs of an ectopic pregnancy are pelvic pain (usually worse on one side), and spotting in early pregnancy.
If you suspect that you might have an ectopic pregnancy, see a doctor right away so that s/he can determine where your pregnancy is growing and if there is a problem. Ectopic pregnancies can be treated without surgery if found early enough, but can be life-threatening otherwise.
