Acute hemoperitoneum is rare in pregnant women. The authors present two cases, the first with a history of salpingectomy and the second, with a history of cesarean section. The first case, but not the second, was associated with rupture of a gravid uterus, an obstetric emergency. These cases of third trimester hemoperitoneum were unusual because the first case involved uterine rupture after a history of laparoscopic salpingectomy (a relatively minor surgery), but the second case did not involve uterine rupture after a history of cesarean section (a relatively major surgery).
