Birth control failure while on antibiotics?

I'm wondering if anyone has ever gotten pregnant while on birth control and antibiotics? Each time I have gotten an antibiotic RX, it notes that it can alter the effectiveness of birth control pills. I was on an antibiotic for a sinus infection from 8/24 through about 9/3 and DH and I did not use any other means of protection. I have had several days where I've felt just all around crappy and a little nauseous in the last week and had what felt like menstrual cramps (in the front, low in my pelvis) one day a couple of days ago (wondering if that could be implantation). AF is not expected until next week so I know the cramping wasn't premenstrual. I'm tempted to take a test just to check...I am also worried about the ill effects on a baby if I were pregnant and still taking birth control for the last several weeks. Anyone ever had their birth control fail because you were on antibiotics? Thanks.
