Hi there, just trying to get some feed back on my situation.  I had a tubal ligation 7 years ago, after a miscarriage at 10 1/2 weeks.  I divorced in August after a long drawn out seperation.  We had 5 kids and one ectopic pregnancy prior to the miscarriage and were married 21 years.

I started dating again and have not worried about getting pregnant due to the surgery and I have been taking Birth control pills to control horrible periods that I have had all my life.  My last period came 4 days prior to the white pills were due to start, so it ended obviously early and we had sex prior to starting my new set of pills.  Knowing that I ovulate at around day 9 of my cycle, and not even thinking about it, and now that I count the days, we would have had sex  day 9, 10, & 11.  Day 14, 15 I have been spotting and I don't ever do that.  Crampy, breast are super tender and full feeling, bloated, tired, and I am super out of sorts with memory, organization, ect. 

I am worried that I may have an eptopic, but the symptoms of my eptopic and what is going on now are not the same at all.  The only time I have had implantation spotting was the pregnancy that ended in miscarriage. But with my 4th child I bled alot the first few months and everthing was fine.

Everything is telling me I am pregnant, but yet I know that the possibily of that is super crazy.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jen

Hi Jen,

I don't think that possible pregnancy is a crazy thought at all!  Things happen!   I'm glad that you aren't having pain or other signs of ectopic pregnancy- that's a good sign.  Have you tried a test yet?  I'd really suggest going that route so that you know one way or another. Please update us when you can!

Tested on Saturday morning, was neg, but I figured it would be.  Still really early since I usually ovulate so early.  Still having all those pregnancy signs, but as we all know they are PMS signs too.  Guess I will have to wait a bit longer, if it comes early again it would be due 3/7. 

Super crampy, but not severe, did spot Saturday again, but then it was gone.  Totally confused here, but had a good talk with the BF on Saturday also, and he said that he was ready and there for the long haul if it is really a pregnancy.

Will update in a week, should have a official answer by then, hopefully!

Thank you !

Jen
