Let me first say Hmmmm.....

And then--can you clarify what you mean by "partial hysterectomy"?  Exactly what was removed?

Partial hysterectomy: In a partial hysterectomy, the uterus is surgically removed but the cervix is left in place. Also called a subtotal hysterectomy.

That is the definition of a partial, so if your uterus is not there how do you get pregnant?

What exactly was removed? Noone can help without more info.

Hi, I was wondering what you ever found out about your pregnancy after having your partial?? I feel i'm having the same problem. Please let me know how it is going and if you've found any answers.

I had a partial 12 years ago I have both my overies and some of my uterus and I think they clamped what was left of my tubes. I am having all the signs of pregnancy. I would be 5.5 months now my stomach is large and I have gained 15lbs I feel it moving. In the beginning I had nausea and cramping then I noticed a little pouch in my stomach. It has continued to grow and grow. I still get a period as I did after the partial. the hormone has yet to show up. and they could not see any sign on the ultra sound. I am thinking it is hiding behind my bladder?? I believe I am pregant. I had 3 other child. But I can not prove it medically very frusterating

At 5.5 months, there is no hiding a pregnancy behind a bladder.  It would show on an ultrasound.  It would show on any urine or blood test.

You are not pregnant.
