Late period after Tubes Tied. Help!

I am 26 years old and mother to 3 beautiful girls, ages 8, 4, and 9 months.
When my youngest was born via emergency c-section I had my tubes tied at the same time. My husband says he remembers them taking a laser to my tubes but nothing else (I was a bit hysterical and he was trying to keep me calm)
I'm planning on getting my medical records to see exactly what type of tubal ligation it was. But i cant get over there until tuesday and it will take up to 2 weeks for me to recieve them! The doctor had planned to do one type but the plan change when I had to have my c section.
It took 'longer than usual' for me to heal after the surgeries and I still have some pain if I over exert the area where my incision was. Is it possible that's my tubes healing and not my incision healing as the doctor told me a few months ago?
Here is my question:
How likely is it for me to be pregnant again so soon after having my tubes tied? It was barely over 9 months ago!
My periods have been every 28 days like clockwork since my youngest was born. But I'm a week late as of today. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative.
I've been extremely hungry and tired, my breasts are sensitive, I've been peeing ALOT! And I keep having a pinchin pain on the right side of my lower belly.
I don't know what to do, other than take another test and try to keep my stress level down. But I'm so scared!!! I thought I was past all of this!!! I didn't even know it was possible for me to get pregnant until I looked it up a few days after I was late. And I also saw where alot of pregnancies after tubals are ectopic???!
Please, any advice or experience with this??

I know two girls that were born after their mothers had their tubes tied, so I'd say it's definitely possible. As for the ectopic part, I would think the chances are the same as someone who didn't gave them tied, but that's just my guess. GL!
