Generally, tubal ligation is considered permanent treatment to end fertility.  The times that women get pregnant after having it are usually later on (not so recent after having it) and because of two main reasons.  First, if the clip method was used, the clips come undone.  Second, scar tissue forms in such a way that it kind of fuses the tubes together.  Unfortunately, tubal pregnancies (or ectopic) are very common after tubal ligation.  Those are not viable pregnancies and dangerous for the mother.  I am guessing you're just having a weird pregnancy but since you kind of know what you are doing here (have had other kids I'm guessing and your mom got pregnant after a tubal)---  you should get checked.  You can take a home pregnancy test but they don't always give an accurate result if it is a tubal ectopic pregnancy.  So, in this instance, I'd say it's best to do a test in your doctors office.  Let us know!!
