I am 44 and 8 yrs ago I had a tubal ligation after my youngest son was born. For about a year now my periods have been very irregular which I chalked up to perimenopaus. I was also gaining weight which I also attributed to bad eating habits and the middle age slow down of metabolism. A few weeks back I was sitting at my desk at work. My pants' waist bands have grown tight and this particular pair was digging into me pretty good. Out of the blue I felta flutter against the band just like you do when you are first able to feel movement during pregnancy. I stopped and analyzed and I wasn't gaseous at the time! Since then I have continued to feel the movement. I have had other marked pregnancy symptoms, strong sense of smell, along with food aversion, nausea, abdominal cramping, fatigue, moodiness. I've taken 3 home pregnancy tests and all were negative. And one urine test at the hospital was also negative. But I've read a lot of stories of women who turned out pregnant who had negative tests at first. I've read and read about tubal ligation. Every site admits there is that 1 in a thousand. They always warn against ectopic
pregnancies which I don't have any of the symptoms of that. BUT beyond that I cannot find anything about those other, I don't know, 1 in 10,000 who actually did get pregnant and it wasn't ectopic and they carried to term. I have a neighbor across the street whose daughter is 2 weeks older than my 8yo. My neighbor had had her tubes tied, she had
4 false pregnancy tests and yet here she is. Ijust wish I could find some support from some other women who had
tubals but ended up pregnant. Why do doctors alway
s assume that if you've had a tubal you can't be pregnant if you could be that 1 in whatever? And my most nagging question is, If I'm not pregnant why do I continue to feel movement, and if people want to say it's ibs or anything else like that why would it respond to my husband's arm laying across my abdomen or why would my belly which is shaped exactly like a pregnant belly continue to grow to where I can't wear any if my pants even though I have lost
weight because of the nausea? Anyone have any ideas? Anyone know someone who had a baby after a tubal?
