I'm new to this site am not sure if I'm posting this question/comment to the right place but I know you ladies will be nice :)

Ok so here is my story, I started having kids at a young age, I had my 4th child at 21! All my children were born via c section. Being with all born via section the doctor said it would be best for me to tie my tubes, I had problems with my pregnancies and my uterus was really thin so I took the OBs advice and had the procedure. Well my periods have always been on time and always been around 4-5 days and usually heavy, (oh and I've always wore tampons since my period first started.) well my last normal period was 4/1/12, in may I was around a week late which is unusual and I said well I'm stressed and ive had my tubes tied so I can't get pregnant. My husband made me take a test and it had a very faint blue line but it was visible. I went to the doctor to see what was going on and she did a blood test and it said negative but she told me if I hadn't started in a few weeks to then come back. Why would she want me to come back if there wasn't any hcg in my blood? Anywho I actually started bleeding that same day (at this point I was 2 weeks late) when I started bleeding it was brown and the only time I've ever bled brown was when I was pregnant. Ive had bleeding every month but it is super light and short each month and it gets later each month too. I can't even wear tampons anymore which I've only ever used.

Now it's September I'm late once again my last period was 8/10. Need I remind I had my tubal ligation 9 weeks after my c section in 2009. I now feel movement in my lower abdomen and happens around the same time everyday sometimes more. It doesn't matter if I'm laying,standing, or sitting. I have a lot of digestive problems and it just doesn't feel like gas bubbles. I feel pregnant, heck I've been pregnant 4 times but the test came back negative. It's driving me insane and very emotional!! Please some one give me some advice on what it may be...

Thanks in advance and sorry it's so long...

It does sound like you are pregnant, but you said you had a recent pregnancy test that was negative? I would go back and have another blood test done. Most moms instincts are correct, my mom had her tubes tied and two years later my little sister was born. She kept feeling movement so her doctor did an ultrasound and found she was 6 months along... It does happen. As far as your doctor asking you to come back, the blood tests are the most accurate, but if you only had a small amount of hcg in your blood she may have attributed it to a partial implantation that didn't take, or one of several other things that are known to occur. Have you noticed any breast tenderness or moodiness? If there was a faint line on the pregnancy test then it may have been a very early positive. I don't have any personal experience with tubes being tied so I'm not sure about the movement if its not being caused by a baby. This site has a lot of great advice. I would use the search bar at the top and type in movement or tubes tied and see what topics come up and you may be able to read responses others have received in the past. Good luck.

I have had my tubes tied for about six years, two weeks after my period first time ever I was spotting with cramps, the spotting tapered off, I still have cramping on and off for the last week. I went to the doctors and took a pregnancy test and STI test and also had a pap done.. .they all came back negative. I have been having food aversions, gagging somewhat and have been slightly nauseated. I am hesitant to take a home pregnancy test because I feel like it might be a waste of time and somewhat of a let down. Does anybody have any idea what might be going on??

I am going through this right now. Something isn't right. I think I'm going to take a visit to my obgyn and get an ultra sound done I'm feeling as if there is a live fish swimming around in my belly along with a lil pressure and my digestive system is not going right I have 3 children all c section my third child I had a tubal ligation done during the c section he will be 6yrs in March and I'm getting lil cramps in my vagina here and there. This is not normal. My last period came early and very heavy (first few days of January) At first when I started getting the feelings in my abdomen I thought it was maybe my nerves jumping it's going on two weeks now. I also have a lot of discharge when I wipe myself after urinating & I've been having to pee a lot during the day and night. .. could it be that I'm pregnant? Anyone with some helpful tips please I will greatly appreciate it

I had a tubal ligation in November of 2009. I have three kids all c-section. I'm 24 & now that I look back and think I wish I wouldn't have done it. For the past couple weeks I have been having this feeling below my belly button. It's not gas but feels like a small baby kick, or a pop of popcorn like some people put it. I still have my periods regularly. But this feeling is everyday and when my little sister tried feeling it with her hand she was shocked that she could. Could I be pregnant? Please leave me a comment as well.:) thank uou
