hi im 21 and ive got a 17 weeks old little girl and ive been feeling weird for the past 2 weeks, my stomach is playing up, making me feel sick, stopping me from doing house held chorse and it feels like the mild contractions i had with my little girl but ive been on the mini pill from when she was around 4-6 weeks old, could i be pregnant again?

This may be a long shot, but the same thing happened to me. I ignored it and regretted it later.

It may be galstones. I was almost 20 when my daughter was born, so age isn't an issue. Apparently it's getting more and more common in young new mums, so I'd seriously consider going to your doctor and asking for an ultrasound of your galbladder, because the longer you leave it, the worse it gets. I was admitted to hospital in February (my daughter was born in July) because I jaundiced. Ended up having to get my galbladder removed. Don't mean to worry you - it's not serious, surprisingly common, actually.

Hope this helps,

I had mini contractions for six months after my son was born. My doctor told me it was normal as the body is going "back in place" lol that is how she put it. Your body is still trying to put muscles back to where they need to go so it feels like a contraction. Some of mine were nothing and others were painful. I had nothing wrong with me they checked. Gallstones was the first thing my family doctor looked for, but my birthing doctor wasn't concerned at all. But if you think you could be pregnant then go see your doctor and have them check, walk in too if you want cause you just pee in a cup and they can tell ya. Hang in there.

If you are at all concerned I would take a pregnancy test. The minipill is most effective if you take it at the same time every day. If you do not it can make a big difference and possible let ovulation slip through. My doctor told me that the effectiveness of the minipill goes down after stopping breastfeeding.
