Could I be pregnant?

My husband and I are preventing pregnancy with birth control, but also wouldn't be upset if we had an "oops"! This week (week 2), I missed sunday's pill (just forgot to take it), and we had sex that night. I did take Monday's pill, but then forgot Tuesday AGAIN (we also had sex Tuesday afternoon)...I KNOW! Seriously! But in my defense I was working nights (I am a NICU nurse and my normal schedule was thrown off so I forgot). Today, which is Friday, I have had sore boobs, some cramping, and then during a neonatal conference I went to the bathroom and noticed some slight spotting when I wiped (TMI?)... Is it likely I am pregnant, or more likely I am having breakthrough bleeding?

For our first planned child, I went off the pill, and 2 weeks later took a positive pregnancy test, so I do know it is east for me to get pregnant...

You should take a test next week or just before you're expected period cause it could be a possibility. Or maybe your hormones are out of wack because of the mess up with the birth control. I think a side effect from the pill is breast tenderness. I would take a test regardless though just to be safe.
