How many have got pregnant with Paragard IUD in place?

I'm 21 years old and I've had the paragard IUD in since November of 2011. At first my period lasted about 3 weeks (because I had had implanon in for three years prior to the paragard) so it was my body getting used to my hormones coming back. My period comes every 28-29 days. It's never late. Only time I was late or missed my period was when I was pregnant with my daughter, who's now 3 1/2 years old. Well anyways. A week or two ago, I noticed my boobs (especially my right one) was tender and almost painful. Then I realized I had a hard lump in my right breast. So, I schedueled a doctors apt and went in last Wednesday (2-18-12) and he felt them, and right away his first concern was that I'm pregnant. Well I reminded him, he was the one who put my IUD in so I shouldn't be able to get pregnant. My period was supposed to come either that day or the next. He had me take a pregnancy test (urine) and it came out negative. But now its a week later and I still have not gotten it. My boobs still are painful, hurts more in the mornings when I wake up. I spotted this past weekend, and once during sex. But it was pink/brown. Not really red at all. Has anyone else had things like this happen and then turned out you were indeed pregnant? I'm thinking I was just to early taking the urine test at the doctors cuz he had said their tests usually show 5-7 days AFTER your missed period.

I had a false negative with my first. Since this is an old post, what did you find out?
