Pregnant On The Pill
Posted 01 July 2014 - 11:21 AM
This will make baby number 3, which neither of us wanted, especially right now. My husband is furious (not with me) because he wanted to get a vasectomy right away and I was making him wait a couple years to be sure it's what we really wanted.
Now I'm worried about the side effects of getting pregnant on the pill and continuing to take it since I have no idea when I got pregnant.

I stopped taking it yesterday. I just don't know how long I've been taking it. I don't usually take birth control but without a period, it's impossible to know when I'm ovulation. Especially since breastfeeding puts you're cycle out off wack.
Thanks for sharing the info about ectopics.I had an ectopic a few years ago and lost one of my tubes. I was only supposed to get lab work done but I called and talked to my actual Dr abd he got me in for an ultrasound today.

On Tuesday I had beta levels drawn and had an ultrasound. At the ultrasound I measured 5 weeks 4 days. We saw the gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole. The tech and dr said this can be normal around this time so I have another ultrasound next Wednesday.The next day I got the results from the beta test and my hcg levels were 17,000. The dr said typically with levels that high you see more development. Since I haven't had a period in over a year, we're not sure when I conceived so either I'm around 5.5 weeks and have high levels or I'm further along and measuring smaller. The doctor seemed positive but basically said it can go either way at this point. We just have to wait until next week.
I've had two miscarriages in the past and an ectopic. With all the ultrasounds we have seen over the last 3 or 4 years, my husband and I don't have high hopes for this pregnancy. With my daughter I had an ultrasound at 5 weeks and we were able to see her (I was just looking at the u/s pics with her). In between her and my son, I had a miscarriage. I had an u/s at 5 weeks and there was no baby - followed up once a week and nothing every developed past the yolk sac.
I know there is a possibility that it is a viable pregnancy, but I have a feeling it's not.
