ok so here is my story. I have a 7 year old (today), 4 year old and one who will be 9 months (in 3 days) well ever since I had my 3rd baby 9 months ago I get bad cramps and my stomach will hurt really bad when I am about to start my period well when I called my OB's office and explained it to the nurse she told me I could try to stop my periods with my birth control pills to see if that helps. (How you do that is take all the blue pills, but when it comes to the inactive pills not to take them to go straight to a new pack) so I tried that and it did help, but problem was I bled for 2 and a half weeks and I didn't want that either. (she told me I might have break through bleeding which she said was spotting, but she didn't tell me it was going to be that long and she said it was spotting this was lighter than my normal period, but deffinatly more than spotting) well anyway I decided not to do that because I didn't want to go that long with bleeding. Well after I went back to a period I went back to my stomach hurting when I am about to start. It was hurting so bad that I was bending over to put pressure on my belly or I would lay on my belly. I decided to make an appointment with the actual doctor and he asked me if I only did it that one month? I told him ya cause I didn't want a period for 2.5 weeks either lol. So he told me that I would do that, but eventually it would stop because I wouldn't have anything to bleed from. So I tried that again, but this time I was actually spotting and it was off and on for 3-3.5 weeks. But I was also having trouble breathing and didn't have that until after I got on the birth control when the baby was 4 weeks old so I thought it was maybe from that. I stopped taking the pills at the beginning of this month, but dh and I are using condoms now. I haven't had trouble breathing since I stopped them, but I also haven't had a period this month either. So I spotted off and on between March 17 through April 7th or 11. And I haven't had my period yet. I am freaking out. I have 3 kids with my youngest being almost 9 months she would be about 19 months if I were to have a baby. Plus my family would freak. The other 3 kids were planned. DH is getting a vasectomy on June 22nd, but now I am freaking that I haven't had a period and tomorrow is the last day of the month. I didn't have strong cramps at the beginning of the month like I was about to start and had them for over a week, but then they went away. We can't afford another which is one of the reason's dh is getting fixed, plus with my scoliosis I have gets worse after every pregnancy. DH can't get fixed no sooner cause he has to schedule time off work with what he does they want him to take off at least a week. But if I truly am pregnant I don't believe in an abortion, but I am thinking of adoption I told DH if I was pregnant I was giving up the baby because we seriously cannot afford another baby. But I feel bad for thinking that and I would at the same time feel bad since I had 3 other babies. Someone told me after that if you stop your periods with the pill and you have break through bleeding and have sex you can get pregnant. Nice to know....why doctor never told me that. We had sex a few times when I was very lightly spotting so now I am freaking ever since someone told me this.Answer Question
