Has anyone gotten pregnant after a tubal ligation or had weird cramping?

I had my 3rd child 7 months ago via c section. I had a tubal done at the same time (pomeroy procedure). I have recently started weaning my baby from the breast and we are down to one feed a day. I am pretty sure I ovulated a week and a half ago and had sex around that time.
I know my chances of getting pregnant after a tubal are slim. However, I have had some cramping now for the past few days. The only time I have had this kind of cramping (sporadic and after orgasm) are when I have been pregnant.
Is it possible I could be pregnant? or is this psychosomatic? Or is cramping randomly a side effect of a tubal?

  • I have had a tubal myself and I totally understand where you are coming from...It was something I was certain of at the time, but I have had second thoughts since I've done it. I won't say that what you are experiencing is pyschosomatic, but I think you may be feeling as I did. I still can't watch those baby shows on Discovery without breaking into tears. You may have convinced yourself that you were ready for a tubal, but maybe you weren't totally honest with yourself as well. I think that is what I did. I still have days when thinking about having another kid makes me sad, but for the most part, I know it's over. A couple years from now , you may finally accept what you've done and the final decision that you made. It's hard to face sometimes, but there is no reversing what we did.
