WTF? My tubes are tied! And I am having all the pregnancy symptoms I had with my daughter!

For the past I say two weeks, my nipples...not my entire breasts-just the nipples, have been extremely tender to the touch. When my mom and I went to Denny's the other day, the smell of pancakes made me want to barf. I've been nauseous every morning, though not vomitous every morning. I'm boiling some chicken, which normally doesn't bother me at all-but I want to toss everything I've eaten since this morning.
I sure hope this is just an extreme case of PMS! I JUST got over my monthly on January 25th.

  • Although slim, there does still exist a very slight possibility of getting pregnant after getting your tubes tied. If you just had your period, though, I wouldn't freak out too much. Take a test if you're concerned, or see your dr, but I wouldn't really freak out a whole lot.

  • A tubal isn't 100% - if I remember my pre-tubal counseling correctly, there's a higher chance of getting pregnant with your tubes tied than if you use condoms correctly. That said - if a person does get pregnant after a tubal, the chance of ectopic pregnancy is very high. So, if you're really having symptoms that bad, I'd make a phone call to your doc/OB and get seen asap!
