Had a tubal litigation & doc told me I was pregnant today

I have a daughter & a son.My daughters pregnancy went smooth & had her 3 hrs after getting to the hospital( except they couldnt get the epidural in due to my arthritis).After all I went through during my 2nd pregnancy, I decided to have my tubes fused together. I had a dozen ultrasounds with specialists who said my son had symptoms of a severe form of downs syndrome & he'd only live to be 2 weeks old.After I delivered him on the floor of a fire station,we had 3 brainscans done, & on the 3rd one,they said his cyst on his brain tissue dissolved all on its own! My miracle turned 5 today ;D. I told my doc my symptoms of being dizzy,loss of hair,stomache pains,& my boobs are full & very sore the past 2 weeks (yes im lactating) he says im pregnant & drew blood to send to a lab. He also said 10% of women who have tubes tied get pregnant afterwards. We have to wait 2 days to see if i'm having a tubal pregnancy & will need surgery since it can kill me . I'm trying to stay calm,but this has me really scared. Just needed to get it off my chest!


UPDATE****Just called doc office & receptionist said they got the blood test results in but doc is with a patient & hasnt seen it yet.She did tell me theres alot of writing,but she cant understand it the way he can.If I'm not pregnant,theres something wrong either way. I'm just staying strong for my babies & know I'm extremely lucky to have such a strong support system!!

After this, go back in and get those tubes cut and cauterized! It's way more reliable than fusing, since obviously, they can unfuse.  GL in there.

Good luck with everything. I had mine cut tied and burned so I don't get pregnant again.

Yikes.  Hope everything works out well for you.  You had the procedure 5 years ago?
