I have two beautiful little boys and in September of 08, I had my tubes either tied or clamped, I can't remember. I had medicaid at the time and was told that the cheapest thing would be done, but didn't know what that meant for me. Anyway, my last period was either November 25th or December 1st.. It was regularly on the 25th of each month like clockwork a few years back, but after having my second son, it moved to the 1st of every mont, again, like clockwork, no delays, etc.. Well, I'm over 9 days late on my period, maybe more, not sure. I've had *some* symptoms and a lot of dizziness, light headedness, etc. I decided to do a test today and it was a very faint positive but still positive regardless.. Even with my other two pregnancies, earlier on, it was faint results. Anyway, I'm waiting to make an appointment with a doctor because I want a blood test done and the health department only does regular pregnancy tests. I want to wait another week or so and if I still don't start, do another test so that the doctor doesn't think I'm insane. Please note, I haven't been late or have had a delay in my period for the past 3 years, so I'm hoping that it's nothing serious or a tubal pregnancy.
I would LOVE to have another child and really, nothing is stopping me financially, etc.... I am just nervous at the possibility of having another little one. Now, don't get me wrong, if I am indeed pregnant, I'll be estactic! Over the moon, even! I'm just not sure I can handle a baby at my age, plus with a 3 year old and 6 year old. I thought I was covered, etc.. I guess I'm just really a bundle of nerves right now.
Have any of you ladies experienced this? Or have had babies after having your tubes tied, burnt, clamped, etc.? And if you have, did you experience mild cramps? Anything like that? Nothing absolutely painful, but sort of like period cramps (mild) without the actual bleeding?
