    Possibly pregnant after Tubes Tied in 2008??
    hbeth17 posted:
    I'm just curious as to what the possibility is that I could be pregnant. I have 2 precious babies (6 & 4 years), and after my c-section with my son in 2008, I got my tubes tied...I might be jumping the gun a tad (because my period isn't due for 5 more days), but I've been having symptoms that have been getting stronger for the last 3 weeks or so.
    I am planning on taking a test next week, but I'm kinda anxious now & I know that can intensify symptoms sometimes.

    Any thoughts/advice?

    I'm not sure what the chances are but pregnancy is still a possibility.

    That being said, it's doubtful you've been having pregnancy symptoms for 3 weeks. That would mean you've been having symptoms since right after your last period and you hadn't even ovulated yet.

    Thank you for your response. To be exact, I first noticed my breasts being noticably sore starting 2 weeks and 3 days ago. I noticed it the day after my last period ended. My last period was lighter and shorter than usual. The fatigue really started setting in a week ago today & my appetite change just a few days ago. If I am pregnant, I will be excited, but I'm concerned about it being ectopic.

    The best thing you could do is go to a doctor and get checked out.
