Pregnant While Taking Birth Control
Samantha_77 posted:
For those of you who have found out you are pregnant while on birth control, did you find out only because of a missed period? Did you have any break thru bleeding? What made you believe you were pregnant?

I wasnt on birth control but up until week 5 I ate like a total cow like Every Day!! Like Melissah210 said, you're first clue might be that you feel like you're starving to death!

Thank you, did you have your normal period while still taking your birth control then? This would be my second pregnancy, the last time was a planned pregnancy so I knew what to look for. This time I'm not so sure since I have been on birth control.

I was on BC and never missed a day or took antibiotics so this baby was just meant to be I guess! lol

My periods were very normal and my first tip off to pregnancy was the fact that it was 2 days late. My boobs were sore and heavy but felt like they did every time before my period. I tested and was positive.

Good luck

My periods were normal, had i not been to mcdonalds and ordered the entire menu i would have not noticed.

I was terrified, I was at the time partying heavily, I was drinking tequila heavily and did coc, i didnt do it everynight and when i did i didnt do alot but for the fact i did it the little amount i did it scared the living beejesus out of me.

Its crazy how your life changes tremendously, at the time i was young, carefree, no responsibilitys, and partyed like it was my last. Im very grateful to have my daughters and wouldnt change it for the world and cant wait for #3 to come into this world..

Good luck hun. and always listen to your guts.

I was the same way. been on the same BC pill for almost a year, never missed a pill always took it at the same time, no antibiotics, nothing. I never missed a period but the fact that my boobs went up almost a full cup size in one month kinda freaked me out. took a home pregnancy test and boy was i surprised!!! like you said, guess this little one was meant to be!!! <3

Thank you all. I have a 5 month old and am just nervous about having another baby so soon. I appreciate all of the information.
