Heather F - March 4

I know there have been other posts about this recently but my dh and I did the you know what when I was ovulating (I can feel it and I have a 28 day cycles so I pretty much know its going to be on day 14 or so) and I have been nautious for 3 days now, no to mention I am bloated. I am beginning to think I might be pregnant which I wouldnt mind very much (my dd is a year old and I want a sibling for her) I am just worried because I know the sucess rate of a pregnancy with a mirena IUD is not great. Do you think its my imagination or could I be pregnant? What are the chances with an IUD? I cant test until Friday, its going to be a long week.

Hey heather, I've read some posts on the board of other ladies getting oregnant with IUD so there unfortunately is a possibility. I really hope that things turn out how you want it to --eithernot pregnant or if you are that your babe is safe. I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this- it must be nerve racking.

it is nerve racking but only because the thought of being pregnant again is exciting I just worry about the viability of a pregnancy with an IUD in place. I definantly want another baby, in fact I have an appointment at my ob March 30th to have my IUD taken out so we can ttc for #2 I just fear that I am already preg. and i am going to miscarry when the IUD is taken out. Does anyone know if they take it out or leave it in place?

You want to be pregnant---sweetie---oh I hope, I'll keep my fingers crossed so tight --they take it out, because it's dangerous that leave it in. There's a chance of miscarraige during the removal--but if you leave it in there is also...geez, I hope it all goes okay. Keep us updated.

smileful, I promise to keep you updated. Mosley12 - what is the soonest they can do a blood test?

my biggest concern is that the upset stomach goes away when I eat, which is something I never experience unless I am pregnant. I hope just because the miscariage rate is like 30% with an IUD that I am not preg.

I will be pryaing for you. I was concidering an IUD until I figured out how they work. I had a m/c and I couldn’t wish that on anyone, even my worst enemy. My mom said to me, you know the chances of getting pregnant with an IUD is really low, but you know even if the chance is there, I can't do it since the m/c rate is higher if you do get pregnant with an IUD. I couldn’t go thorugh that again if there would be any way to avoid it. (my m/c just happened, I didn't have an IUD) I pray that everything workds out for you. If you are pregnant that the pregnancy survives and if you aren't you concieve quickly and easliey after you have it removed. I will def be looking into other bc options. I am currently using the mini pill while b___stfeeding but plan to stop bf in a few months when my dd is close to a year….and will need a diff kind of bc.

Heather-hope all is going well. your in my thoughts! I'm experiencing a fraction of what you're going through--can't find the string, and I'm pretty sure it isn't out... I was so looking forward to 5 years of worry free birth control! I'm sure you did too, sucks that you have to worry to the nth degree now.
