On Bcp Still Getting Period Pregnant

I'm so confused! I am on Ortho-Tricyclen and have been for 3+ yrs. I missed 1 pill back at the beginning of Dec. and took it as soon as I remembered the next day and haven't missed one since. I am still having my regular period (arrives at same time, lasts as long as usual, same color/consistency etc.) - I've had one the last 4 months with my next one scheduled for Monday. I have had no symptoms of pregnancy except my belly feels harder and I have a bit of acne (which I never have). I never really paid attention to my belly much before so I think it's changing but I'm not 100% sure. I had measured myself (waist and hips) back in Feb. as I was going to try and lose some more weight and I am still measuring the same in almost 2 months. If I was pregnant I would be in week 20. Don't you think I'd be really big by now??? I got my Dr.'s office to do a blood & urine test 3 weeks ago and she hasn't called - she said she wouldn't call unless I was pregnant. Aren't lab blood tests 100% accurate? Has anyone else been in a similar situation?

Um not a similar situation but hun i dont think ur preggers at all. Being on the pill and missing one day and taking it the next day...well its unheard of to get pg that fast. The pill is usually pretty resililent.(sp) If u were 20 weeks i think u'd know it! Ur probably bloated. Unless u've missed more than one pill. U cud always take a preg. test. It would definatly show up by now!

If you were pregnant you'd be able to start feeling the flutters of the baby moving if you were that far along. So I doubt that your pregnant.

Thanks for your responses. I can't imagine how I could be preg either while on the pill and having only missed 1 pill. And I do take it very regularly. I think that's the only pill I've ever missed during my 3+ years! Dumb question though ... if you lay on your back and lift your head to look down at your toes, can you really feel the lump in your belly? I am 5'5" & about 170 pounds so I don't really notice a difference when I look at myself in a mirror sideways, but I feel a lump when I lay on my back and look at my toes. It's hard in there from my pelvis to under my b___bs. When I'm sitting in a chair or laying flat I feel/see nothing. My belly is flat when I'm laying on my back and when I sit in my chair, I just feel my flab.

I'd only worry if u feel a baby fluttering..my cousin didnt show until 20 weeks and it was like "pow". Every women is different. If all u see is ur belly getting bigger, im sure its gas or bloating. U should be more concerned if u had pregnancy symptoms..not just ur belly 'growing'. And i've never heard of that. At 20 weeks ur belly wud be showing no matter what. Go to ur doc and have them test u if ur worried.
