hi everyone, I think im being completely irrational.

dh has snip 18 months ago samples both clear and said no viable sperm etc.

anyway im not due on for 4 days but I have all the symptomsim scared

I was in the shower and when the water touched nipples it hurt! I have this awful shooting pain I have only ever had when early pregnant.

I had spotting a few days ago which I never had before unless pregnant!

I feel icky but could be stress of it all and me driving myself mad!I also have alwful ligament pain when I sneeze or get up to quick .. again only got this in early pregnancy.

its impossible isnt? there isn't a chance obviouat there is something else here maybe coming down with something.It's too early to test .. don't want to talk to anyone else as they will think im insane .. which I probably am

my partner had on done over 10 years ago before we ever met.it didn't bother me at the time cause I didn't think I wanted kids but now I am 6 months pregnant so It can happen

I'm on my 2nd post vasectomy pregnancy. It can happen

ladythatlunches Sat 01-Mar-14 11:59:33

wow did your partner have the test after?

It's not impossible. Extremely rare, but it does happen. Get a First a Response kit stat.

ladythatlunches Sat 01-Mar-14 12:52:11

im at home with kiddies. if I asked dh to get me one he will think im loopy.

today the pains have stopped just exhausted but that's just part of package of being a mum and hopefully period coming.

Mintymoomoo Sat 01-Mar-14 13:56:35

No my friend had 4 planned children, after 1st 'V' she found she was pregnant, whilst pregnant her DH had it done again and results came back that it hadn't worked so they were very carful and after the 3rd time they got the results it had worked

I know someone who had a pregnancy post vasectomy - her husband's "tubes" took a while to repair themselves so they'd had clear test results. He went back in for another op and they ensured that the vasectomy was irreversible this time!

ladythatlunches Sat 01-Mar-14 14:48:58

it's scarey isn't it.

Although I would always love another baby we just couldn't have anymore. dh had a vasectomy for a reason.

Someone I know had a vasectomy, as they were happy with 2 children. They didn't wait the recommended time (is it 6 weeks?) to abstain, and she got pregnant with triplets! They now have 5 kids!

ladythatlunches Sat 01-Mar-14 17:31:37

oh goodness. yes roughly that but they need to ahem release them self's something like 40 times before they are clear, then they have the tests.

wow triplets. . we have twins smile

Any update??

ladythatlunches Sun 02-Mar-14 19:40:34

hi, no nothing to report a part from pulling ligament pain again. But that in its self really isn't a sign.

I sick feel sick and exhausted but these are signs of my period I get every month.

If I manage to get out with the little ones tom ill grab a test as 2 days left till due on so im sure it would show and then I can stop thinking about it.

ladythatlunches Mon 03-Mar-14 17:35:59

UPDATE:

DH went to shop last night and got me a test. sainsburys own blue dye ones. there are skinny lines on both. . but after googling it because I was suspicious it turns out these crappy tests are renound for them.
my sister bought me a clear blue plus one . negative.

dh been worrying and bought me first response. I wasnt going to bother but I think he was worried and low and behold a faint line,?

more confused as the two I think were crap. then negative this morning. . I was thinking the first response might be an evap as I left it as just done it too please the dh.

still non of wiser!

Lady I have never had a false positive on First Response. I have squinted the hell out of those bloody things and the only time a line appeared was when I was pregnant.

When is/was your period due?

ladythatlunches Mon 03-Mar-14 17:56:15

well last month I was 26 days usually always 28
. so if 26 days then tom.. if 28 Friday.

I don't have clue how to put pics up in here for advice on what everyone thinks. . anyone got any idea? x

sebsmummy1 Mon 03-Mar-14 18:00:18

I would say if FR has given you a faint positive then there is a good chance you are pregnant.

ladythatlunches Mon 03-Mar-14 18:02:37

im wondering if a evap line as it was about 15ish minutes maybe more. But you can really see it.

ohthegoats Mon 03-Mar-14 18:05:46

Some friends of mine sued the clinic that had performed his vasectomy. He'd had the all clear, but something odd happened with tubes (I have no idea what), and she ended up pregnant again. They have a disabled oldest child, and knew that they couldn't cope with more/it wouldn't be fair.

ladythatlunches Mon 03-Mar-14 18:08:29

my dh said last night if I am he will sue. I said not to get ahead of our selves!

TortillasAndChocolate Mon 03-Mar-14 18:09:23

Frustrating not knowing. Are you going to test again tomorrow?

Showy Mon 03-Mar-14 18:09:42

ladythatlunches, click on 'my mumsnet' (top right of the page) and upload a picture.

ohthegoats, did they successfully sue the clinic? They're very very clear that nothing apart from abstinence is 100%. DH had a vasectomy in January and I know that there is still a minute chance we could have another baby. That's not the clinic's fault, that's biology.
