I AM pregnant after having my tubes tied!

It is entirely possible to get pregnant when you've had your tubes tied! I should know....I had my tubes tied in October of 2004, and am 11 weeks pregnant. 1 in 200 women get pregnant after having their tubes tied, but 70% of those pregnancies are ectopic. The chances are so slim, yet here I am... I had my tubes tied after my second divorce. I have two children, one from each marriage and decided that I was done. Tired of being in relationships because of my children I wanted some reassurrance that, that would never happen again. I love children don't get me wrong, but I have a boy age 9, and a girl age 16 and was satisfied with what I had.

When my cycle was late and had other familiar symptoms, I thought there was no way! I had that problem fixed! After 4 home pregnancy tests in 2 1/2 days, confirmation from my doctor and an ultrasound to see if it was ectopic or not...I am definately pregnant. Due in January, and for the first time pregnant without the support of a spouse or boyfriend and 2000 miles away from my friends and family. My boyfriend and I broke up before I found out I was pregnant and he can't quite figure things out so we're doing this on our own.

So if anyone out there has some words of advice or encouragement I would welcome it!
Respond to this topic here on forum.oes.org  
I have some words of support... Child Support! :lol:

2,000 miles away is a long way... where are and where are they?
I have a firm belief that things al;ways work out for the best, keep your chin up!

Good luck.
The forces of nature thought you needed one more!

Congrats!!! are in order :banana:

"once in awhile you'll get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right"

be happy no matter what, your children will always love you and you them
My best friend got divorced. She and her husband tried for 7 yrs to get pregnant. She got robbed by the people that she was letting live in her house. She called him for support and well...they ended up in bed.
And she ended up Pregnant 8O
She is raising her son by herself and is very happy.
Like Ron said CHILD SUPPORT!!!
As a former single Mom I know it is possible to raise a child without the father around.
Is it possible to move back to where your family is? After my divorce I moved from NJ to California to be close to my family. That helped a lot.

There is also the other option of not having the baby :?

Good Luck!!

PS... Just thinking this was a weird reason to join an Old English Sheepdog forum.... Puzzled :? Welcome anyhow :)
Do you have a dog???
What a shock it must have been t find out you were expecting. I am sorry. I agree with Ron, Child support is in order. Another thought.....have you considered adoption? There are many wonderful couples who are looking for a child. I know it would be a very diffiicult decision but one worth considering.

Good Luck.

I hope you DON'T consider NOT having the baby as an option! You may not have wanted to get pregnant, but you knew there was a chance. There are consequences for our actions. But, yours is a bundle of love.

Words of encouragement would include thinking of the love and happiness
you've shared with your other two children and enjoy sharing it with another.

My advice would be to get support from your boyfriend, but most importantly: Use your experience(s) to teach your daughter NOT to make the same mistakes. That you can't always trust science and medicine as preventative maintanance. That abstanace is the only sure form of birth control. Good luck.
Hi Klast,

I can imagine what turmoil you must be going through and just wanted to offer my support. As a single mom of two I can relate to the fearing of the unknown and the best advice I remember recieving was the question asked, "What's the worst thing that can happen?" Most often if we ask ourselves that question and dig deep for the most truthful answer we suprise ourselves that we often rise to the challenge and know the right thing to do or how we can handle it.

I'll be thinking of you.

It didn't sound like she was asking for that kind of advice - from her post it sounds like she wants to have the baby and wondered if anyone else had an experience. 8O Generally women who find themselves pregnant and want to have an abortion talk to their families if they want advice - not people on message boards.

Since I'm not a mom I can't give you too much advice other than making sure the dad pays child support even if he doesn't want to hang around with the kids.

There are lots of great programs for mom's now that help with food and places to stay. I have a friend I work with and she is working a part-time job, going to school, has a place to live, food and has someone helping her with daycare for her two sons. It's a lot of work for her and the acomodations aren't always the best but she is doing it and they are thriving.
It must be very overwhelming what you are going through. You sound like a very strong person and will handle everything that you need to. The best advice I can offer you is to take things one minute at a time. And also "this too shall pass" if you get overwhelmed.

I agree that everything happens for a reason. That baby will probably bring you the most happiness you have ever experienced! Just be open to what good things want to come your way!

You're correct. "She" didn't mention having an abortion, but it was suggested as a possible option in another post. I am a firm believer that abortion is wrong. Therefore, I expressed the opinion that I "hope" she doesn't consider that as an option.

Sorry if that offended anyone, especially her, but........................jmop
Hi, I totally know what you are going through...well some of it anyways. this happened to me too, Dec 2004, my son just turned 4, and my daughter was 5.

But for me it was thrilling to find myself pregnant, I was so excited for a baby, after all the tests it was confirmed it was in the uterus. then we miscarried.

I am currently going in to have the tubes properly reversed so we can have another child, but now my kids will be 6 yrs and 7 yrs when we have another.

Sorry to hear to that you are not in a committed relationship, and you are so far away from your family. Is it possible for you to move back to be closer to some support. If you are uncertain of keeping the baby their is private adoption, where you can decide which parents will adopt. Is their a family member that might want to raise the baby, and you can be "aunty"...always knowing where the baby is.

Are the two children that you have with you at the moment? They can be a big help, and an extra pair of hands.

Are you close to anyone in your new area, can they help you with some emotional support...or take baby for a couple hours while you run your errands. Ask around about daycare, and if it like my area the waiting list is long, so that is another option while you continue to work.

You should have child care support from the father too, that will help.

Things will work out, you will find the inner strength to get through it. The baby is the innocent one in all this, and it is unfortunate to have a failed tubal. I was so happy to be pregnant, but after the miscarriage I was furious with the fact that my tubal failed and being put through the emotional rollercoaster of it all. I am still not over it, and that is why we are proceeding with trying for another.

Good luck, you have lots of time to get your ducks in a row, to prepare for the delivery...and make the necessary decisons.

I know you probably didn't mean it that way - but all I was trying to point out is that she didn't say that she wanted to have an abortion - someone else threw it out there. It's ok if you have an opinion about it - but I think you should have addressed the person who talked about abortion rather than the poster who was asking for advice about having a baby. By addressing the poster it made it sound like an accusation rather than advice.

My response was advice about having a baby. Why would I address the one that mentioned not having the baby as an option? They're not the one that asked for advice. They gave their opinion, the same as I did.

I was not accussing this poster of anything, but since you used that term, someone in her position would more than likely have that thought cross their mind. God forgive me, I know I probably would. Its an easy out. But, "I" would NOT go through with it. My hope is that she and others wouldn't either.

I hope this lady, and thousands of others that find themselves with (unwanted/or/untimely or/unexpected/or whatever term) pregnancies are able to find the best solutions and support for their individual circumstances. That through whatever ups and downs life throws at them, they will cherish the lifes of the children God has given them to love and watch over. jmop
Interesting that this original poster has not "reappearred". I wonder if this post was a mistake.

My suggestion (and of course just a suggestion) is that you take the political/moral/ethical discussion over to "Food for Thought" section and let this post rest. Unless of course the original poster is in fact out there.
How are you doing? My name is Stephanie I got married nine monts ago. My first baby premature(1pound and 15 oz). She stayed in the hosptal for 4 months. I was by myself let me take that back GOD was with me.

Its so hard for me to carry babies,I lost five before i had her. So i got my tubes tied. I missed my period for this month, have having these crazy feeling and I just got sick. My husand doesnt have any kids and he wants to have one at least but he knows how my body is.

I didn't tell him yet because he is in Iraq and I know he is stressed about that. So can you let me now on some of the things that you been through?

Thank you so much.

I signed up; you can send me an email or a PM through my profile page: http://forum.oes.org/profile.php?mode=v ... ile&u=1816 Thanks. :(
Klast, I have just found out im pregnant and I also have my tubes tied, I had them done 8 years ago. I am totally terrified. I had made the decision like you that enough is enough no more kids I already have 4. So I can understand where you are coming from. :?
I would be concerned about ectopic (out of place) pregnancy. Be sure to see your doctor!
I am also a firm believer in pro-life. Gid gifts us with these little miracles and its our duties to make sure they are loved and taken care of. I know it will be hard, but you have so much support behind you. Look for some support services in your community, you will find help. God will show you a way, he always does. Keep your faith alive, I hope both you and your baby best of luck. I am also a mom, I got pregnant at 21. It was never planned, and we were in a financial hole. No money at all! Now my husband is in real estate and does taxi, and we are surviving. I might be preggo with number 2, I have a deep intuition, I cant shake off. Lots of baby dust. Bye!
This is honestly my favorite thread on this board.

:sidestep:
Glad you like it, I keep trying to unsubscribe but I think Ron is playing a sick joke on me and won't let me :roll:
I stumbled across this and had to ask, if one wants to become pregnant, after having there tubes tied and burned 13 years ago, and 1 yr away from 40, is this a wise choice? I have a longing to have a third child and am wondering what the risks may be or if it is even possible? I have 2 children, 18 and 13 and do not get to see them much since I now live in upstate NY and they are in PA with there fathers. Can anyone offer advice?
Regarding age: Many women that age having babies nowadays, but your risks significantly go up for problems in your pregnancy and things such as down syndrome.

My SIL is due a little more than a month before me, and is 38. The healthiest super woman I know. Runs marathons and is built like a champion. She is running into all kinds of complications that her many specialists feel it's from her age.

This morning I got an email saying she had velamentous cord insertion. What this means according to her is that instead of the cord attaching to the center of the placenta, it attaches at the margin of the placenta. The main risk with this is that it could lead to vasa previa. She has a high risk of going into labor soon even though she is not ready. If she does, the baby doesn't have a good chance. She's on steroids now to help the baby's lungs develop faster.

My advice would be: Don't do it.
SO I AM ONLY 27, I HAVE ONE SON WHO IS FIVE. AND THE DR'S TIED MY TUBS WHEN I WAS UNDER THE TABLE. CAN I HAVE A BABY STILL. ANY WAY OF FROM.
My suggestion would be, discuss this with your DOCTOR, not a bunch of strangers on a dog forum.
This has got to be the juiciest post ever!!!! I had my "tubes tied" after my last child almost 17 yrs ago. If I get pregnant I'm gonna be a little ticked! To say the very least!!! Oh God NO!!!!! I wonder what happened with the origanl poster of this topic. By now the baby is born. Hmmm??? Very interesting to have been posted here. I can't hardly stand not knowing. I hope things are good for her.

Is is possible that you can find another way to fill that void? Like Fostering, adopting a slightly older child, big bro big sis program, church nursery's, voulentering at an orphange?

Just a thought.
Wow. So this thread is more research for my talking husband into getting a vasectomy some day! (It probably doesn't help that I affectionately refer to it as being "neutered"...lol).

Maybe the new pregnancy will become a wonderful blessing in disguise. Good luck with everything!

i know that if it were not meant, it would not happen, coming from a woman that had my last child by myself, along with 2 other small children i was raising with no child support, may i mention, have faith that everything is a perfect plan of God, u can do it! well i had my tubes tied in 2005 after my 3rd child and have never had a late period, well now im about 5 days late ADVICE? N-E-1
See a doctor! 8O
OK now you guys have scared me. lol I just had my fourth baby a little over 2 months ago. We both nearly died during the delivery and I had my tubes tied...but for the past three weeks I feel like I have morning sickness. I feel constantly queasy and strong smells make me throw up. I have an apt. for a check up with my OBGYN in two weeks. Could I really be pregnant??? Guess I will suck it up and buy a test ASAP. We would have loved to have 6 kids but my last delivery was so scary. We decided it would be best not to risk it again.
:roll:

My mother delivered me at 40 and my little sister at 42 (after nearly 16 years of trying!) She did a great job with us and is still very active with her grandkids!
I'm finding myself in your situation. After the birth of my son 4 years ago I had my tubes tied. I already have two children and I decided I was finished also. I have diabetes and both of my pregnancies were high risk. My doctor even suggested the operation. Now after a divorce and a new relationship where he has custody of his 2 children I find that I'm pregnant. I don't know if the pregnancy is in the tubes or not as of yet. All I know is the test is positive and I'm also nervous and scared. Scared because of my age 38, diabetes, and all four of the kids! Abortion isn't the answer and never would be because this is me although I agree with having the choice. However I am having so many different feelings here. I guess the main one is this: If God wants me to have a baby then he will provide the way even when your tubes are tied. Even with this I'm still scared. Take care and good luck.
I've come to realize that we truly have no control over what happens in life. We can plan all we want, but it is truly GOD's decision in the end. I have four children and about to have another. My intentions were to get my tubes tied. And you're a good example as to why I decide not to. I believed that if it is for me to get pregnant regardless of what type of birth control I may have been on it doesn't matter, it will happen if it is GOD's WILL!!! So here I am months after my forth child I'm pregnant again, and going through a divorce. Have faith that things happen for a reason.
what's the board's stance on heavily religious posts? All this "God's Will" stuff begins to sound a bit "pro-life" to me, and i wonder where the board stands on religion and politics....

can't we just delete the thread so it doesn't keep coming up?
this original post is from 2006........... and from a GUEST?????
again I ask; can't this just be deleted?
I think people are entitled to their religious stance, everyone has an opinion and that's a GOOD thing. Personally I like to hear people's take on life, religion or otherwise, everyone is different and that's what makes the world go round. It's not up to us to judge right or wrong. For example, if someone wants to praise the lord or whoever, that's fine by me BUT don't expect me to, and there is a line not to be crossed, like over-posting or purposely offending others.
Darth if you are offended by something on the board, you are right to speak up, the moderators will make the correct decision for the board.

This board has a "cup of tea" rule which goes something like "if you wouldn't say something to someone over a cup of tea (in polite conversation in person) like with a friend or neighbour- then don't say it here" Moderators would be able to clarify that somewhat.

I agree this thread could be locked, as it keeps coming back like a bad smell. Hopefully we helped someone along the way though :)

Uh, no, it's simple science. No birth control=a really good chance at getting pregnant. You put yourself in a high risk situation and now you're pregnant with someone's child who you won't even be married to soon. That's kind of like saying it's God's will for you to get burned if you put your hand on a hot store burner. Absolutely ridiculous.
I thought this topic was locked :?:
8O Again?????
i wish my gurl could get pregnant, she recently hadnt had her period for almost 4 months but just last night she told me she got her pd. i was so disappointed and sad, she already has two kids and with her tubes tied and burnt. i dont have any kids, but want them so bad. sometimes this makes me cry. being young with no kids, shes five years older than me, im 25. one is 11 and the other is 4, the 4 year old has a lot of love for me but at the same time he acts kind of bad and so does the other.. my gurl is also on pills, because she has back problems, its just all these things like her back problem, her being 30 and having two kids already that she constantly yells at, doesnt really give me any kind of hopes of her ever trying to have one of my child's and it just hurts to think this way, it really does.. bad. somebody please help me .
This is pretty much a dog forum, but my advice to you would be to talk with your lady friend about your goals and desires. You will need to work everything out together, there's no easier way to do it, I'm afraid.
I really enjoy this thread now. It's the people who choose to post in this thread that give me a chuckle.
Lol. Me too!

This guy needs to get a new girlfriend. The last thing he should be doing is having kids with this woman. There's really not that much more room in a trailer for more kids than what they have anyway.

Yeah, but isn't that sort of what they've done already? Wouldn't you say tube tying is the human equivalent of being spayed?

Absolutely not. A Spay is a Hysterectomy; its the irreversible removal of the reproductive organs. Tube tie is, just that; the fallopian tubes are tied off, but the reproductive organs all remain intact. As we can see by this oh so silly thread, it not 100% protective the way having one's reproductive organs removed would be. Not even a little bit like 100%.
well all i have to say is that i wish i was the one havein the baby i have two kids and my boyfriend dont have none and he wants one but i cant give it cause my tubes is tired and i dont have the money to make it happene so can anyone tell me wat should i do
I suggest you love your children, and if your both really want another child, you should look into adoption.

If you can't afford adoption or having your tubal ligation reversed, perhaps you should concentrate on focusing your financial resources on your current children and their future, and for your own retirement!

Good luck.

Nearly 0.
Obviously no protections was used, so I would be more concerned about contracting an STD over the integrity of the tubaligation.

I had to jump in, I just couldn't stand it. :?

Guest,
You need to see your doctor. A possible issue is an ectopic (out of place) pregnancy which could be life threatening.

Me and my wife went through the same thing. She had her tubes tied and three years later we had twins. In the old days they used metal clamps and one had severed the tube. We were lucky to have only two or so we were told. We had seven children, 5 boys and two girls and now 9 grandchildren.
Good luck.

Okay, I been sitting on this response for years but since this topic will out live us all, I feel I should give Anonymous the following advice:
PLEASE give your tired tubes plenty of time to rest. Years if needed.
:P Yes, It recently happened to me.. I had my tubes burned(is what they do now) tied is the old way.. Any how i was 2mths late, but thinking the same thing Im stressed its no way possible i can be pregnant.. So i took a test friday and it was postv. So i went to the ER and pretty much nurses and doctors were like WHAT.. So another test was done and yes I was pregnant. Ultra sound show us the baby was in its sack and heart rate perfect and babys hand waving at us.. Yes Its a miracle.. Ultra sound tech said that shes seeen this plenty of times, even when both parents are fixed.. So becare and take care of your self.. Im due August 26 2010.. We are so excited.. Our third baby..
Oh yeah, a positive pregnancy test is a reason to tie up a spot in an ER! We don't need to fix the health care system, we need to fix more of these idiots!!!!
I'm not sure, but isn't a potential ectopic pregnancy a life threatening situation?

yes an ectopic pregnancy is a life threatening and requires emergency surgery.
Yes, ectopic pregnancy is. It is accompanied by abdominal or pelvic pain, not just a little pink line on a stick!
But is extremely common in a post tubal ligation pregnancy and the pain is caused by the rupture. It is much easier to treat surgically prior to a tubal rupture, so the hospital would want to do an ultrasound to confirm where the pregnancy is.
I just did a google search about tubal ligation and this forum popped up. But as I was reading on, noticed that it was apparently in a dog forum... the things you all said, I almost pissed myself. "did we notice the pictures of the cute little sheep dogs...." I cant stop laughing. Thanks, I needed a good laugh. Hope you all get your forum back from the prego's!

I as well have my tubes tied, 2003. I got pregnant in 2007...my pregnancy only lasted 5 weeks...Reason be, I went to the doctor and it was confirm that I was...but no ultra sound was done to see if the baby was in the womb...I was hurt at the fact that after he checked me, I experienced labor pains later in the day...I started bleeding and was in pain...Remind you that, I talked to this same doctor weeks prior to this happening...Now, I am late again and this time I am hoping that this is it....I will not be going to the same doctor...
So I encourage you to go on and have your baby...He or she may just change your life in many ways...you do have help with the older two..How do they feel about the new baby? :D

I can't believe I have something relevant to add to this thread, which I did not expect to encounter on this forum... 8O

My mother-in-law had her tubes tied after her 4th child (my wife Kim). She's a good Catholic babushka and she asked the priest for advice, her family was very poor and it was a struggle with 4 kids. Kim remembers the priest visiting them at home and screaming at her mother that she'd be damned and go to hell. Against the will of the Church she went ahead and had her tubes tied. Babies 5 and 6 came a couple of years after... 8O

So.... yeah I love sheepdogs! :oops:
:wag:
You know, this thread has really made me think that maybe it's time for me to try to have another baby.

Yes, I am 55 and mid-menopause but according to my doctor, still ovulating. I did have my tubes tied 24 years ago, and my husband did have a radical prostatectomy 2 years ago, but what the heck! The kids aren't ready to give us grandchildren; I think having another sheepdog would just be too much work at this point in my life--I'm not sure I have that kind of energy anymore! So maybe I should just have another baby. I don't think it's very easy to adopt at our age, and I haven't lost the pregnancy weight from my last pregnancy 24 years ago, so it's not like I would be hurting my figure. I think we'll just have to try to have another ourselves. That or go to grad school.

What do you all think?
I would suggest learning to knit while paragliding far more rewarding. No nappy/diaper changes. As for babies yeah just a breeze leave em in the garden to potty train! You go girl I love your sense of adventure

:D :D :D :D :D
I personally am 53 and think you are out of your mind for even thinking about more babies :cow: :cow: :cow: :cow: If you are aching for babies, foster a child..or foster a sheepie - same thing sort of! :pupeyes: :pupeyes:
Ashley: I was just kidding. Heaven knows I don't have the energy or well, the energy for a new baby or toddler, full time.

Now, my personal fantasy is this:

We (early) retire to or at least own a small hobby farm or nice home on some waterfront that isn't a river or creek. I can garden and paint and write and watch my grandchildren play in the yard and they will help me in the garden and with the cookie making, etc. We have a few chickens, maybe a couple of goats or sheep and of course: sheep dogs. We take a month long trip to someplace wonderful like Italy or France or Greece (no riots) or Toronto or Banff or the pacific northwest every year or two. I never get any older or at least, never feel or look any older. The kids are all happily married, with good jobs and a couple of kids apiece. At least two of them live close enough to stop by with the kids every week or so. The grandchildren spend a few weekends a year, minimum at our house. Of course the kids are happy to help with the heavier chores. All my daughters in law are wonderful and think I'm terrific. My son in law does, too. I think in this fantasy I am also a lot skinnier but hey, it's my fantasy.

Reality is that I am seriously hoping I don't have to keep doing my present job until I am 67 and that I can retire early enough to actually enjoy some bit of retirement and not go straight from working to worn out. 4 days a week, I leave before 7 a.m. and hope to return home before 8 p.m. It works out pretty well as long as there isn't much snow or ice. We live in Minnesota, so you can imagine. None of the kids are married although one is in an unfortunately serious relationship. It isn't likely that any of them will live very near by. Currently two live >100 miles away and I am expecting by this time next year the other two will as well. I am still helping pay for college for one of them and am really hoping that the other one who has not graduated from college will take me up on our offer to pay her tuition as well and return to school. Our house is on a tiny, tiny, tiny in-town lot. The house, yard, drive and garage all need massive infusions of cash.

I have seriously considered fostering but hubby feels he/we are done with that part of our lives. Truthfully, I didn't take on this job until my kids were at an age to be pretty independent. I think a foster child would need and deserve more days in the hour than I have. We really are looking forward to someday having grandchildren, though. Getting all the good parts and sending them home with their parents when we get tired or they get cranky.

On the other hand, I have a pretty good job and my husband does, too. As far as anyone is able to say these days, our jobs are pretty secure. Our health is pretty decent (knock wood---hubby is cancer free now for 2 years). Kids are all healthy and are good people, although they haven't quite figured themselves out all the way. Many, many blessings. I'm actually really awful to complain.

I am serious about the grad school thing, though. Not sure how I am going to work it out, but I am going to work it out.
I had my tubes tied 5 years ago and I am 11 weeks pregnant and so excited

I started reading this thread thinking one of our members was pregnant and was going to offer congraulations or something depending how the thread was going. My fingers were already to type - till I started reading and had to finish the thread as its an interesting one and was slightly confused as to how the orginal poster came across the OES Forum <G> :clappurple:

By the way has anyone heard about the original poster?

I think the morale of the story is not to have our tubes tied or if we do threaten the doctors if its not done correctly. I guess the best prevention is not doing the act.

I think I will stick with an OES puppy :wag: - as am too much of a child myself to consider having one.

:cow: What a spooky thread......don't know what to say or write........Voff!
:bulb: Maybe I should have my tubes tied too?
Then I could write something reasonably about this subject in this mysterious topic. :lmt:

You and me both Lori, I considered mentioning this thread in a response to the bangs to short thread but decided to keep my head down, and also thought that advice re hair cuts makes more sense on this forum than advice re human medical issues.
I was so glad to hear your story I'm going through the same thing right now but I just had my tubes tied march 2011. I am 6 weeks pregnant. I'm also going through a lawsuit to sue the doctor. I don't believe they tied them at all for what another doctor told me. I so confused I don't know what to do. I haven't told any of my family yet. I don't know how.
Hmmmm..... You must be the Easter Bunny, right? :lmt:

Nobody else but a bunny would be back at it that fast after surgery, would they? :headbang:

Congratulations!

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaT?
:D Hi Shellie!! How are ya?
This darn thread again.... :lmt:
It's not about trying to get pregnant anyhow. It's about an oopsie after having your tubes tied. Stupid!
Hi E! long time, eh? I've been ok actually.

This topic--I know, but how entertaining has this been?! I laugh every single
time I read through it, but sometimes I just wonder about some of these posts.
Then I tell myself some of them are just trolls (and then I feel better.)
At some point, though, you have to ask yourself: how does this stuff happen? 8O
Sometimes it seems more like a pattern than a weird accident.


Shellie
I laugh every time I see this post has been resurrected. And the latest posts are always (except for Shellie!) made by "guests" who apparently don't realize this is a board for sheepdogs and their slaves! I agree with Shellie that most postings are by trolls....

Its kind of like a bad soapie, embarrassingly bad but you can't help getting sucked in and seeing what's happening.

It usually makes me grin. :D

This is REALLY REALLY FUNNY!! I have had my tubes tied.(& burned), since having my daughter back in December 2011...... So she'll be 3 this year. I keep having these scary reoccurring dreams that I am pregnant! Anyways, so the whole gist of the story is: after dreaming about it yet again last night, I decided to Google it to get some answers!! And BOOM - this thread pops up. About sheep dogs, YET someone posted about having their tubes tied and getting pregnant! It cracked me up as I kept reading and kept reading. I think it's funny how it started in 2006 and and boom here I had to post in it yet again (2014) just because I cannot stop laughing. Sorry you guys! I know, it's like a bad smell. I had really good intentions when I first started Googling this subject and now after reading this whole thing I'm terrified of getting pregnant at some point again when the thought of having yet another c-section is NOT IN MY PLANS lol. Thanks though, it actually has been very informative....... :bow: :ghug:
Personally I think it's great that at last someone who happened upon this thread and has actually had their tubes tied has made such a reasonable response to it. So many people seem to get their hackles up and some of the comments seem to go a wee bit over the line. Just look at the BIG picture and you should (as you have) realize IT'S A DOG FORUM!!! Hey, best of luck in your search for a more meaningful answer.

>>>>in reply, Child support IS NOT the best way to go. Forget it! I am a single parent of two children, and do just fine without child support-all it does is cause more problems. My advise to the woman who is now pregnant after having her tubes tied and breaking up with her boyfriend, is your other two kids are old enough to help you out with new born baby, and the only way you are going to make it through is being the independent woman that you are because you do not need help from a person who does not want to be part of your life, and it is no use to hit up a man for child support, especially if you have not told him that you were pregnant with his child. I know most women are more like "the baby is his, and if he don't want to help than get him for child support". When I hear people say that it just makes me mad because it just shows that woman is a sad little girl looking for a hand out in taking care of her child. Every woman knows you cannot force a man to have a child when he is not ready, and you cannot force him to take of a child he was not ready to have. A real woman would not need any help from a man who does not want to step up to the plate, they simply step up there independence, and live a better life than they would have imagined without anybody's help.
