The Results Are In

So, I think I got about three hours of sleep.  I was just too anxious to see what the results of the pregnancy test were going to be.  (See why here) Plus, I made myself eat dinner and again I felt really uncomfortable.  At one point, I almost did vomit, but something was blocking the food from coming back up.  I ended up just pretty much gagging over the toilet for ten minutes.  And that increased saliva and salty taste you get when you're about to throw up?  I had that too.

I was already up when the Mr got in from work. He stopped by the store and picked up a couple of pregnancy tests.  The first words out of his mouth when I saw that I was already up were "Let's do this." LOL. Men, I tell yall. 

Into the bathroom I went with one of the tests.  At first, I wasn't going to look at until the full two minutes were up.  However, I ended up just standing there staring at it waiting for the results to come in.  I felt surprising calm waiting for the results to pop up.  And then the results came.....


Yep, the results were negative.  We're not pregnant.  And I can't say that I'm feeling relieved.  If anything, I feel the opposite.  I have morning sickness symptoms with no pregnancy.  That can't be a good thing.  

I didn't learn myself and took Google again after the kids got up to do more digging on this Mirena.  At this point, I've ruled food poison and pregnancy.  So, it has to either be the birth control or maybe a stomach virus.  Only I've had stomach viruses and diarrhea usually accompanies those and I don't/haven't had that.

What I did find out though is that Mirena can cause morning sickness and other pregnancy symptoms in its users.  Now, you won't find this information their site specifically.  The best they put was the if you suspect you're pregnant you'll probably have to your device removed and your pregnancy will most likely end in miscarriage.  Kind of scary.  But I did find this information on other medical sites and even a few legal sites since a lot of women seem to be suing Mirena due a number of complications and unlisted side effects.

Where do I go from here?  Well, I'm waiting to hear if I can get an earlier appointment in with my OBGYN.  She works at two practices and has tons of patients. Needless to say the wait list for an appointment is long, but hopefully I can something sooner rather than later.  In the meanwhile, I just need monitor myself and if I have any severe cramping and/or bleeding, go to the emergency room. 

It sucks being sick and not having knowing what's going on with your own body.  I'm just glad the Mr has been supportive, attentive and concerned.  He went in for a half shift and called and texted me to see how I was feeling.  He even got me some ginger ale to help with the nausea.  Love that man!  Anyways, hopefully this is nothing serious.  Maybe, it is a stomach virus....

Do you have Mirena or an IUD?  Have you ever had any of pregnancy like side effects?

  1. I hope all will be okay. I can't do any birth control I have tried 8 different kinds and all of them caused me some type of reaction so the dr said it was best I took nothing. I do not want anymore kids but if I do get pregnant again I will be tying up the tubes. Keep us posted.

    1. Well, looks like I'll be needing to pursue other birth control options. I'm not down with this morning sickness and I'm not even pregnant. It's passed now, but it could always come back. So, my doctor and I are trying to review other options.

  2. Wow this is crazy! I am going through the same thing. Only thing is Im not on birth control and still no cycle (but I have always had an irregular cycle). But the tests (yes I have taken multiples) are all negative. Im going to call the doctor tomorrow to get in there to see whats going on. I have heard of a couple of women getting pregnant and having complications with the mirena. My sister has it and loves it but one of her best friends had a horrible time with it, then I heard of someone else getting pregnant. I just don't know what to say about birth control because it has you literally feeling crazy and sick all at the same time...but you cant go without it if you aren't trying to have children.

    1. All of these birth controls have too many hidden side effects after you've been on them for a while. I think they might want to rethink the formula for Mirena. Maybe the dosage the IUD gives off is too high and our bodies can't handle it after two years? Idk, but I'm looking into other options until we're ready to start trying for another baby the end of next year.

  3. I almost got the Mirena a long time ago. but now, all you see are ads on TV about if you have it, you can sue them because it's dangerous and being recalled around here. I'm glad I never got it but be very careful. These symptoms you are having could be caused by it doing damage to your body. I can understand how you feel when the test came back negative. I felt that way for a long time after trying and it always said negative. I once too had symptoms I was pregnant and in fact I wasn't. It can be very depressing if you really want it to be.

    1. Very depressing indeed. I'm definitely reviewing other options because there's a chance my morning sickness symptoms could come back. And like you said that could be doing more damage than my OB/GYN can see right now.

    1. I'm a little bummed too. :( I knew it could go either way, but I felt like I was so sure it was going to come back positive that I got my hopes up too much too.

  6. I hope whatever had you feeling this way is figured out very soon.

    Question. . . did you want to be pregnant?

    1. It's the Mirena. I guess thinking that I might, I kind of got my hopes up that I would be. We're planning on having a third baby and while we weren't planning on having one this soon, we were both open to it if it had happened. I'm a little bummed about not being pregnant.
