I am new to this group, but not new to pregnancy or birth LoL. I am a mother of 2 step-mother of two more, both my births were natural and the second of the two was a home birth (Soul Changing!) I am slowly studying to become a Doula and am one of those "militant natural birth/anti-medical establishment" activists (big mouths *giggles*).
So what I was wondering, is if any of you Ladies has ever gotten preggers while having a paragard copper iud in place? I have had mine for almost a year now and my partner and I had been very careful in the past to use the "rhythm method" on top of having the iud. Well there were a couple occasions in the last couple months where that whole "rhythm method" went kerflop. I am having almost constant heart burn now, really light periods ( I have been known to have them while pregnant ) and continual light spotting. Unless I have an ulcer from anxiety, I think we may have "Lucky no. 7" on the way. I do not want to take a test until the weekend because I fear a false negative, it has happened to me before.
So any input on this would be extremely helpful ! Thanks!
