Hi all, i discovered 6 weeks ago that despite being on the coil i was pregnant !!! I am Mum to 3 gorgeous boys aged 10,8 and 6 yrs but i honestly struggled with this news for a few weeks. I think the shock plus the uncertainty due to cramping, some early bleeding and chance of miscarrage due to removal of the coil and the high chance of ectopic pregnancy made it really difficult to take in the news.
Luckily after a scan at 7 weeks we could see that all was well and could even see the the heartbeat!
Now at 10 weeks all is well and i am looking forward to my 12 week scan and seeing Flump (so called by the boys lol) is well. I think that after everything that Flump has been through to be here against all the odds it must be meant to be !!!!!
I just wanted to share my story, i would love to hear any comments especially if anyone has been through similar experiences x

Yeah def worth thinking about, i was on the implant for 6 years but due to suffering terrible anxiety attacks that have been linked with the hormones in the implant i made the decision to move to the non hormonal coil. I had had it in for almost a year and was about 3 weeks away from my yearly check when i found out ! I had been checking the coil as normal every month after my period and the strings were still in the same place but i had to go for a scan at 5 weeks and they discovered that the coil was sitting very low in the cervix and they believed that this was what caused me to catch on ! Saying that there is only 1/100 chance of pregnancy on the coil and i did actually catch on with 3 of my boys on the pill so i don't know why i am suprised lol
Hopefully that will be it for the drama now as don't think i can cope with much more lol xxx
