After spending alot of time lurking on other mini pill posts, I've decided to just ask around...has anyone had weird pregnancy-like symptoms on the mini pill?
I have been on it (Camila/norethindrone) since about 2 months PP. No PPAF yet (@ 10 months PP - whoo hoo! ) but feeling...well...preggo! Started with weird cramping, now also super nauseous, dizzy, tired, moody, have weird food cravings, gassy, peeing constantly...the works. Have I been a great pill taker? Of course not - I mean, I missed one (or two?) pills at the beginning of this pack (which is typical for me) and took the rest probably within 1-2 hrs. of the same time every night.
Was not sure when to test, since PPAF hasn't arrived (and mini pills are all active pills, so no help there...) but took two FMU tests now, a few days apart (during last week of pack) and both were negative. This means no "mini pill baby" for me, right???
So...has anyone else had these symptoms on the mini pill and not been pg? Could it be related to AF returning in the next few weeks? Or the hormones in the pills themselves (why would it show up now?)?
Only other thing I can think of is DS is still nursing day/night (only takes a couple bites of solids here and there) and I've gotten back to my pre-pg weight - but I was eating lots (before nausea hit) and on prenatal vitamins/supplements, so it shouldn't be some kind of nutritional thing, right?
Help me, wise mamas!
