missing mirena coil with late periods and pregnancy symptoms

Soooo had the mirena coil fitted around a year and a half ago, regular periods since! My periods are now as little as 6 days late, I feel as I am having slight pregnancy symptoms, cramping, increase in discharge, nausea (which I never had with my 1st 2 pregnancy's), sore heads, tired during day then cant sleep at night, tender boobs and just feel pregnant although not sure if my body is playing tricks on me!!! lol I have took 4 hpt all neg over 5 days! With my 1st pregnancy it took 4 tests to finally get a pos result! Anyhow went to the docs today to discuss with her, had a look for my coil and is no where to be seen, surly I would have noticed it coming out lol. Now waiting on her arranging for an ultra sound to see whats going on! In the mean time driving my self mad as I just want to no am I or aren't! Will continue to do tests every couple of days in the meantime!!

Anyone else experienced anything like this or have any info related to this???? Any information from anyone would b fantastic!!!
