Pregnancy After Hysterectomy?!

Hi! Ive been lurking for awhile so I thought I would post something. I am 34 yrs old and have 3 kids. I had a hysterectomy when I was 25, almost 9 years ago. (the doc took my uterus, cervix and left ovary out) well, for the last 4-5 wks I have been feeling fetal movement! Not only that, but I have had nausea with certain smells and when I eat and my areola's have become darker. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests and they all came out negative. (i have a history of taking 5-6 ob tests and all of them came out negative yet I was ob with my 3 kids) I have done alot of research and have found that there are some cases of women (on the net) who have become pregnant after a hysterectomy. I was amazed! What do you all think? Could I be pregnant? What else would cause the fetal movement or my sx? Thanks!

Hey
Jeannine~ im just glad we have one another to talk to we know wat we are feelin no one else, just remember it could be alot of things causing our symptoms. The new england journal of medicine has proof of 3 women who carried abdominal babies and the women and babies survived . Totally freaky huh? With this world and the way things are going and happening anything is possible, so no one can say it is impossible for it has happened. Just keep an open mind and know there are many things that we could be having. Ill keep ya posted hun!!!God bless

hi! :) you're right!! I have read numerous searches of women who had babies after a hysterectomy..Mind you, a few of them were already pregnant when they had their surgery. It is very rare, though!

Its been almost 2 months since I began to feel the "fetal" movements and they are getting stronger! My fiance, mike, is telling me that my abdomine is getting larger, but the rest of me is remaining "normal"..Go figure. I dont know what to think! Good luck to you, and keep me posted!
