mum to one goregous boy

hey, i fell pregnant with DS1 & DS2 on the pill, i didnt get a period either time lol
OMG...YES.
I got pregnant on the pill, however i guess you could say that it was my fault...
I had been on the pill for around 3 years [non-stop]. When i went to the chemist to fill the scrip they asked me if i wanted to go for a cheaper brand [as the brand of pill i was on was supposed to help with pimples]...as my face had cleared up i decided to try the cheaper brand.
So the next period i got, i switched over. i didnt think to use protection as the chemist explained to me that there is the same hormones in this pill so i didnt think to even use anything [condoms].
Anyways when i didnt get my period the next month i just put it down to the new pill etc. I then started feeling sick and light headed. I went to the doc and explained my symptoms. I told her about the pill change and she said that she wanted to do a pregnancy test just to rule it out. The poor doc, i actually argued with her, telling her that i'm not pregnant. I ended up doing 3 urine tests [all positive] but i still didnt believe it...i told her that she must have a faulty batch of tests. She did a blood test and called me the next day to tell me that i was in fact pregnant....i nearly died with shock.
The doc did say that it was rare to get pregnant on the pill even if i changed over as both pills had the same hormones etc and i had been on the pill for 3 years...oh well it was just meant to be.
But i now have my little boy, Xavier and couldnt be more happier.
