I know the depo shot's side effects mimics many pregnancy symptoms. I have had several friends take it and they all exhibited symptoms you are talking about. I would try not to worry until you speak to your doctor. Hopefully everything is right as rain. I also wanted to add that I had what I thought was pregnancy symptoms several times before I actually conceived and my obgyn told me that progesterone plays tricks and makes us feel pregnant. I'll be thinking of and praying for you.

I guess I belong back in this area. Please any body. I just had my beautiful baby girl Aug 17th i had her a day shy of 36 weeks PE and HELLP free.... Amazing after my first pregnancy. Ok anyways here I go. Sorry for thr TMI in this post.

After i was 3 weeks post partum, I received to Depo shot for Birth Control because it is blood pressure safe. I dont normally believe in Birth Control for me. But my MFM told me that I CANT get pregnant with in a year or again my body will fail me and baby or i or both will not make it. So I went on birth control. After my first shot. I was told I may spot a little bit so I thought no big deal I can handle that, but I started actully bleeding like a period, So I went to see my OB and he said i needed another shot ( something to do with my hormone level ) ugh, So I got another shot I am still bleeding and my BP is at 155/90-100 my heart rate is 98 as well and Im drooling at night my round legiments in my belly pull when i strech I pee a ton and im always hungry I feel like compete crap at night. Its exactly the same as both of my last pregnancies. i havent been able to tell with a urine test because I never show up on them for some reason. Im so scared, I have an app with my dr. tomorrow and i just cant handle this because I have been having the shot and also because I was told not to get pregnant, I can not keep this pregnancy if in fact thats what this is, my husband and I do not like abortions at all but I may not have a chioce. I dont understand how this happened. I cant talk to anybody about it, I have told my husband but hes so scared he just shut right down. I dont know what to do or think, we are so happy with the way things are right now with our beautiful baby girl a fter losing our son we finally feel like things are looking up. We dont want to try for another babe for a year. Im really scared.. any advice support experiance would be appretiated..
