I found out 3 weeks ago that I am pregnant. I have had a copper iud in for about 5 1/2 years. I have been spotting since I was about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant. I kept waiting for the spotting to turn into my period so two weeks into spotting after a vivid pregnancy dream I went and bought a pregnancy test. I took the test the next morning, and it was positive. I called my dr immediately and she sent me in for an ultrasound to rule out an etopic pregnancy. The ultrasound revealed that I was 7 weeks pregnant and the little heart was beating away. The baby implanted below the iud on the same side of the uterus. I have seen all of the best doctors and the iud has been tried to be removed but they can not find the strings. I had surgery scheduled last week to have the iud removed by the top pelvic surgeon using a scope. The surgeon called the night before the surgery and said he had been reviewing all of the ultrasounds ( by this time I had had 4 ultrasounds)and he felt that he would have about a 90% chance of causing a miscarriage because of the iud's position. So needless to say the surgery was canceled. We are completely out of options so now we just have to wait to see what happens. My bleeding still continues even with cramping. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced an iud pregnancy and if so did you bleed? What was the outcome?
