I am a 19 year old new momma. My son is 5 months old. Once he was born i hadnt started on any birth control, and still haven't. My son will be 6 months old on December 12. My period is still irregular. Some months i get it every week and a half to two weeks. At this point my husband and i still have sex pretty reguarly (about 3-4 times a week or more). Any way, I have been experiencing some pregnancy symptoms (i.e., fatigue, bloating, diarrhea, and enhanced smells.) yet, i am still experiencing period like bleeding. is it possible to be pregnant and still have bleeding due to having a baby not to long ago??

Yes, it is. I had my period for the first 7 months of pregnancy with my second child. I got pregnant with him 6 months after having my first child. Unlike you though, I had no other symptoms. Take a pregnancy test or go to the doctor to find out.

Ladies: I had sex a week before my period. I was 2 days late and finally started. It was somewhat normal for two days and now it's spotting going on. I have not felt we'll at all. If I have a period of any kind like this, does this mean there is no way I am pregnant? I it is possible when can I take a test to know? My date of sex was 4/7. Started 2 days late on 4/14.

I do miss the baby days! But it's just as cool to watch other people's babies and send them home after! I have been babysitting my niece and nephews for years now and it's funny how different they all are. But in a lot of ways they are the same too! And i'm sure my husband wouldn't be too happy if he knew i was telling that story! But it is cute! Especially now, because he's such a "man's man" you know?!

Thank you! i think hes pretty adorable!! haha. We put Deagan in a jumper, and he thinks its the greatest thing!! he smiles soo big! its like a walker and johnny jump up combine. its a stationary johnny jump up. he loves it. at my mother in laws, he has a walker. he loves it! he goes backwards, just like you said your daughter did. but recently he has started going forward. normally with help from one of is. he'll take a step or two on his own and stop. if he hold one of his hands and one of us is saying "come here, Deagan!," he walks with us to the other person! its awesome!! that is funny about your husband! Deagan absoluetly does new things when i least expect them! it sorta sucks, cuz id love to record it all!

Deagan sounds adorable! And it's normal the way you describe his crawling!! One day soon you'll look over and he'll be crawling! Destiny rocked back and forth on her hands and knees before she started crawling. Like you said it looks like they want to, but don't have the strength yet. I put Destiny in a walker for 1/2hr to an hour a day to strengthen her little legs. She was ecstatic! She had the freedom to push herself all over the house! At first she could only push herself backwards! She would get stuck in some corner and need a push in a different direction! It was funny though!

My husband never crawled! His mother has pictures of him scooting on his butt to get where he was going! He scooted right out of his diapers! She said it was wicked funny! Then one day, he stood up and walked! They all have there special day, and i think they want to get the biggest shock out of us by doing new things when we least expect it!

Deagan rolls from belly to back to belly all over my livingroom floor. i turn my head for like 3 seconds and hes across the room!! lol. babies do have the cutest laughs! it makes me smil so big when he laughs and smiles. im enjoying every minute!! and Deagan tries to crawl...he gets on his knees with his little butt in the air but he cant seem to get onto his hands at the sae time. his face plants into the floor. im not sure why..i guess he just doesnt have the arm/back muscles yet. hes starting to get the idea of army crawling though. gina, i will def keep you posted on the possible pregnancy! thanks for your intrest!! :)

Time does fly! Has he started crawling at all? I love when they first start laughing and smiling! Babies have the cutest laughs. I am glad that you are enjoying it! And remember to continue to keep me posted!

A lot of people have been telling me that, i need to wait a few weeks to take another test, because since i just got over being pregnant that my body can detect and show signs before a test will. so im going to wait for a couple weeks. although i do have a check up this month, so we'll see there too. my son is almost 6 months old and it has flown!!! it fees like its only been a few weeks since he was born. hes doing so much already.

It's good that you took the tests! But when I was pregnant with Destiny I took multiple home tests, because i thought i was pregnant, they all came out negative! Until i was 12 weeks along then it was positive. So maybe when you have your next check-up you could request a blood test. Those are more accurate. They can read smaller amounts of HGC levels.

Then again maybe your not pregnant! And you can focus all of your attention on one baby and your husband! These years do by quick! It doesn't seem that way while we're going through them! Your still so young, there is plenty of time to have more!

I took 2 pregnancy tests, last night. The first was an invaild result, (i guess the test was defected, nothing came up.) and the second was negative. i also got my period again. so as far as i know, im not pregnant. i plan to take snother test soon, though, just in case. @Amy- did you get your period while pregnant because you had just given birth??

My due date was June 5th. They said if she didn't come on her own within the week they would have to induce my labor. And 7 days later she came on her own!

Finances are never good, and having two babies in diapers would be hard. But it could be good too, like you said, you already have all the baby stuff. And all the newborn care fresh in your mind.

Either way i hope it works out for you. I want to know if your pregnant now probably more than you do!! Make sure to post it somewhere when you find out!!

Good luck

Oh and 32 lbs is not bad at all! I gained 62 lbs!! I weigh less now then i did when i got pregnant, so i've lost like 90lbs since then. It's funny that i never cared about weight until i had my daughter. I was always thin as a teenager and didn't think the 25 lbs extra was that big of a deal. Now if i gain 3 lbs i notice it right away! Good job on losing all that weight so fast!!

that is weird!! i gained 32 pounds, and i had lost 22 of it. now ive gained, 7 of it back...i feel like it would be okay to be pregnant again because we already are in "baby mode," all the baby stuff is still all over my house.. reguardless if i am pregnant baby stuff will be every where for awhile, so why not just add a baby?! except my husband is the only one working..so financally it will be really hard.

my son was 5lb9oz and 18.5in long. and he was a day late. my due date was June 11.

My daughter was born at 3:34 am!! That is just too weird! 10 minutes and 10 years apart!

Nobody ever accused a man of being patient when it comes to waiting for sex right!! It took me like two years to shed the "baby" weight, so the fact that you can still see your belly button is amazing!! I gained soo much weight. They say it's better sometimes to have all your babies as close together as possible, so it just may be a blessing! Just make sure he's changing his share of diapers!

Just to see if they have other similarities my daughter was 21inches long, 8lb 10.8oz

I plan on taking a pregnancy test in a couple more weeks...to be honest i just dont want to know if i am, just yet! At my six week check up i wasnt pregnant but that was the last pregnancy test i had. (I had them check because my husband and i only waited 3 weeks to start having sex again.) Im very nervous that im pregnant again. To add to the pressure, my husband has mentioned that ive put on weight and that my belly button looks stretched like it did when i was pregnant the first time. Yes!!, my son was born on June 12, at 3:44am. And i turned 19 a month and a half after he was born. Thank for your advice and encouraging words.

Yes! You should watch the show, "I didn't know I was pregnant". Find an episode on utube. You should go to your doctor and get an ultrasound done. Just to make sure. Six months means you could be like four months pregnant again. At 19 I can't imagine having two babies that young would be an easy thing, but all babies are a blessing! I hope it works out for the best either way. Congratulations on your precious little addition! I think if i'm counting right then your baby has the same birthday as my little girl! 6-12? My daughters 10 and i had her at almost the same age you are now! I had her when i was 18 and turned 19 that Oct.
