my husband and i resumed having sex 4 days after little one was born and we are not using any birth control. Between the 2 of us we have 4 kids 4 and under. I am wanting to get pregnant again when ever it happens is any one else thinking of the next baby already.

I don't want to get pregnant right away I want to be able to enjoy this baby. I am not sure if I will have anymore or not.

FYI on the brestfeeding thing... a lot of the time breastfeeding will cause you to not ovulate, the reason it is not reliable birth control is becuse you never know when you will start ovulating again. Unfortunately if you are trying to get pregnant it could be difficult while you are breastfeeding. Good luck and let me just say 4 days!! OMG! lol you must have had a C-section or else you are just braver than me. :)

It is advises not to have sex for at least 6 weeks after birth and wait 1 year to allow your body to get over the shock this is advice i was given by a midwife but it is your choice

breastfeeding is NOT a birthcontrol, you can still get pregnany........FYI..... i am a nurse at an ob/gyn........a lot of people think that if your breastfeeding you wont get pregnany..you do still ovulate so yes you can still get pregnant.

no my period has not came back yet. I was pregnant by the time my 1st was 4 months old. i waited 3 weeks after my 1st one vaginal, one week after my 2nd baby c-section. The nurse said it was ok if i was up to it. but to use birth control if i did not want another one right a way. I am also totally breastfeeding except she gets a nuk.

Nope! We have a 2 1/2 yr old, 13m old, and now a 1m old. We didn't use BC after my 13m old (planned) and got pregnant around 3/4 months after. Has your period returned already? I'm just getting over mine. (And it is my period, not pregnancy bleeding). We have begun having sex but are taking precautions. I will be getting on BC as soon as I can! We want one more but it will be at least a year before we even try.
