You can definitely get pregnant while breastfeeding. There have been and are MANY cases where couples used breastfeeding as a form of birth control and surprise surprise they got pregnant. Breastfeeding is not a contraceptive.

It is possible, my sister got pregnant with my nephew when my niece was 6 weeks old, wait to see if you miss your period and when you take a pregnancy test make sure to do 1st thing in the morning :)

Yes, you very well could be pregnant. Exclusive breastfeeding is not a form of birth control. 18 weeks makes the baby about 4 to 4-1/2 months old, so it's very possible to be pregnant again. My 3rd and 4th children were almost that close together, I tested positive when my 3rd child was about 5 months old.

NO method is 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.. unless the female has had a complete hysterectomy. Condoms break, women forget to take pills, vasectomies go wrong. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_... ---- OP knows there is a potential for pregnancy already based on the fact that she did not use any protection. LAM, when done correctly (frequent feedings, no supplementing and if you haven't had your period yet) can be as effective (within 98%) as the other artificial methods out there. I'm not saying she rely only on LAM, I didn't assume she is breastfeeding, simply pointing out that if she is exclusively breastfeeding, she could be covered under this protection and not be pregnant given her daughter's young age. At 18 weeks, she is still very much post-partum and any sickness/cramping could also relate to the birth and other stresses of being a new mom.

Are you still breastfeeding full time? Then if so, NO you probably are not pregnant because LAM protects you for about the first 6 months (or as long as you are full time breastfeeding). The Lactation Amenorrhea Method by breastfeeding is only effective when you are exclusively breastfeeding and no supplementing with formula. You COULD be pregnant if you are not BF only.

Yup very well possible you could be, especially since it was unprotected sex. My husband and sister inlaw are 13 months apart. I would test a pregnancy test about a week after your period is due.

absolutely, it is possible. My husband and his sister are 11 1/2 months apart.
