Okay.. so i just had a baby,hes almost 2 months old. On the 28th i had unprotected sex, And the 1st i got my period,the first one since i gave birth its not heavy though like it used to be, its pretty light .Since i have a whole new cycle now im not sure when i ovulated or anything like that but i heard its very possible to get pregnant the first 6-8 weeks after birth. I just wanna know if anyone has been in my situation? Have you gotten pregnant a few days before your period and still had your period? and when did you test?
Also with my last pregnancy i got symptoms RIGHT away, thats how i knew that i was pregnant,i didnt even have to take a test to know. lol Well thats what i feel like now, the past couple of days ive been feeling off, but not period off, and today i feel very nauseous.(all how i felt my last pregnancy)

You are the most fertile after giving birth believe it or not. I really hope your doctor explained how important it is for your body to heal after birth, and to wait a bit before trying for another. It would be the best interest for your health that you use protection at least until you find out. If you are not pregnant, consider continuing using protection.

do a pregnancy test, do it at home so u can know the result as soon. & remember if you are breast feeding your baby in some cases you will seize your menses,
nauseous? it seems you are not dieting well after your delivery. try to change your dietary pattern for your baby because you need more energy to feed her/him

I understand that you and your boyfriend would be ok with another child, but 6 weeks after having a baby is probably not ideal for your body.

Some women have experienced menstrual bleeding whilst pregnant. The only way to know is to test, or visit your physician.

LOTS of people get pregnant shortly after having a baby. I haven't, so I can't offer experience. i was actually aware of the fact that unprotected sex would lead to pregnancy even if I hadn't already had a period, but many don't realise this. It is absolutely possible for you to be pregnant, especially if you are choosing to have unprotected sex (not a great ide shortly after having a baby).

I would suggest you do a test.
