I had nearly the same thing happen to me. My baby girl is 15 weeks old and I had my period the first time after my pregnancy last month on Feb. 6th. This month on March 6th... no period. I was really scared bc the only form of bc I used was the pull out method. I just took a pregnancy test tonight on the 10th and I'm not pregnant. So, I started my birth control pill tonight. Hope it goes okay.

It's definitely possible to get pregnant that soon especially if you're having unprotected sex. Cravings have been said to be all in your mind so if that's your only symptom so far you shouldn't worry too much. Weight gain is also pretty common after having a baby since we tend to be less physically active. Everything depends on your birth control, your monthly cycle and if you've been having unprotected sex or not. If you are really having doubts a pregnancy test can help put you at ease.
