Hello everyone, I just delivered my daughter almost five weeks ago while I was only 21 weeks pregnant . . She was found with no heartbeat and later finding out that her umbilical cord being wrapped around her neck. I had bleeding for the first three weeks and haven't had a period yet. I've been feeling sleepy, hungry and I finally took a pregnancy test last night and it came out positive with a faint line. How many weeks could I be if I haven't had my period yet?

Ev I really understand what you're saying, I guess I was just depressed and wanted another baby sp quickly that I wasn't thinking clearly. I've done another pregnancy test and it came out negative and I've gotten my cycle yesterday. So as we were told we can start trying again in December after I've had two complete cycles.

And no one's body is the same as anothers: "but my body is totally different from everyone else" so that quoted item from your post does not mean that you should be having sex three weeks after the birth of a child. There is a reason why doctors want you to wait to do certain activities after certain medical procedures such as surgeries, broken bones, brain trauma from head injuries, and other things like birth. They would not want you to wait to go to full activities until your body had time to heal.

But it is not healthy. Docs say to wait 6 weeks for a reason at the minimum. Three weeks is not 6 weeks. You risk a lot of health issues by having sex too soon.

Dove don't get upset with me. I've been through this before with my first two kids. My first was a preemie and my second was a full term. Their birth days are back to back so it is wat it is.

I don't think anyone is suggesting you terminate your pregnancy... but you and the baby (if there is a baby) are at risk by you conceiving too early. That's just a fact. It takes time to heal from pregnancy and childbirth and while many women do conceive again shortly after birth... it puts their body and their baby at risk for complications EVERY time. I didn't even mention the bleeding after birth because that's not the only thing to heal from....

Whatever though... it's your body and your baby at risk, so... whatever.

Sarah thanks for your concern but I stopped bleeding three weeks after I delivered my daughter. I would never have sex while bleeding. And God is still good and he does things for a reason. I've taken two pregnancy test and they both came out positive and I will go see my doctor tomorrow and if that one is positive I will not terminate my pregnancy for nobody because everyone is different.

Thanks for being concerning of me but my body is totally different from everyone else. I stopped bleeding three weeks ago. As far as me losing my daughter is a different thing. I still grieve over losing her no matter what and I will never forget her; I will always think of her. I have plenty of support to help me get through this; I have my fiance, our three kids and my mother. We've only had sex twice and it just happened. So with all of that being said thanks

I am a faithful woman and I do believe that my life is in God's hand. However, God graced humans with two gifts; intellect and free-will. To ignore your doctor's advice and have sex within weeks, even while still bleeding was very foolish.

5 weeks after giving birth (even though it was a loss)... you should not be having sex yet. You put yourself at great risk for infection and potential harm to not only yourself, but a new baby as well... Not to mention giving yourself no time to grieve...

5 weeks after giving birth it is highly likely that (though I'm not doctor, so it's not a guarantee) the positive pregnancy test is still hormones from the previous pregnancy.

If you are NOT pregnant right now... please wait. Let your body heal and your heart grieve... at least give it another 3-6 months.

Are you saying that you planned to get pregnant so soon after the loss of a child? Usually most moms are too sad to think about another baby.

You child was stillborn? I am very sorry. Were you even cleared to have sex so soon? If you already have a positive home test, you are at least 3 weeks (or as Michelle pointed out you are still resolving hormonal from the initial pregnancy) which means you'd have had sex 2 weeks post delivery? Way too soon to have intercourse after any delivery.

We have no idea. You will need to see your doctor and get a blood test done.
If you didn't want to fall pregnant then you should have used condoms. You ovulate before you get your period and are very fertile after having a baby.
The test could have picked up residual pregnancy hormones as well. Like I said, go to your doctor.
