Pregnant after having a baby?

[deleted account] ( 14 moms have responded )

I had a baby about 5 weeks ago and started taking birthcontrol at 2 weeks and had sex at 4. Its four days before I should have my period and started puking last night and thoughti was sick so went to the doctor and they couldnt find anything thing wrong. Could I be pregnant again? Would I be feeling the symptoms this early?

I had my baby a month ago and I had sex with my hubby 2 times I just stopped bleeding like 3 days ago and I was wondering could you still get pregnant if we didn't use protection but he pulled out? He didn't finish in me at all just a little paranoid, I have my 6 week check up on Wednesday !

My grandma never even seen a pregnancy test till i was pregnant with my first child. She told me the day after conception, somehow, she would wake up and puke and she would know she was pregnant. She had 6 pregnancies and all 6 were this way. She only gave birth to 4 kids, but knew the day after with every one of them..... It may have been her body reacting to the egg being feterlized, it could have been a number of things, but it is def possible to feel symptoms before the pregnancy hormone is in your system.

get checked out at your 6 week check or make another appt with your OBGYN. I personally was not ready for sex until about 7 weeks and I didnt even have so much as a tear or stitch. we fooled around in other ways after about 3 or 4 weeks. I hardly had any postpartum bleeding maybe a week? but i'm still breastfeeding a 9 month old and have only had 2 periods so far. I got a little freaked out after the 1st period (he was 6 months) and the 2nd didnt show up for another 5 weeks. my body is still really irregular from having a baby and nursing so I get a little paranoid even though we use protection. i started taking the mini breastfeeding pill and it diminished my supply so I haven't been on anything really since i got preg that 1st time (i was on the pill then, ugh) however one of my best friends had a baby this fall and got pregnant about 2-3 weeks after having her and miscarried before she knew she was even pregnant again. it was very sad for her and her husband even though they didnt want more children to have lost one like that. best of luck either way. xo

Also, I want to add that after my first baby, I started on the Nuva Ring, and it made me have ALL symptoms of pregnancy. I had morning sickness for a month, missed my period which was suppose to come during the week of leaving the ring out... So it could just be your body reacting to the birth controll.

allison your real first period wont start until you are a month give or take the days after your bleeding has stoped....and also to the other ladies who said sex shouldnt be done until the dr says to yes that is correct but there is nothing wrong with it they tell you that mostly cuz it can slow or hurt the chances of healing faster or properly after having my first i had sex before the 6 weeks a few times really after my second i did not cuz i had stitches but allison after your bleeding has stoped a month after is when around your period should come i wouldnt take a test just yet because your hormones are still going down from your pregnancy you still have a higher level than normal or you may still have a higher level and that could cause a false pos so id wait a week at the earliest after your bleeding has stoped and if you are still feeling sick but you dont want to test until closer to your period go to the dr set up a few app for blood work and they can see if your level is rising again and that will be a sure thing and speak with your dr about your conserens with another pregnancy at your 6 week check up and he may test you there

You could be but since your still having postpartum bleeding and are on birthcontrol I doubt it. I would wait till you stop bleeding and wait a month to see if your body is going to have an actual period or take some pregnancy tests a few days after you stop the postpartum bleeding. It could be that the birthcontrol is making you sick also. Even if it was the same kind of birthcontrol you were on before since your body is still releasing hormones it can have a different reaction.

It's possible.. but really highly unlikely. Especially if you're breastfeeding, and given you are on birth control. I would bet you have some kind of virus or food poisoning.

well yes you can ive heard of a few ppl going to their 6th week check up and have their dr say honey your pregnant and they go and do it all again i can only imagine what the stress would be knowing your child you just had would be 9 to 10 months old and you will be planning for the birth of this child and then the 1st birthday of another and yes you can start to show signs the min of conseption but you could still just be going threw some postpardom id say take a test but your a bit to early watch for your period and about a week after your period if still not reseved take a test and if you get a neg wait 3 days and try again for a week to a week and a half i think

I am sorry, I dont know exactly.. but i do know i got pregnant for my second on while i was on the breastfeeding pill, orthomicronor... I would take a test to find out. I am sure it could be possible.. dont know if you would have the symptoms right away but they may be more prominent because your hormones are probably still a little out of whack from just having a baby.

I don't know, A woman that my brother in law works with said she got pregnat after having her baby. She went to her 6 week post partum check up and she was already pregnant again. She wasn't having any symptoms. But you're really not supposed to have sex until the doctor says it is ok. I wasn't ready to have sex again until 7 or 8 weeks after my kids were born.
