If you know THAT LITTLE about sex and pregnancy I doubt you are mentally or emotionally prepared to properly care for and raise a child at this point. You cannot get pregnant again while you are pregnant.
You need to prepare yourself to parent this child or make other custody arrangements for it. This far into your pregnancy, you should have already read books like "What to Expect when You Are Expecting" (this one would have answered that question, so I assume you haven't read it or others like it) "What to Expect the First Year" and so on. And though you've probably taken your Infant CPR class, do make sure the father has taken his CPR class as well--sometimes dads neglect it because they figure they won't be watching the baby unless mom is with them, but they should be certified too.
And the research shouldn't stop once the baby is born. During his or her infant year, you need to begin research on discipline and and early childhood development so that you are prepared for those stages.
You CAN get pregnant almost immediately after your baby is born--and it is DANGEROUS TO DO SO--so follow your docs advice and don't have sex until he or she gives you permission, and whey you do have sex, USE PROTECTION. If you were using protection for this one, and it failed, use at least two forms from now on until you are ready to have another child. (ex. you have an IUD, he uses a condom) Do not use foams or spermicides with condoms because they erode the condom and cause it to break or leak, then the sperm goes in beyond the point of the spermicide, and you are unprotected.

OMG. If you can't even understand how your reproductive organs work, then you have no right having sex and babies. I can't believe in this day and age that a 17 year old actually doesn't know that she stops ovulating when she is pregnant. Where did you get your education? In the stone age?

Do you mean get pregnant with another baby while you are 7 months pregnant? If that is the case... how old are you and where did you get your sex education from? PLEASE pick up a few books on sexual education facts before you become a parent.
