Can I get pregnant if I'm pumping?

When my son was 3 1/2 months old I had to stop breastfeeding due to his acid reflux but @ my sons 6 month check up he had out grew it so recently I'm trying to produce my milk supply and slowly wing him off his AC formula but I was told that I couldn't get pregnant while my hormones are focusing on my milk supply, Is this true?

YES!!!! You can actually get pregnant any time you have sex, even when you are breastfeeding, simply because you don't know when you are going to start ovulating. Even if you are breastfeeding. While your chances of getting pregnant are much lower when you are EXCLUSIVELY breastfeeding, it is an absolute myth that it can't happen.
