    need advice.

    I have a baby on 7/31/11...I got my first period 6 wks after given is now 36 days from my last period...usually I am 26-28 days between periods...I know that ur body is different after having a baby. but could I be prego again??? is anyone's cycle affected by having a baby? im taking a test in a bit, just want to get some insight.

    if I was prego, my baby would be delivered only 12 days before my sons first b-day!!!!!

    also, it took me 5 yrs to have my first child...could I possible be really fertile now??

    Wow...yes it is possible (obviously)...Something about the hormone balance in the body. I've actually known a lot of gals who have gotten pregnant right away...Irish twins.

    Well hopefully this is good news even if unexpected. Congrats!

    My SIL got pregnant without having a post-partum period. She breastfed full-time so that suppressed her period for about a year. A few months later she thought she was getting her period but turns out she was pregnant.
