Possibly pregnant???
LisaG7231981 posted:
Hi everyone! I'm new here and am not pregnant, as far as I know, but I have questions for anyone that is willing to or can answer or offer any help. I'm sorry in advance as this may be a little long and with TMI. Ok, well I recently had a baby who is now 3 1/2 months old. Well, I think I got my period when she turned 8 weeks. I'm not completely sure it was my period because I had still been bleeding on and off from giving birth and so that could have been what it was. I didn't have any of the cramping, headaches or bloating that usually go along with a period. Then when my baby turned 9 weeks, I had the Essure procedure done to block my tubes. I won't know if it was successful until next month (it takes 3 months). Well my husband and I had sex when my baby was 10 weeks. We used a condom but it broke and I had been taking the mini pill for birth control. Well since about a week ago, my breasts have been very tender and have been having some mild cramping. Oh, I also need to add that I am breastfeeding my baby as well. I know the signs of being pregnant but could I be pregnant??? I'm so scared because I don't know that I can have another baby so soon. I need thoughts/opinions on what anyone thinks I should do? Any and all advice is welcome and very much appreciated! Thank you all!!!

Welcome Lisa and congratulations on your little girl!

If you had sex over four weeks ago and have concerns, a home pregnancy test should be reliable. Just follow the directions and make sure to use first morning urine if the instructions call for it.

Best wishes and let us know how you're doing,
