i put this as a poll also, but i'm putting here....

Okay. my husband&i recently had our first child. instead of waiting the recommended 6wks, we went ahead last night and did. everything was fine but then i remembered - we didn't use protection! likely is it that i'd get pregnant again? beacuse that would really put a "damper on my plans" so to speak

  • lol. 1countrygal is right though. I keep thinking I should just start buying a pregnancy test everytime I grocery shop. Because with my extra weight and no period I'll be 6 months pregnant before I even realize it!

  • yea, you are really fertile after you give birth. So there is a chance you are pregnant lol.. as there always is when you have unprotected sex. Good luck, and I hope you're not, if you don't want to.
