could i be pregnant already?

i had a stillbirth delivery at 17 weeks pregnant and had a dnc following...i had sex 10 days after giving birth and the dnc and think i may be pregnant...i am having morning sickness just as i did before with my son, who i lost almost 5 weeks ago....and im having alot of the symptoms that i had before with my first pregnancy...i have heard you are most fertile after having a baby but im not sure if im pregnant or not...if i am i would only be 3 weeks but that is when i started having morning sickness with my son...could it be too soon to get pregnant?

  • Your hormones could still be out of whack from your pregnancy, causing similar symptoms. Go get a blood test to make sure your HCG levels are down to zero, or you could have real medical trouble. Seriously, it's nothing to take lightly. Sorry for the loss of your son.

  • Yes you could. It would have been better to allow your body to heal. Anytime you have unprotected sex you run the risk of getting pregnant unless you are already pregnant or you are no longer ovulating.
    I wish you the best.
