I've heard that after 6 months, you are able to get pregnant even while BFing.
If I'm nursing a 11-12 month old child and want to start the process of trying to get pregnant again, is it even worth it to get my hopes up on conceiving within the next couple of months or shouldn't I hope for that until I ween my son?
No bashing, I honestly don't know.

You can get pregnant while breastfeeding. Has your period returned? If so then you chart your cycle and try to improve your chances of becoming pregnant that way. You CAN get pregnant before your child is 6 months old. Breastfeeding is NOT birth control. Yes it CAN HELP but it is not a guarantee that you're not going to get pregnant.
My personal experience is that I've not gotten pregnant while breastfeeding until my daughter was only nursing once or twice a day. However I was charting and avoiding until the time was right...I'm sure if we had TRIED during my fertile times then we would have been sucessful.
