odds are?

Ok so my son is two weeks old, my hubby and i are both military and are stationed cross country from each other. When he came out for paternity leave we had sex a couple of times. Now i know we should have waited or used bc, but we didnt. If we are pregnant again its ok, we wouldnt mind. I just want to know how likely it is. Please no judgments, if we are we will be ok and happy.

  • I would say very UNlikely. It can happen but with your son only being 2 weeks, it's not likely you have started to ovulate again. And if you are breastfeeding it would decrease the chance.

  • Highly probable, I would say. If I were you, I'd check Webmd or google it. Good question...and good luck!

  • Very likely and I have to say it's going to be ROUGH...on your body and on the baby already here. We had a surprise and if I had known our birth control would fail, we'd have just abstained.

  • Are you breastfeeding? Because that sometimes gives some protection, at least in the beginning.

  • Had you stopped bleeding yet? I was told you can get pregant as soon as you stop bleeding post partum but you never know. Timing has to be just right compared to ovulation and all that.
