Could I possibly be pregnant? Please give me a reality check.

I had a baby 5 months ago and I have exclusively breastfed since then. I have only had one period since giving birth. I had sex again 4 weeks postpartum, and the last time was two weeks ago. I wasnt taking my birth control correctly! I have taken 4 pregnancy tests, all negative.
My question is...could breastfeeding make the tests incorrect? I've been experiencing some weird symptoms..flutters in my stomach, increased appetite, tiredness. I think I am imagining things. Please tell me your opinion.

  • Breastfeeding will not mask a pregnancy. But you could have a false negative. It is most likely you are not pregnant. :)
