4 weeks postpartum and pregnant?

My son is 4 weeks old. I have been having unprotected sex for a couple of days, and one night hubby did go inside of me... One those days that i did, i ended up ovulating that night (i think, there was clear stringy, thick mucus from my panties to my body.... What are the chances i could get/be pregnant again?highly likely, or not so much? i know its possible, just wondering the odds though

  • Its very likely.. Your body still isnt fully healed up so it is easier for you to get pregnant.

  • Ooo man, that would suck. Don't you know you're supposed to wait at least 6 weeks before sex?!?

  • no! it was just one of those STUPID "in the heat of the moment" type i dont even know what to think or expect now with my period and all not breast feeding, so im guessing it should be here soon?

  • Um...I'd say the odds are pretty good that you could be pregnant!! I can't believe you'd even have sex unprotected that soon after a baby!!

  • that's pretty stupid. you can get pregnant before your period restarts. you can get pregant if your husband does not ejaculate in you.

  • Okay now that it's been said several times - & i know that you feel guilty but yes you can be pregnant no point in bashing talking about how "stupid" it may be ; because I'm sure your already beating yourself up; but just go and talk to your doctor about it when it comes time for you to go back to your doctor appt. & good luck

  • Its very likely and as for the period I got mine at 8 weeks post partum so pretty quick after the delivery. If you are pregnant congrats its a blessing no matter how soon it happens!

  • the first post I read said 6 weeks after post partum WRONG not what my doctor told me after having DD, he told me that IF I FEEl like it I could but at the time I did not want another child and six years later I am wanting another one but have not gotten pregnant. And even if you want to bash go some where eles and DO it cause I think that is JUST down right RUDE to a person, yes it may have been wrong but this person has to live with it regaurdless!!
