I just had a baby and I think I may be pregnant again already

I have a 4 month old and my I am breastfeeding so I know that has a lot to do with why I feel pregnant, but I don't know if I should go to the doctor or not to find out for sure. I haven't had a period since the birth of my son, but I hear that is normal while breastfeeding. My husband told me he had an accident about 2 months ago though and now I am scared because I feel very pregnant, but I don't know if it's from breastfeeding or I really am. I don't want to go to the doctor cuz it would be embarassing, but would a home pregnancy test be accurate with all the hormones from breastfeeding??? Any advice would help.......

  • Yes, a home pregnancy test will work. I got pregnant when my first was 5 months, but I was weaning then too. I had yet to have a period, I just had a feeling.

  • Honey take the test and see. And if you are Congratulations!!! Baby's are a Blessing and although they would be close together it will be for a reason!

  • I agree with the others. Just take a home test & then you will know. Then you can decide on the whole dr. issue from there.

    It happens & if you are, then you can move forward from there. It might not make sense now & it might seem impossible, but it will all work out:)

    Take Care!
