  • It happens a lot. There is even a saying for children born less than 12 months apart--Irish Twins.

  • you are more likely to get pregnant after having a baby.

  • I know someone who got pregnant 3 weeks after giving birth. You are more fertile after giving birth then any other time of your life, and it happens all the time. Just like a PP said they call them irish twins, siblings less then 12 months apart. If you're not wanting to get pregnant now you'd be very smart to invest in condoms. Although most dr.'s say nothing in the vagina for 6 weeks after birth because you risk infection.

  • I personally think a woman should wait until she loses all her pregnancy weight before getting pregnant again. Think about it like gain 30 lbs. from pregnancy, you have the baby and lose maybe only 10 lbs. Then you gain 30 more lbs. Just think you will have 50 lbs. to lose instead of 20 and 50 lbs. is not easy to lose.
