  • definately.... you are the most fertile after you have a child.... go to the dr and get a blood test...

  • Yes you can get pregnant right after you have a kid. Go in and get a blood could just be that your hormones havnt went down since having the baby.

  • False positives are more common right after giving birth, however yes it is possible. I'd visit your dr. GL

  • My hubby was born 11 short months after his older sister! Everyone teases their parents about not even having the courtesy to wait until they left the hospital to break the doctors orders lol. I would go in for a blood test just to make sure it is a true positive and not just your hormones still coming down from your 7 week old. GL!!

  • I was told those hormones drop significantly in your system almost to zero a week or so after having your baby. If you are testing positive for the hormone.. You are prob pregnant again .. I don't know..I would take another test and head to the doctors. Good Luck!

  • You are VERY fertile after giving birth. So yeah......that's why they highly recommend BIRHTCONRTOL or abstinence or some form of protection. Durh. LOL. My condolences to you.

  • It sure is! My cousin's are 10 months apart.

  • If you had a baby 7 weeks ago, it is also possible that you still have the HCG (pregnancy hormone) circulating in your body. The only way to confirm yay or nay is to have your doctor order a blood test that will measure the amount of the hormone present. Basically, they'll draw your blood one day, then again over the next day or so. If the hormone increases, your pregnant. If it decreases, your not. Oh...and unless you want another baby anytime soon....then....well, you know.
