Okay lately i've been feeling really dumb asking this...? adult content

okay i'm 3month's 1week postpartum from delivering my second son...i have stop breast feeding during the first few weeks cause i wasn't making enough milk for my son, but my fiancée and i have had sexual intercourse in between now and then & i've had my period but this month we thought we would try for another baby ... i am pretty much a stay at home mom with my boys ... for some random reason i started leaking today... i know my period isn't supposed to start until the 23 of this month but we did have intercourse during my ovulation time (we did a test to find out when i was ovulating-since other methods don't tend to work)
so the main question is could i be pregnant or am i just lactating for reason's i don't know since i haven't for over 2months now...

so could i be pregnant and when's the best time to test to find out if i am or not ... ?

  • i'd wait till the day u r supposed to get period then test if it hasnt shown. i know with my last baby i couldnt get a + on a urine test till 8 weeks along so try not to get discouraged. and your lil one is still very young you have lots of time! hugs

  • @annon.....have you ever had that problem??? as a mom that was bearly able to breastfeed a month, its very stressfulto hear from a doc that baby isnt gaining weight because baby isnt eatting enough. not producing enough breast milk can be caused by a number of reasons, but this isnt a ff or bf debate post, so dont reply if you have nothing nice to say, simple right?

  • I think your body is still all over the place after your pregnancy, it can take months to get back to normal, mind you, your a LOT more likely to get pregnant again soon after giving birth as your much more fertile. You should definately do a test to ease your mind :)

  • I was still leaking 4 months after I had my son, and I stopped breastfeeding when he was 2 weeks old.

  • & @annon... uhm ya when my son's hungry and i wasn't making enough milk for him yes... obviously he was still hungry and at which that wasn't the question... and of course you can say what you want t but i did talk to many specialist... so it wasn't he wasn't latching properly but i simply wasn't making enough heck he eat's almost 10ozs every 4hrs and is only 3months & 1week old...

  • I love the "I wasn't making enough" excuse. How did you know you weren't making enough? Did your baby tell you?
