  • How soon "can" you? or how soon "should" you? You can get pregnant pretty soon after birth although its not recommended. My best friend was pregnant when she returned for her 6 week check up after having her first. Her kids are 10 mo. apart.

  • I agree with the above statements, but personally, I couldn't find the time to even work on it. I really didn't even want to find it, I just wanted to sleep. :-)

  • different people start ovulating at different times. I've seen people with babies so close together that it's like "really? did you even wait to get home from the hospital??"

  • Longer (usually) if you're breastfeeding. Almost immeadiatly if you're using formula.
