how common is it to get preg 3 1/2 months post birth?

i took birth control 2 weeks after delivery and took it for 2 months, ran out, and havent been able to get more.....we bought condoms but we did it 1 or 2 times without one.

  • Do you think you're preggers? My "What to Expect the 1st Yr " book says it possible. And just as easy if you had never had a child. The likelyhood of you carrying to term is slim considering that your body hasnt had a chance to heal and get back to pre-baby state.

  • It is much easier to get pregnant the months following delivery. I got pregnant with my second 3 months after delivering my first. I had a great pregnancy and even went past my due date. Your body is used to carrying a baby. They do suggest waiting at least a year to conceive again but if you do get pregnant you can have a healthy pregnancy with a healthy happy full term baby. After I delivered my second my doctor said I really needed to wait at least a year to get pregnant again because 2 babies in 2 years is hard on the body! It is harder to lose the baby weight the second time though!!
