I gave birth to my handsome boy 4 weeks ago. Here is some backround. DH and I don't use any form of BC, for religious reasons. We resumed DTD right after postpartum bleeding stopped around 12 days postpartum. I am EBF LO, and have never gotten pregnant while breastfeeding (we have several children) Anyway, I bought tons of cheap pregnancy test online because we don't use birth control and I like to test "just in case." I tested 3 weeks postpartum and got a very very very light positive that you could barely see. So I decided to test every few days to see if it fades and I will start getting negatives. A few days later it was negative. A few days after that again negative. I had some nausea and decided to test again today and guess what I have a visible light positive with FMU. And so when I got home tonight I decided to test again (since I have 50 tests LOL) and again visible light positive!
Question is, would hormones stay in our body 4 weeks after birth? If so why would my tests be negative and now getting light but stronger positive 4 weeks and a few days after birth!? I very well could be pregnant again, and DH and I would be happy.
Now I know many of you don't agree with being intimate before 6 weeks postpartum. BUT this is my body and my and my DH's choice to resume our love life. We, because of religous reasons do not believe in using BC. And if you ladies can not bash and please do not judge our family and or our choice. As obviously you would not want me to judge your family and your choices (I say this, because I know how forums, and boards can quickly become high school drama)Remember "he who has no sin (and obviously being intimate with my husband before 6 weeks without birth control is NOT a sin) cast the first stone" So with all this said, if you don't have advice/info for me then skip this thread please. Thankyou =)
