Trying to Get Pregnant

Need some advice

There's a chance I could be pregnant, but much sooner than I thought. It's kind of confusing, but my main question is this: When should I be testing? I know possible days that I could have gotten pregnant, however I haven't had a period since giving birth. I am almost 7 weeks postpartum from baby#1 (Please save any attack comments that it's too soon to be getting pregnant etc)

I have no idea if I ovulated and have not had a period.

Possible conception dates are Oct. 20, 24. Since then I had mild cramps for 3 days and more frequent headaches as well as increased discharge that seems more mucousy (sorry if tmi)

I did a hpt yesterday Nov 5, came back Negative. Could it be a false negative?

    Yes  We don't know.

  • Wait....you are only 7 weeks pp, no AF or cycle yet, and no confirmed O date, yet you think a pregnancy test could be wrong????

    2 weeks from the last day of unprotected sex is reliable confirmation.

  • We can't tell you when to test.  If you don't chart then you have on idea when or if you O'd.  Test once a week until AF shows, you get a BFP or reach CD60 then call your docter.

    1/20/2014: IT'S A GIRL! 

  • If you don't know when you ovulated, it could definitely be too early.  Or your body could still just be adjusting to post-partum.  There's no way to know you're pregnant other than a test - just keep testing once a week.  And use birth control if you're not actually wanting to get pregnant at this time, even if you're breast feeding it's not a sure-fire contraceptive, and neither is the fact that you haven't had a period yet - it's unlikely, but still possible, to get pregnant after giving birth even before you've had a period. 

    Best of luck!

    Given the background OP gave, 7 wks PP, no period etc, I'm not sure this advice would apply....?

    A few things a) if you are worried about being pregnant now doesn't that mean you had sex before your 6 week pp check up? That's usually a no no.

    b) you've already had a baby shouldn't you know when to friggen test since you are so willing to risk getting pregnant again so soon

    if you aren't educating yourself on when you should even be able to test shouldn't you use a condom for awhile

  • I'm confused. What makes you think you're pregnant? Mild cramps and headaches don't count, especially PP. Are you BFing? Using any contraception?

    And no, it wouldn't be a false negative. It could be too early to test (unlikely), or you're not pregnant (likely).

  • use protection.

    Keep testing.

  • How do you know there's a chance you could be pregnant if you haven't ovulated and haven't had a period?  Basically, you mean you had unprotected sex before your first PP period?  If that's it, wait a few more weeks, then test.  And in the meantime, use a condom if you don't want to be pregnant.

    You're 7 weeks PP - chances are pretty high that you aren't pregnant again.  Not impossible, but pretty good.

    It's okay to want to be pregnant right away again (I was/am in that boat), but if that's the case, then be intentional about it.  Take OPKs to try to determine if you're ovulating soon. 

    ETA: I wanted to be pregnant soon after my son was born (with my doc's blessing).  I didn't chart until I got my first PP period, then started charting again.  You could start charting now, but it will just tell you after the fact that you ovulated, which is at least some information.  Don't expect cycles post-baby to be the same as pre-baby.  At least they haven't been for me and I'm 6.5 months PP. 

  • It's not unusual for you not to have a period in 7 weeks since delivering especially if breastfeeding. Test again after 2 weeks from last unprotected sex and start using birth control.

  • OP, you posted more than two weeks ago on 0-3 about having had sex already and possible being pregnant. If you haven't turned a test positive by now, you probably aren't pregnant.

    I'm not even going to get into the fact that you had sex already. What's done is done. Hope you don't get an infection and use a condom if you don't want to be pregnant.

  • First of all your little girl is really cute.

    You had unprotected sex - but you are still post-partum - you may have to test again for a couple of weeks just to be sure.  That said - are you breastfeeding?  That delays your cycle from coming back - I didn't get my period until 3 months after I had stopped breastfeeding my DS (its different for everyone).

    Probably not a false negative - HPT are pretty accurate.

    Secondly, after reading your post two weeks ago on 0-3 are you trying to get pregnant again?

  • And I mean really, OP, if you are being serious with all of this, you know how babies get all up in there. If you want one, you have sex without any protection. If you don't, you buy some rubbers or whatever.

    Hell, you might not even be ovulating. But test every week anyway. If you want more kids now, keep going at it like rabbits. If not, go get some foam or a shot or have your OB snap one of those IUDs in you. Easy peasy.
