Breast Feeding and Possible Pregnancy?
I am a mother of a 3 year old and a 11 month old baby. I am still currently feeding my baby and have not yet had a period since he was born (I already know that breast feeding him is the reason why I do not have my period) My husband and I decided almost a month ago to try to conceive our last child. I believe that I could have gotten pregnant about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I just dont know when I should actually test since I have not had my period in such a long time and also when should I stop breast feeding my 11 month old if I am pregnant. Lately I have been feeling tired, a little quezzy, more gas then normal, and I have started to break out on my face. Has anyone else experienced this as well while they were breast feeding.
Thank you:

Re: Breast Feeding and Possible Pregnancy?
You should test about 2 weeks after you had sex. As for breastfeeding, there is no reason to stop unless you have a really high risk pregnancy. But some babies self wean because the milk starts to taste different. And you may lose your milk supply while pregnant. Good luck!

Re: Breast Feeding and Possible Pregnancy?
Hi there.....I am in a similar situation my baby 10 months ago.....and had not had my peroid yet either, but I am not thinking it is too likely to get pg. I get pg VERY easily all three of my kids were concieved right away, and I have not been using protection since she has been born and no pregnancy. My thing is how do you even know when you ovulate when you are not getting your peroid???
