am i pregnant?
Question: My son is 4 months old and I am not breastfeeding (we tried but he was in NICU for a month after he was born due to spina bifida and hydrosephalus, needed 2 surgeries and lots of love) anyway, I breastfed him while he was in the hospital the best i could by pumping and feeding him through a bottle but when he came home i breastfed for only a few weeks, he was one month old but my milk supply was gone... i had him july 16, 2012 and bled for 6wks after then had my first real cycle october 4th now it is nov. 16th and i have not yet had another cycle..could i be pregnant? we want another one so are not using birth control.. i took urine cheap pregnancy test but they all show negative result, went to the doctor and she did a urine test and it showed negative so she sent off blood work ...what do you think? my son has not been breastfed since early september i would say...

Its honestly hard to say either way because some womens cycles take a while to get back to a normal after delivery...The blood test should give you a clear answer though.

It's very common after you have a baby for periods to be irregular for some time. I'd wait for the blood test.

I agree with the above posters, and then since you breastfed, even for that short time, it could have messed up your cycle as well.
