pregnant AGAIN??! 7 weeks post partum!
So hubby and i got caught in the moment at 3 weeks pp. Unprotected sex and he did not pull out. At 5 weeks pp was feeling off took 2 tests using first morning urine both were negative. Another week goes by, still feeling off took another test. Super faint positive. Assumed it was left over hormones or faulty test. 2 days later- negative after drinking 2 big cups of water. After 2 more days i decided to take a digital expecting to see a negative but just to double check before i drank this weekend. 3 minutes later...it says YES+.


Am i pregnant again?! If i had 2 negatives at 5 weeks post partum that means hormones were completely out of my system right? Which would make this a new pregnancy?? Should i abstain from drinking?

Please dont lecture me on how i was supposed to wait 6 weeks i am freaking out stressed enough and i KNOW i was supposed to wait i just got caught in the moment. I have to reschedule my 6 week check up (was supposed to be yesterday but couldnt make it) so i am looking for suggestions.

Yeah, it's more than likely a new pregnancy. Having had negatives means that the hcg is out of your system or at very low levels not detectable by a hpt. Many women show up to their six week post partum check up pregnant. I've had a few friends that this happened to. Congrats, mama!

So when i reschedule my appointment, should i tell them i had a positive pregnancy test already? Or just wait until i go in? I never had a first pp period so i have no clue how far along i could be because after that first time we did it 3 more times (protected and on bc)

Lanis of course we will keep it. While it was totally unplanned, life happened so all i can do is deal with it. I will then have 3 kids under 3. I have a toddler who turns 2 the 26th. Newborn will be 7 weeks on tuesday. :/

When you go to the doctor don't say anything , wait for them to confirm it . Hopefully your body is strong enough & ready for another baby so soon

Lanis they will not automatically do a pregnancy test because they prescribed bc right before i left the hospital. So i have to ask them to test me which will be awkward whereas i dont believe it will be AS awkward if i disclose it when i reschedule and they may schedule an ultrasound to give me a due date. Ultrasounds have to be scheduled in advance

You could also call and leave the nurse a message and tell her what's going on. They will be able to get you in sooner and give you any information you might need.

You need to tell your doctor because it can be dangerous for your body. And you have a higher risk of miss carriage. Stop taking birth control right away and make a doc app asap

Omg your bloke pulling out isn't going to stop you getting pregnant you no only birth control and condoms are going to be able to stop you getting pregnant and if you just had a baby this should have been explained to you

Babycoco- he did not pullout the one time it was unprotected. But i know it is possible to get pregnant regardless of what form of birth control i use.

I. Will be calling monday for an appt and possibly going to ER this weekend, as i just had blood streaks in cervical mucus and am cramping but believe i had implantation bleeding about 3 weeks ago.
