Hi there and welcome.  Many times hormones are off when we stop breast feeding and that very well could be going on.  However, if you have been having unptotected sex, then sure, you could be pregnant.  Simple answer, get a home pregnancy test.  Why worry about it, just take a test.  

It does seem like it often takes a bit of time for regualr cycles to take place so am guessing that is the reason----  however, do do do use protection if you don't desire another pregnancy right away.  And go get a test to make sure you aren't.  

I got pregnant when my first was about to be 7 months.  But we were older parents and wanted to get the show on the road, so were excited to learn of the pregnancy.  I now have boys 15 months apart in age.  

good luck
