    I would say pretty high hun. xx It did take my period nearly 3 months to return PP though so if u dont get it for a while doesnt mean ur pregnant. Maybe do a test in a couple of weeks?

    I know the first 2 weeks are extremely high as the MW said to me dont have sex till after that time period.

    Just have to wait and see i guess. eeeekkk!

    Uh oh! Guess i should talk to OH and see what he wants to do. Part of me just wants to leave it to chance... We want them v close together anyway but then another part thinks omg they would be less than a yr apart lol.

    If you are exclusively breastfeeding on demand day and night then your chances of being pregnant are pretty low.

    If you are formula feeding then chances are your fertility is on its way back. Especially if it was you that initiated the sex cos you where in the mood as ovulation often gives you increased horniness!

    I think there's defo a good chance of getting pregnant then. If you did conceive yesterday your EDD would be 24th October.

    OMG ducky... haha! crazy thought that a december dreamer would be pregnant again so quickly, although i myself feel like doing it all again tomorrow. ;) i just had way too good of a birth experience & with this very content & happy baby i was blessed with, it seems like another one wouldn't be a challenge either...

    had my period back 28 days after birth despite just feeding breastmilk (guess exclusively pumping makes the difference), so i know for sure it would be possible. i would say it's a very good thing i'm single... :blush:

    good luck to you either way & i guess if you want your babies close together, it wouldn't be a bad thing if it did happen ;) just crazy :haha:

    We have spoken about it and although we would both LOVE a second baby, it doesn't really make sense just yet. We want to get married within the next year and I'd quite like to be married and then start trying on our honeymoon. So I'm going to the doctors tomorrow to get the morning after pill and the pill.
