Okay ladies... here's the big QUESTION??!

After you have a baby I have heard a rumor that you are more fertile and your chances of getting pregnant again are increased... is this true?

Me and the BD just had sex recently... and didn't use protection... ugh :roll: yeah yeah I know smooth move. NOT. Of course he pulled out... but that is how my little Gabriel was born! But anyhoo... just wondering if anyone had heard this rumor before as well... and if it is true... anyone know of someone who got pregnant that quick right after giving birth without trying to? I'm kinda freaking out a little bit...



THANKS MAMAS! :)

Yeah, you're most fertile the first couple weeks after birth.

I've heard it too but can never find any sources to back it up.

My doctor told me that you are more fertile the first year after giving birth but mainly in the first few months.

Is it too late for a plan B?

yes you are more likely to get pregnant right after u have the baby...an plus your body is use to holding a baby so your body will be more likely to except the pregnancy...

My friend and her brother are 10 months apart... yeah they're proof. Go to your doctor and take a test if you're worried.

It is true. My cousin thought it was less fertile and now she has 2 kids 13 months apart.
