Breastfeeding - period coming or pregnant?

Postby Chloe84 » Sun Sep 10, 2017 7:24 am

Hi ladies,
Could do with some words of wisdom.
I have a little boy 4 months old and I'm BF him, not exclusively but 90% of the time.

For the past few days I've been experiencing nausea, changes in my breast, stomach cramps, cravings, been very hormonal etc.

Here's the weird thing. Hubby and I use condoms and although he comes naked in me first (sorry tmi!!) we always go equipped for the final showdown lol!! So surely I can't be pregnant?

What do you think, is my period coming or am I unexpectedly pregnant????

If you are experiencing actual pregnancy symptoms than you should be able to get a positive on a pregnancy test. After both of my pregnancies I ovulated before my period returned. Condoms are only effective like 82% of the time. I was only 5 weeks postpartum when I got pregnant with baby number 2. It's hard, but I love having them so close and am hopeful that they will be best friends. So if you are already pregnant again it's a blessing.
