Ohhhhh hun it is soooo possible that you could be pregnant! I have fallen pregnant twice when breast feeding - both times my baby was only 4 months old when i conceived!

The first time i just happen to take a test because my period never returned and the second time (after having 3 children) i felt crampy and a bit sick and felt that the pregnancy feeling never really went away.

I now find myself in an akward situation, as a little while ago whilst on the pill and not trying, i started bleeding heavily so went to A&E only to discover that i was pregnant! My hubby did not want the baby at all but it was problem after problem from the hospital thinking i had miscarried to thinking it was ectopic and then saying it was molar. In the end what ever it was it was not a healthy pregnancy as i had a MMC 5 weeks ago. We moved house a little while ago and so i dont currently have a GP (to give me a higher strength pill) and i found out last night that i am pregnant again! I am so confused as i havnt even had a period yet, have still been using the mini pill , only lost a baby 5 weeks ago and hubby wouldnt want it. I havnt told him yet as i need time to think but my advice to you is definitly take a test as anything is possible and its better than you know either way for sure.

Good luck and i hope you get which ever outcome you were hoping for.x.x

dozey i had really sensitive nips, and general irritation with bf blush but this may have been bit later. I did have implantation bleeding but don't know if that had anything to do with bf.

Less sickness is common, but again, later.

If you are pg i'd recommend "adventures in tandem nursing" from the lll site.

And joining us on the "bf and pg" thread on bf/ff. grin

NLD, you poor poor thing. That is an awfull situation for you. I really hope it all works out for you.

NLD my heart goes out to you, I hope everything goes ok whatever it may be. Maybe sit down with your husband, tell him everything you feel. and hopefully things will sort out. he needs to respect how you'e feeling at this moment in time too.

moonface Maybe i will be joining that thread within the next month?!

Who knows, if i am then it would be amazing, then if not - its no problem.

Just wondered how breastfeeding effects the true nature of pg symptoms (sensitive boobs etc)

i think people experience it differently. Less sickness is common though not guaranteed. My boobs weren't sore but my nips were. As with any pg everyone's symptoms are different. Good luck. smile
