I need some reassurance - think I may be pregnant 4 months postpartum!

I gave birth DS (first baby) 4 months ago. Me and my partner decided to use condoms when I'm within my fertile window (based off OPKs and multiple cycle tracking apps I used to conceive originally) and pull out when I'm not.

I am currently 5DPO (too early to take a test) but have experienced the exact same symptoms as my first pregnancy (cramps, pinching pains, slight breast tenderness etc) for the last couple of days. I'm aware it could be nothing as I'm still 'recovering' from first birth less than 6 months ago.

It means my babies would be 13 months apart, I really need some reassurance from people who've been in a similar position - babies close together? Similar time between pregnancies?

Just some motivation that if I were pregnant I would be able to cope and not pull my eyeballs out due to stress! Sad

@lucy2204 thanks for your reply! Aww that's reassuring that you love the gap between them ❤️ I just worry with how tiring it can be with 1, nevermind 2 babies 😂 either way I know it wouldn't be possible if it weren't doable! Thanks again. I'll update this post next week when I should be able to tAke a test xxx

I fell pregnant when dd1 was 10 weeks old. Ds1 was born 2 weeks before dd turned 1. It really wasn't much harder than having one baby to be honest, I found a 2 year gap much harder to manage than these two being close together
