Is it possible to get pregnant if you are breastfeeding?

I’ve been trying to have baby number 2, but I can’t get pregnant. My son is 14 months and I just now stopped breastfeeding him.

    I got pregnant with baby number 2 while BREASTFEEDING my 12 months old baby and we weren't trying. It was unplanned

    OmG yes and it’s possible to get pregnant and even if you don’t get your period bc of breastfeeding too I’m on number five bc of this 😱 I also was on birth control religiously so definitely possible. I’m now 20 weeks pregnant 🤰🏻

    Without a period too? Omg my biggest fear. Kids are a bless but they are so much work and money. Best of luck! You are a strong woman

    Oh yes Lily I didn’t even find out until 14 weeks and thought the dr was messing w me. I thought I had Lyme disease I was so tired and nauseous and LAST thing I thought was that I was PREGNANT 🤰🏻 it is always possible even on birth control. I was even making sure I wasn’t ovulating before we had any sex. Even only have sex once every few months so this is definitely GODS plan not mine lol. I’m living proof it’s very possible. I only have ONE Fallopian tube too with severe endometriosis. I’m an anomaly lol 😂

    You can but in some women it’s harder to conceive while breastfeeding. I’d take ovulation tests and get a better idea of your cycle. Give it a few months for your body to process all the changes.

    Most definitely 👌 We have a 9 month old breastfeeding on demand and just found out I’m pregnant.

    I wouldn’t get discouraged. Sometimes it does effect hormones and other things and can make it harder for some women. It’s not impossible. But again it depends on who. Just track your cycle as best as you can. And don’t stress.
