hehe, my friend found out she was 18 weeks pregnant and was still breastfeeding her 15(?) month old. Another friend of mine does extended breastfeeding and ended up with 3 kids under 21 months old (the second pregnancy was twins).

and then there's my friend who started trying immediately and didn't get pregnant until her child had been weaned for more than 6 months.

I don't trust breastfeeding as a birth control option. Of course, I want 1 more and didn't expect this one to come so easily, so definitely will be happy if my plans get foiled
