Pregnant before PPAF?? *Update*

How often does this really happen?? I know everyone says not to use breastfeeding as birth control because you can get pregnant without ever having a period, but honestly, how often does that really happen?

I ask because, well, um... I'm still breastfeeding, the baby is 11 months old today, I haven't had PPAF yet, but I'm having a few questionable symptoms and had a dream that I got a BFP. So now I'm wondering. Am I just goin' crazy?

And just for reference...we weren't using BF as BC and would be happy with another baby, just was expecting AF first. I mean, it took 2 years to get pregnant last time!

Scroll down for the results...

I think it depends on your body. I didn't get my ppaf until my dd was 12mo and I was down to nursing once a day. I have several friends, though, who got pregnant while still nursing and never had a period.

Yeah, I've heard a lot about it. I don't know that it's been any close personal friends, but second-hand stories and such. My Dr. liked to remind me when he did my 6 week pp check, LOL.
Have you tested? I would just test if you're at all concerned. Get one of those cheapo ones and try it. I've wasted many a pg test on negatives, so even if you aren't sure I'd do it anyway. Good luck!

I am sure it does happen often. My body usually gets one cycle--just one and then I get knocked up. Now POAS!!!

You all have to wait 'til tomorrow! I'm going to the store to get a test this afternoon and I'll test in the morning. OK?

My mom got pregnant that way, as did my aunt and cousin.

Darn. I was hoping it was one of those "urban legends". Guess I'll have to break down and buy a test.
