odds stacked heavily against me , right?

hey guys...I am not TTC but I did not know where i should post this. I would love some advice from the experts!!!!
My baby is EBF (some solids daily , but not in replace of nursing)...she doesn't sleep through the night , although , most days she will have a 5 or 6 hour stretch of sleep. She is 7 months old.
Last Sat , DH and I DTD unprotected! oooops! (caught up in the moment). He came inside.
I have not had AF yet...and really don't show signs of it...although , the past few months , i have had some EWCM and cramps that feel as though a period is coming , but it never does. Perhaps my body is just "gearing up"?
Anyways.....what would the odds be of sperm getting an eggy after just one night of heated passion? No AF since the it would be a "freaky occurance" , right?
Would Y'all worry if you were me.? (we have 4 kiddo's and really don't want another....although , it wouldn't be the end of the world)

Your help would be awesome.
Thanks ladies!

I think you should be fine. Test in a couple of weeks, if you want, but I would guess that you are ok!

I agree with Jana. I think you're ok too. It's really rare to get preg before AF returns while EBF. It's possible, but rare. I know how you feel though. I used to get really nervous with unprotected sex when my DD was still under 1 and EBF. I didn't have a PPAF until around 10-11 months PP. I took a few tests just to make sure, but they were always neg.

I would give it 3 weeks and then test. You'd have a correct result by then, for sure. Sperm can live for 5 days in a perfect environment, so 3 weeks would be plenty of time for accuracy. I think you'll be safe though.
