Is it possible to get pregnant so soon after giving birth?

So, I am almost six weeks postpartum with baby number one. And, I had a “crazy” night with the hubs (much needed time with friends and some alcohol while baby stayed at grandparents and we are formula feeding) and we had unprotected sex. Has anyone ever gotten pregnant again this soon after giving birth? I had a c section. I’m terrified to go to my six-week appointment and get news I’m not ready for. We’ll be a happy family of 4 if we have to be; I just don’t want it to be this soon. It was a temporary lapse in judgment, and believe me when I say it won’t happen again. I just don’t know the odds of getting pregnant again so soon. Anyone care to share their experiences?

Very good… you’re very fertile right after birth… maybe take a plan b if it’s not too late

She should’ve waited bc if she is pregnant she’s might loose it . Not to mention the extreme risk of a deadly infection .

Yes, I got the news at my 12 week check up

After having a c section my dr don’t recommend getting pregnant again for at LEAST 6 months but she recommends a year. Ur uterus was cut and stuff ur all stiches inside u need to heal inside. I would ask ur dr if u can take a plan B or let ur dr know what happened. I have a friend that got pregnant like that she ended up almost dying and had to get a emergency hysterectomy because she just had c section.

Super likely. Your more fertile after giving birth. Your doctor should have explained that to you if you didn’t know already.
