How soon is too soon to get pregnant after giving birth?
I got a panicked phone call from a good highschool friend that I have stayed in contact with over the years. She just found out from her doctor that she is pregnant again, and she just had her baby 2 weeks ago.
Now I know every women is different and heals differently but I know sex was the last thing on my mind for the first month after giving birth both times with my babies. So 2 weeks I was thinking about telling her to get a second opinion but this was her 3rd test from her OBGYN so they are pretty sure she is pregnant again.
From what her doctor said that the biggest issue with getting pregnant early is that since her body has had very little opportunity to heal and could possibly lead to possible infections and even a miscarriage.
I hope for her sake everything turns out well.Now from what my doctor told me is that 6 weeks is the best time to wait before having sex. My mom told me to wait 2 years before having another baby so my body goes completely back to normal (I almost made it as my kids are a year apart...like my mom had anything to talk about as my sister and I are a year apart :P
I would love to get your input, how soon is too soon to get pregnant after giving birth?
We haven't used contraceptives since our first child and the closest our children have been is 14.5 months apart. Nursing and miscarriages have spaced most of our children nearly two years apart, some a little longer.
I would say your friend should take it easy this time around. Not work and not do things that are stressful. :)
