There is no way to know for sure. Pregnancy and how it effects a woman's body is very much an individual thing. But there is a good site that does give helpful info. I track my pregnancy on there weekly. It you look at the top,you can look at how a pregnancy progresses from when a woman ovulates all the way until delivery. And also talks about things that she could go through physically such as symptoms etc. There is also videos that you can watch about labor and birth,and even caring for a newborn. *-->---

most likely not, you are pregnant. The levels of pregnancy hormones leave your body right after giving birth, it takes a total of 6 weeks. If you are breast feeding the chances are still low, the hormones needed to maintain a pregnancy and create milk are separate. To be super sure get a blood pregnancy test, getting pregnant right after having a baby is close to a sure thing....good luck

Sows can vary but if you have been checking her bones regularly you may just be able to detect them starting to part 7-8 days before birth. The bones will stay wide open for the last 24-48 hours of pregnancy. If the sow has had a previous litter it can all happen fairly quickly. If it is a first time mum the bones seem to have been opening forever and she will keep you waiting!

i'm pretty sure it won't. cause i had my baby on may 13th, i thought i was pregnant within those 6 weeks after birth and it showed i wasn't. i was told by a few people and doctors also that it takes around 2 weeks for the hormones to fully get out of your system.

speaking as a person who was pregnant I can answer the reasons that I did not tell anyone. Yes I knew I was pregnant. Did I try to ignore it? yes I did. My reason (although I know how stupid they are now) was mainly fear. Fear my mother would disown me, fear my boyfriend would leave me, fear that my friends would no longer want to be around me. Fear that my older sister would kill me. Shame that I had let myself get this way. Fear that people at school would find out. I waited so long to tell an "adult" that a doctor would not see me as I was to far along and had not seen a doctor. The only doctor who would take me was the local health department. Now 17 years later and my daughter I gave birth to is now the age I was when she got pregnant. I make sure she is informed and aware of what can happen. I knew she had a steady b/f for a year, I took her down and had her put on birth control. Want to break the cycle.
