Could I be pregnant......again?
I have a 4 month old baby and am still breastfeeding. I missed my period so I did a home pregnancy test, which came out positive. Could I really be pregnant or could the test come out positive because of certain hormones since I'm still breastfeeding?

It sounds like you are pregnant. There would not be hormones to interfere with the test this long after your pregnancy.
