Ok, before you totally flip out, are you breastfeeding? It's only been 4 months since you had the baby, so it wouldn't be unheard of for your cycles to still be a little off, especially if you're breastfeeding-but even if you're not. If you were due the 12th, you're officially late, so a pregnancy test would more than likely show up by now. I'd test if I were you.

Don't worry about how you'd handle 3 kids until you know if you're pregnant or not. Yes, it's hard now, but by the time a baby you're pregnant with now would be born, you'll have a 3 year old, and a 1 year old,...and that's a BIG difference from 2 and 4 months.

If you had unprotected sex last week and you are due for af this week that dosnt line up right with ovulation since most woman have a 12 day or longer luteal phase(the time between Ovulation and your period).

But if you are bfing that knockes everything out of sink and you may or may not have been fertile last week. At any rate you wont be able to test till around 2 weeks past the time you had unprotected sex.

My own post partum periods were alllllll over the place & made me so nervous some months! I'd have a perfectly normal cycle, AF would show up right on time, then the next cycle would be like 52 days long! PP periods can by crazy (*especially* it you're breastfeeding), that could very well be why your AF is "late". But like a PP said, you can test about 12-16 or so days after you had sex & if you are pg, it should show up on a test by then. I hope everything works out!
