If you just had a baby 2 months ago and you take a pregnancy test will that show the pregnancy hormone for the last pregnancy?

The hormone HCG decreases during your 3rd trimester and is fairly low by the time you give birth (This is part of what starts labor). By 2 months after birth, the hormone has completely left your system. So....a positive test at this time would indicate that you are pregnant again. There has been known to be false positives, so get a blood test to be sure. And if this is what you want, may I say congratulations!
