Had PP bleeding for 4 1/2 weeks and had unprotected sex. Pregnant?

I gave birth to my baby girl on 12/12/12 and had PP bleeding for 4 1/2 weeks. My days are all mushed together so I can't recall each day I had sex but I know I can count on my hand how many times I had sex. I recall on Jan. 18th having sex and my boyfriend came in me and I began spotting the next day and up until I started the Mini Pill on Jan. 28th then the spotting stopped so then I had sex again that night and my boyfriend came in me. I bled A LOT on the pill so I stopped it a week later and the bleeding stopped. Now a week after Jan. 18th I've been feeling super nauseous everyday but thought nothing of it until my family doctor said she believes I'm pregnant. So I took a pregnancy test today and I believe I saw a faint line but maybe I was staring too hard. I also pump out breast milk and bottle feed my baby. I just want to know if I am pregnant did I test too early?

It's possible that you are pregnant. Wait a couple of days and retest first thing in the morning when the level of hcg, if present, will be at its highest.

Ok I will, I'm not sure if it was negative or not but is there such thing as a false negative only 2 months of giving birth?

If you take a teat too early you can get a false negative. The soonest I have been able to get a positive result is 10 days after conception.

Ok so what day should I retest and if I get a negative what should I do? I think I'm pregnant due to my nausea because with my first pregnancy I got really nauseous at 7-8 weeks and I found out I was pregnant at 6 weeks and each morning I felt like I got hit by a bus!

You would only be about 6 weeks along at the most, so it might be a little early to be experiencing symptoms. You should also know that it is normal to experience weird symptoms after giving birth. It takes quite a while for your hormones to get back to their normal levels, especially if you are breastfeeding and/or taking any kind of birth control. Wait a couple of days and take another test. If it comes back negative, you can go to your doctor for a blood test.
