Risk is very small: A combination of persistent on-demand around the clock breastfeeding and injection of 150 mg of Depo-Provera every 12 to 14 weeks is a very effective way of preventing pregnancy and your risk would seem very small. (1 to 2 % perhaps) but not zero. A blood betaHCG test would provide you reassurance and peace of mind. Be safe; check.
