Actually It Is I've Heard About It. And My B/f's Cousin Was Pregnant And Had Her Period She Didnt Know Shw Was Prego For Months! I Would See A Doctor About It Though, You Need Prenatal Checks Anyways...LET THEM KNOW WHATS GOING ON BECAUSE It Might NoT Be A Period But Something Wrong W/ The Pregnancy So Just Get It Checked Out, Did You Take A Pregnancy Test? Good Luck

From what I know, you don't actually have "real" periods during pregnancy, but you may bleed and it may look like a period. Because, as most know, bleeding during pregnancy can often signal that the pregnancy is not viable and that a miscarriage is happening.

Is this your first cycle after you knew you were pregnant, or have you been pregnant for a few months, did not bleed and just started bleeding all of a sudden? If you know for sure that you are pregnant and you are still bleeding, then I think it would be in your best interests to see a doctor or go to a women's clinic because if you are having a miscarriage, you will need medical attention so it can be dealt with properly to avoid infection.

Some women bleed harmlessly, some not so much. Are you sure you're pregnant (i.e. had a test done), or are you just guessing because you might feel a little different?

I am kinda new to this site but I do have experience to a certain extent when it comes to bleeding while your pregnant. About a year ago I was 2 weeks pregnant and I started to bleed. I went to the doctors everyday for a week straight while they did all sorts of tests (blood, pelvic exams and ultra sounds). They kept telling me that it can be normal to bleed during pregnancy and at the time everything looked to be ok. By the time I was 3 weeks pregnant they found out that I had an ectopic pregnancy (tubal). I actually had to go through surgery to get the pregnancy removed because it was too large to pass through my tubes with the shot. Just a thought...might want to mention your symptoms to your doctor and they will probably want to do tests to eliminate that possiblity. Good Luck sweetie!
