I have heard that it's a possibility, that you can have period like bleeding even though you are pregnant. What other symptoms are you seeing?

Here's my experience with my first: I was 2 days "late" which was weird, because my periods were historically closer together, so having it start 2 days after when I expected it to was weird. But I had a light/medium flow for 1 day, then it stopped and started, spotting for the next 6-8 weeks. It took a whole week after I should have gotten my regular period for a pregnancy test to show positive (dh made me do 3 during that time, even though I though since I was spotting, I wasn't prego). Anyway, I don't know why it went like that. I had a healthy pregnancy. The nurse at my mw's office explained its actually pretty normal to have some sort of bleeding as long as it isn't heavy or bright red.

You read my mind!!

I had AF last month, fairly light but lasted 4 days. This month I started using OPK's at CD 9 and they were inconsistent, some dark some very light. I was meant to O yesterday (according to P Tracker on my phone which has been accurate for every month till now). I ALWAYS get tons of EWCM starting 4 days before O and this month, NOTHING! Just milky, and my cervix has been pretty soft and low since AF. WTH!!! How could it be low and soft! Why does it have to be so difficult?! Grrrrr, anyway, I don't think I'll be O'ing at all this month...

hello!! well, my mother in law had a period for 5 months while she was pregnant with my sister in law. but i dont know if it was a regular period or irregular...i never really asked her-and shes passed away so i cant ask her now. a friend of mine also had a 2 day period when she was pregnant with her 2nd child...but it was very light and she knew something was up. its quite possible. maybe call your doc and ask them?? good luck!!

One of my friends had period like bleeding, right on time with her regular cycle till she was 6 months pregnant. So yeah, its possible.

I had spotting on and off well into my second trimester and then more starting the week before I had my daughter.
