  • Maybe..hard to say. Pregnancies start different for all women. If you are super curious you can take a test now- or wait until your period is due and if its late test then.

  • I'd say you are pregnant. Only one way to tell, get a test. Shorter, lighter period is always a sign, and all the other signs seem pretty clear. Good luck!

  • youngmommyy2be if a short period were a sign of possibly being pregnant I would be a mom to hundreds of kids.LOL My periods last from 2 to 4 days thank God. Anonymous if you want to absolutely sure, do a test. Some of the feelings you have may be a sign of pregnancy or stress because you think you're pregnant. Stress can make you feel the same way.

  • having shorter, lighter periods is NOT a sign of pregnancy. LMAO its possible but for most women one of THE signs is no period at all. I would wait a few days & see what happens before wasting money on a test.

  • In response to the one that said that a lighter irregular period is not a sure sign of pregnancy should ask a few people first.  When my sis in law was preg. she had a short light period about a week and a half after her regular period, and then when I was preg. I had a short light period about a week and a half after my regular period .  Thats how my hubby knew I was pregnant.
