  • I had a 5 day cycle the first month pregnant with my DD and my DS. My OB from my DD told me there was no way, I do Natural Family Planning so I know my dates were right. Test.

  • Some women have implantation bleeding. Some women have bleeding during pregnancy. The bleeding can be so regular that it seems like a period.

    But a "period" is related to hormones and uterine shedding. Women who have had their "period" during pregnancy have not had a menstrual cycle.

  • I had some light bleeding during the first month of pregnancy with my son. It wasn't the same as a normal period, that's what got me thinking I was pregnant.. sure enough, I was! I would test if I were you.
