  • Yep...but I think they call it implantation bleeding....well depending on where you are in your pregnancy.

  • No. Not a menstrual cycle- but early pregnancy bleeding is quite common, and some women mistake implantation bleeding as their cycle.

  • My sil had 2 when she was pregnant but it was lighter than normal but I don't know if it can be just as heavy or not!

  • i've heard of spotting while pregnant but not a full on period... but from the other answers it sounds like some people have experienced this so... you never know i guess... i agree it wouldn't be the same as a menstrual cycle

  • It's not a menstrual period but it is a bleeding from the lining. implantation bleeding is not quite as much. It is just a way of the uterus contracting while the body is getting used to being filled with a baby. Some women expect that bleeding all the whole nine months otheres just on the first trimester. Do not be alarm it is ok unless you have clots or hard bleeding.
