  • It makes me annoyed when I see questions like this. It's really quite simple:

    Pregnancy+blood=call doctor asap. Not post a Cafemom question first while something bad could be happening. I understand that girls get worried but honestly it's in the best interest of you and your child to call an actual doctor.

  • She may just be asking, ours...perhaps she doesn't know yet that she's pregnant and is wondering if she should take a test!

    Apparently, some people still get periods while they're pregnant, but you should talk to your doctor about any bleeding you have while carrying a child. Good luck! :)

  • That's true I didn't even think of that. Well if you're not sure yet then it's still a possibility. I had a light period for a few days while I was pregnant. They thought I miscarried but everything turned out fine.

  • Yes I don't know for sure if I'm pregnant. This has just happened all at once.

  • but why do u think you are pregnant if you had a period.

    Answer by Jackie0216 at 3:46 PM on Nov. 11, 2008

  • I feel just like I did with my first baby. I had my first baby 4 months ago. My periods are still messed up too. I also heard you are most fertile after you have a baby. I don't THINK i'm pregnant I am just suspicious whether I am or not. I was going to take a test then I got a period so I was just asking this question to see if I still needed to take one.
