Has anybody had their period and was pregnant?

I started spotting on Sunday, brownish discharge for a day, light red for a few hours, back to brown now nothing. It hasn't even been two days for my period. Just wanted to know if anybody had this happen to them. Please tell me your experiences! Thanks

  • I know it's technical, but you can't actually have a period while you're pregnant. Anyways, if it was Bright red, and you had cramping, ect, I would have gone to the hospital. But if it's brown, spotting, that is normal for some during pregnancy. Did you have sex before it started? Because that can also contribute.

  • I had what I considered a "period" for the first two months of my pregnancy, unknowing that I was pregnant. It was just as you described, about two days of light, brownish spotting. Take a test.

  • It's not an actual "period" but you can have regular bleeding throughout your pregnancy. It's just not a period cause you're not ovulating.

  • When I was six weeks pregnant I spotted for about 3 days. I got scared, because I have miscarried 3 times in the past. To my amazement everything was fine, and I am not expecting a little boy in February.
