Some women have been known to continue ovulating while pregnant. In those cases, they will have a period every month and in some very rare cases have gotten pregnant AGAIN. Other women do not ovulate, but their body doesn't recognize the pregnancy hormones correctly or they have other abnormalities that lead to true periods. Then there are things like subchorionic hematomas (bleeding under the placenta), placenta previa (placenta implants too low) and other medical conditions that can cause bleeding, which may require bedrest and other interventions but don't necessarily threaten the life of the baby with careful monitoring. Bleeding can also be a sign of pending miscarriage, implantation bleeding, tearing from sexual intercourse, or other more benign things. If you are pregnant and are experiencing bleeding, please consult your doctor and do some research before consenting to any abortive procedures.
