I can be pregnant if I already got my period?

To be able to really try to figure it out, the experts (not me!) would need more information, like: how long is your cycle?  How late was your period?  Exactly how are you feeling "weird"; ie, what kind of symptoms are you having?  How heavy is your period that you're having: it is very light, very heavy, etc?

And of course, you might want to take a pregnancy test just to be sure!

Hi, there!  I just wanted to let you know that a significant proportion of women (although I forget the exact numbers) get their period throughout or at certain points during their first trimester.  Thus, you may be pregnant regardless of getting your period, but, as suggested by another poster, consult a medical professional.

I tested negative the day I got my period.  But then I swear that I felt I was pregnant.  Two weeks later (and definitely not enough time to get pregnant in between), I tested positive.  Bad news is, it's been a nightmare from the start.  I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks, found a sac.  At 9 weeks, no fetal pole, no heartbeat.  Told I will miscarry, haven't yet.  So, it's definitely possible to have a period (even one that really does feel "normal" and not light) and be pregnant.  The question is, will it be a viable pregnancy.

Thanks for your comments to me too.  I'm telling you, waiting is one of the worst things.  I have an appointment this afternoon to see what the doctor says about my dropping hcg levels.  I'll keep everyone posted.

Something similar happened to me.  I tested negtive back on May 13 (dh bday thats why its easy to remember) the day after I was due for AF.  But I knew I was pegnant, I am never late, got a BFP 3 days later. Naturally m/c on 5/25. They estimated I was 6 weeks from LMP. This pregnancy I was due on 8/21 but I got my BFP on 8/18, now I am 20W 4D.

I just thought I'd update you a little. I got home around 7 tonight with several messages left from my dr.'s office asking me to call back. I did and here's the message that was left from my doctor. He is having difficulty getting me a referal to the ob-gyn of my choice and he thinks that I should go to emerg. So I'm like, "now?", and the secretary didn't know. So I have an appointment at 2:45 tomorrow with my doctor to find out what his stupid message meant, but I'm telling you, I am so pissed off at the message I don't know what to think!! Am I in an emergency situation? What's the rush? I really don't want to get a d&c without at least one more ultrasound and blood test AND second opinion because I'm feeling this office is so incompetent, I don't trust them (even the doctor).
Why can't my body just decide to miscarry for me, so I don't have to make the decision? You know, my u/s sort of indicates it stopped developing at 7w2d. I'm now 11w5d. How long does it take for my body to decide it's no longer pregnant? I just want to get on with it, and let my body heal.

And I'm soooooooo tired. How do people keep going on everyday, knowing but not really knowing that their pregnancy has taken a bad turn?

So I'm 18 and I had unprotected sex(boyfriend usually wears condom but didn't this time). He came inside me and we decided that I would take Plan B the next day. However, the next morning(about 6 hours later)  I got my period and I didn't take Plan B because I thought a period meant no pregnancy but I've learned that this is not necessarily the case. How likely is it that I'm pregnant???!?!?! Is it very unlikely for fertilization to occur the day before your period?? My period was the usual length, came on time.
