Well, you can't have a period while pregnant, if you started your period, it's unlikely you're pregnant, if it's not normal length/flow for you, you can take a test, as it might be pregnancy related bleeding, but most of the symptoms you've said are symptoms of a period, and I'm pregnant and don't have an itchy belly or a sore navel, so I'm not sure about those! Good luck!

You can't have a period while pregnant, a period is when your uterus lining sheds to get rid of an unfertilized egg, when you get pregnant, it means your egg is fertilized, therefore the uterus doesn't need to shed the unfertilized egg, so you cannot have a period while pregnant, only pregnancy related bleeding.

soooooo i also did all this research on periods while pregnant..... my friend found out she was prego and the next day had really bad pain that i took her to the ER. ths Vaginal u/s showed that she was between 6 and 9 weeks. well she actually had her period a day early last month (in april) and nothing this month. so yes, even the doctor in the ER said its common for women to still get periods when pregnant!! when he said she might b nine weeks we looked at him all stupid because she just had a period the month before.

You should ask an OB, and I actually really hate discussing this, because this is coming from one of the top OB's in new york state, and MANY other OB's in the world. Google can you have a period while pregnant, and look up actual sites, not forums, like babycenter.

Can you get your period while you're pregnant?

No. You can't have your menstrual period while you're pregnant.

Some women do have vaginal bleeding during pregnancy. Some even report intermittent bleeding that seems like a regular period to them. But vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is not the same thing as menstruation.

What's the difference?

Menstruation only happens when you're not pregnant: Each month, your uterus grows a thick blood-rich lining in preparation for an egg to embed there. If you don't get pregnant that month, you shed this tissue and blood – that's your menstrual period.

But once an egg embeds in the uterine lining, hormones tell the blood-rich tissue to stay intact to support the growing baby. And you won't shed it and start having your period again until your pregnancy is over.

Then why do some women bleed during pregnancy?

Bleeding occurs during pregnancy for various reasons, some serious and some not.

Some women have light bleeding or spotting very early in pregnancy – around the time their period is due – and they may mistake that for a period. This so-called "implantation bleeding" may be caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the blood-rich lining of the uterus. It's generally a lot lighter than a typical period and lasts just a day or two.

You may have spotting after a Pap smear, vaginal exam, or sex. This is because there's more blood going to your cervix during pregnancy.

Bleeding can also be a sign of something seriously wrong, such as a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening. (See our article on vaginal bleeding in pregnancy for a complete rundown of possible causes.)

If you notice bleeding, call your doctor or midwife right away, even if the bleeding has stopped. Many women who bleed a little during pregnancy deliver without complications, but you may need an evaluation to rule out a serious problem.

If you're actively bleeding or have severe pain of any kind and can't immediately reach your practitioner, head straight to the emergency room.

It's impossible, to have a period, while pregnant.

Also, asking an ER doctor for information about pregnancy isn't recommended, they may know some things about pregnancy, but it's nothing in depth, if her doctor knew the ER doctor was telling her she could have a period, I'm sure he would correct the ER doctors information.
