Any ideas what it might be???
If there is a confirmed pregnancy then may be you are one of the few women who continue to have cyclical bleeding at the time of periods even if they are pregnant. However, if there is a doubt, please take a pregnancy test and see. Also, since you are 8 weeks pregnant, it is important to get an ultrasound through the vaginal route to see if the baby is fine or not. Please consult a gynecologist regarding this. Take care!
