It is possible to get a period while you are preganant.  I had one at 12 weeks.  But if you are pregnant and you have ANY bleeding especially bright red blood, go to your Doctor or the ER immediately!  I had to have three internal ultrasounds to discover that I was indeed having a period.  I have a unique condition (bicornuate uterus) where my uterus is almost completely split in half and the "unpregnant side" had a period.

Good luck!

dont be "worried"/concerned until you actually get it (if you get it). you said it FEELS like its coming. i experienced the same thing when i was pregnant very early on. i had, cramps and everything else that goes along with having my period but it never came. woman have gotten a period while pregnant but from what i understand, its pretty rare.

4 weeks, huh?  You and I are in the exact same boat.  I'm 4 weeks preg.  (gestationally 2.5 weeks).  Anyway, I know what you mean by "feeling" your AF is around the corner.  Cramps, discharge, moodiness, but don't worry.  It is normal, remember, pregnancy symptoms go hand-in-hand with PMS symptoms.  We're just fine.  Unless you are discharging blood like AF, I wouldn't worry about it.  If you are having your period, please go to the doctor to make sure it's not a m/c.  Congrats on your preg. and keep me updated.

Does it help to eat anything?  I've been told to eat saltines or some other bland type food to calm your stomach.  Are you sure it's not gas pains, pregnancy can cause you to have an increase in gas bubbles, which is what I'm going through today.  Also, constipation is a factor too.  I would check with your doc. to see if you can take any sort of antacid like tums or pepto-bismal.  It is safe to take tylenol during pregnancy, and if these pains are due to cramping of some sort, it might help.  Tylenol always helped me during AF cramps.  I hope this helps.  How are you feeling today?

Hi,
I am 18, and i am currently on my period. However, it hasnt been normal. Very light... but its  been very dark. I normally do not have pms, but have terrible cramps. This time however, i dont not have cramps, and Ive been EXTREMLEY emotional. i can see a commerical on TV and ball my eyes out... ill see a baby and his mommy on the street and ill cry. I kissed my boyfirend and i cried. It seems as though any time i see a baby i cry. is there something wrong with me? i cry over EVERYTHING!!!! and im no baby... what does this sound like to you?
