i'm not sure i understand you're question.  Are you saying that you're pregnant now and your bleeding alot or are you asking if pregnant women can have heavy periods?  If you're pregnant now, then you shouldn't be bleeding as much as you would for a normal period.  If you are, then call your doctor or go to a local emergency room.  Sometimes pregnant women can spot during the first trimester, but should not be bleeding heavily.  hope this helps.

I know you have been trying to get pregnant this month but if you are bleeding a heavy flow it sounds like an early period to me.

One thing that I would like to add and it isn't something pleasant so either way I think you need to go to your doctor or emergency center as soon as you can.  I used to always be very regular with my periods so on the first occasion that I got my period almost two weeks before I should have and like two weeks after I last had it, I worried and took a HPT straight away and it was a BFP but I had an ectopic pregnancy and if you don't get treatment quickly you could be in trouble, I hate to scare you but it's a scary situation if you don't get it seen to fast.

Then the time afterwards, I knew I was pregnant and got a heavy flow which landed up being a M/C.

That all been said, I have heard women to have periods right through their pregnancy but it is NEVER as heavy as your normal period.

If you think you might be pregnant, take a HPT and if it is BFP get help, either way call your doctor.

Just get advice from a professional.

Sorry sweetie and good luck.

You said in your previous post that AF was due on Tues or Wed, but showed up yesterday. That's a little early, but certainly not a cause for concern. I think I read in another post that your AF's are irregular, so my guess is that's all it is.
