Is it possible to get a period and still be pregnant?  I had a miscarriage back in April.  (Chemical Pregnancy)  I got a period on 5/12 and again on 6/6/09.  My periods are not heavy and they only last about 2 to 3 days.  My period has ended but I still feel bloated/crampy feeling you get right before your period.

By definition, it is not possible to have a period and be pregnant. But it is possible to have bleeding during pregnancy.

My periods used to last 2-3 days. Any flow that lasts 2-7 days is considered normal. Because you just had a miscarriage, your hormone levels need to readjust themselves and it may take time for your body to regulate.

The bloating and crampiness you feel could mean that you are about to ovulate.

is it possible that the period I had was implantation bleeding.  Because the period after my miscarriage was normal.  is it possible to ovulate 2 days after a period?

Thanks so much

It is possible to ovulate during a period, so I'm sure it's possible to ovulate 2 days after a period ends as well. If you think you experienced implantation bleeding then you could take a pregnancy test within a 3-7 days.
