I agree. Thanks for clearing that up though. I know that I have stated that I know women who have bled durng their pregnancy, but not that they had their period. It would be impossible, like you stated. Good info though!
I don't know period or not. I have a three year old son. I had a full out looked like a period with him with clots. I had it right on time. Went to the hospital week later for pains in belly because i got car accident. Everything was fine but they told me I was six week pregnant I said I had my period last week real period I had clots they said happends sometimes. And checked the baby and was fine.
JoyRenee - Maybe your bleeding was really just that. . . early pregnancy bleeding. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it was. :-D
Had it as well. Right on time. For three months with first son. He turned 25 last week. I always had a very heavy period growing up. These periods were the same. Like you say, Alaysha, they may not technically be called periods, but when you have 5 - 7 days of change a pad every 2 hours bleeding with clots exactly 28 days apart for 3 months, I dont think it is just early pregnancy bleeding as that would seemingly be sporadic. I think the hormonal thing in the article is what caught my eye. Maybe your body is just used to shedding at that time and keeps doing so, yet the fetus is implanted tightly and does not wash away. I dunno, but I had it. Personally. Me. And I am old. And I did NOT have it with #2. Well, the first month or 2 but it was less, although on time.
Just another opinion....
Yeah my sister is going through it right now! pretty much just like grammy64 said.
my aunt had her period through all 4 of her pregnancies. clots, blood, a normal period. she had it the same time every month as before she was pregnant. not every woman has the same pregnancy. so unless the doctors in the article have tracked every single woman on the face of the earth.....i'm going to believe my aunt and her doctors about her periods.
