    Default Period-like bleeding, but still pregnant?

    Just wondering what the likelihood of having a period-like bleed and still being pregnant would be?

    Last cycle was really strange for me - I got my period on CD26 which is much, much earlier than usual (usually my cycles are 35-40 days), and it was a bit lighter than usual with no pain (unusual).

    I didn't think I could be pregnant so I just carried on, but over the last week I've been feeling queasy every morning, had the most vivid dreams, and been ridiculously tired. I think it's more than likely a food intolerance or something, but just out of interest's sake ... Has anyone ever had a 'period' and actually been pregnant?

    I don't want to run out and buy a test today because DH is home and I don't want to get his hopes up, when I'm 99.7% certain I'm just having one of those weeks.

    So, humor me. What are the chances?

    Yes!
    The exact same thing happened to me. I had a 'period' (or so i thought) but it was at a strange time in my cycle and much lighter - I just assumed my cycles were playing silly buggers and accepted it as an actual period.
    Fast forward a couple weeks and i was really not feeling 'right', i was waking up night really ill and kept thinking i was getting sick but then i was okay during the day Alarm bells rang so i took a test, thinking no way in hell could i actually be pregnant, and i was.
    Turns out i was about 4-5 weeks pregnant when i had my 'period'.

    My friend had a 'period' with two of her three pregnancies - lasted three or four days and was pretty heavy. Both girls were born perfectly healthy!
