Anyone have experience with getting pregnant and having your period?

    I think I may be pregnant even tho I am on my period. I have had two bouts of nausea in the past 3 days, once in the middle of the night where I woke up and had to run to the bathroom because my bed felt like a boat in troubled waters! Last night I couldn't eat more then a few bites due to being both hungry but nauseous. I am also on one heck of an emotional roller coaster today, mostly on the crying side of emotions tho I can keep a lid on it while at work. I haven't tried a pregnancy test because I am not sure how well they work if you are on your period and think it wise to wait till that is over. If I am not pregnant all I can say is something is seriously wrong with me! yikes lol sad roll big_smile hmm

      I don't think you are pregnant, you are just pregnant with so many ideas. Nah, if it is your wish to become pregnant, and you are indeed preggers, I am happy for you Kirsten. It is rare case when one gets their period even though their pregnant, but it happens. It never happened to me though.

        I have spent the last 3-4 years trying so.... big_smile

        I did spend the first 2 and a half years trying to get the birth control I had been on out of my system. I spent about a decade on the birth control injection depo provera that suppressed my periods by tricking my body into thinking it was already pregnant and thus I wouldn't ovulate or have a normal cycle. They said it could take up to a year to reverse, took over 2! I have finally gotten back to a normal cycle last spring/summer.

          You could be pregnant kirsten, am excited for you, test after your period, or you could still check now. Is it heavy period?? Are you sure it is not vaginal bleeding (I don't want to scare you vaginal bleeding like miscarriage), when was your last period? Go to an ob gyn, kirsten.

            I had 3 heavy days but its tailing off now, hopefully I should be over it and ready to take the test this weekend smile

            I do really hope this is it cause I was worried about the difficulty with the depo shot suppressing my cycle, also read in some cases that women coming off it were thrown into very early menopause yikes

              Is that your normal period, 3 heavy days like that? Update us about your test then and hope you still get what you want, for the meantime I know you are not worrying about it.

                3-5 days is normal for me, was normal before the injections too so I do think its safe to say  my periods are finally normal, so in theory I should be more then able to be with child.

                I will be posting belly pics and everything else that annoys eveyone not pregnant! lol tongue big_smile

      Kristen,

      My wife had the same issues that you are talking about with one of her pregnancies.  I recommend that you see your Ob.  I will also say that if you take a home pregnancy test then most Obstetrician's will go with what the home test says.  They are very accurate.  Good luck and congrats if you are pregnant.

    It happened to me, Kirsten. I was trying for my second baby and fell pregnant. Went through a horrible week when I, at 8 weeks pregnant, thought I had had a miscarriage and lost the baby - so did the doctor. However, eventually I had a scan and the baby was still there, absolutely fine, and I was a month further on than I thought. Therefore, I must have had a perfectly normal period during my first month of pregnancy.

    Some women do have bleeding during pregnancy, although it's not an actual period, it could be implantation bleeding (that is usually shorter and lighter than a normal period). I have been pregnant four times and I did have some spotting with one baby. It is possible that you could be pregnant. Nausea was my first pregnancy symptom, some people believe you don't feel symptoms very early, however, I felt nauseous very early on. I think I was around 3-4 weeks pregnant and just knew that I was before even taking the test. I wish you the best and hopefully you get a positive pregnancy test! If not, I wish you luck on trying and hope it works out for you soon.

    It's a common misconception that if a woman has sex during her period she cannot become pregnant. While a woman is unlikely to get pregnant during her period, it is absolutely possible.

    Well, a woman can actually get pregnant on her period, though it's a rare case. But if you're really pregnant that makes you so unique! smile
