    had a period during any of your pregnancies?

    I know they say technically you can't but we all know some women experience bleeding that's like a period and that's what I'm referring to.

    I'm just curious and EXTREMELY hopeful. I've had 2 periods since me and DH last BD'd, but now that my period is over I have backaches, knee aches, dull stomach cramping and a tightening in my chest.

    I've had odd dreams and my sister asked if I was pregnant, so that made me even more hopeful.

    Lurking...

    Honestly, I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. It is impossible to have a true period when pregnant but some bleeding can happen that people think is a period. However, red blood during pregnancy should always be looked at and is usually not a good sign.

    The only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test. Especially since "pregnancy symptoms" mean nothing without a positive pregnancy test. There are lots of other reasons why you may be having those symptoms.

    Good luck!

    I agree while not impossible, it is not likely, however I will tell you a little bit about my story. I was waiting to go on clomid back in Nov and started bleeding on Nov 1st.Then I stopped later that day. So they had me take a test and it was neg. Then I started again Nov 5th after office closed, and bled for a couple days fairly regularly. Again by the time I talked to the Dr it stopped. They ordered blood tests and preg was neg and hormones showed I should be starting any day. Well long story short that went on for 2 weeks. Then finally on Nov 16th after 4 neg blood tests and too many HPTs to count I had an ultrasound which showed my uterus was "too thick" and not shedding. Dr. said I needed a D&C. I begged for one more test because in my heart I just felt pregnant. Well, it came back at 1227. So I was pregnant and they put me on progesterone supplements to build the level up to pregnancy level and said that is why I was bleeding most likely. Then they wanted me back in 1 week to make sure they could see the sac. Well I went back on the 22nd only to have them find 2 sacs! TWINS! so I guess what I'm saying is while unlikely, it is possible and just don't give up if you feel it.
