    Anything is possible. I would definitely either take an over the counter pregnancy test or get to the doctor for a pregnancy test. Most women don't realize this, but we can pregnant ANY time of the month, ANY where in our cycle. It's just that there's a specific 'window' in that month when we're more likely to get pregnant.
    Best of luck to you........

    I have a question and don't really know how to write on here but my period was real light this time around, its usually heavy the first 3 days but it wasn't, it was light the first 2 days then a medium flow the 3rd and half of the 4th day and then it was extremely light the rest! And now I have cramping my lower back is uncomfortable and I'm having what feels like stretching in my abdomen! I felt like this with my first pregnancy but I'm not sure what's going on! Could I still be pregnant even though I had a period?
