Is it possible that you still get your period as normal, but could be pregnant?
Just wondering as some women don't even know they are pregnant until 5 or 6 months into their pregnancy

JW, it is possible to have a period even when your pregnant. It usually is much lighter than normal, but it comes at the expected time. That said, it seldom happens up to the sixth month of pregnancy. Good luck.
