Hey having periods when you are pregnant is not normal. I have heard it is a sign of abortion. Please get yourself checked. Do not delay.

Bleeding some times occurat menturation time for first few months in some pregnancy.
Take rest. If t is painful,fever then better consult Gynecologist to rule out miscarriage.

Technically if you are pregnant you cannot get your period but there are several reasons for spotting during pregnancy. Sometimes, early in pregnancy, a little bit of blood may be present during implantation but the amount is very small and will go away. It appears that some women spot during their pregnancy around the time that they would get their period. Sometimes spotting can be an indicator of a miscarriage. If you start spotting, try to stay calm and contact your doctor for a check up. If the bleeding is heavy and you are experience abdominal pain contact doctor immediately and/or go to emergency room.
