My grandmother told me that she had a regular period each month until her 5th month of pregnancy. Is that possible?

In brief: Most believe not

Pregnancy is usually manifest by absence of menses.
It is just the way the hormonal system works. There have been reports of women having some menses but it is usually incompatible with the pregnant state. Let the story be the story and accept it for what it is but modern science will say different.
