In brief: No

However, you can bleed while you are pregnant.
It can be heavy and appear like a period, especially if you are having a miscarriage.

In brief: No

A period occurs when an egg fails to be fertilized causing shedding of the uterine lining.
This can not occur during pregnant. A pregnant woman can still bleed though. Any bleeding during pregnancy needs to be evaluated. About 50% of women have some bleeding in early pregnancy making it very common but not normal. Most are fine but sometimes bleeding can indicate a tubal pregnancy or miscarriage.
