Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms (abnormal and shorter periods, morning sickness, nausea, vomiting, and weight gain) suggest that you are pregnant. Look out for other symptoms suggesting pregnancy like: sore breasts, headache, nausea, increased fatigue, tiredness, sleepiness and hunger, mood swings, constipation, increased frequency of urine, and lower abdominal cramps.
Some women tend to have period like bleeding at the scheduled period time during the first 3 months of their pregnancy. This happens due to the uterus still not being completely filled with the baby in the first 12 weeks time and there is normal endometrium (part of endometrial lining not involved in building placenta) still available to bleed during period time. After 12 weeks the baby fills the entire uterus so, there is no space for the normal decidua/endometrium to be shed.
In case you do not get your period this time also properly, then visit your gynecologist/healthcare provider and get a blood beta HCG level and an ultrasound scan done to confirm your pregnancy.
