I honestly don't know what to do right now I've still have been having light periods for the past three months and their not only light but their short my first period was 2days and a half and the last two were three...I dont know if I can call it a period because if i put on a pad i could honestly wear it for all of those three days (which I dont) and I am still getting pregnancy symptoms I've had morning sickness for god knows how long and everything my fiancé thinks im still pregnant and I haven't had a chance to get to the doctors because of insurance info..I ended up calling the medical hotline and asked if it was possible that I could get my period while pregnant she said no.. so I dont know what to believe anymore and I need some good advice I've also gained weight and I dont know how bc lately everything that I have been eating has been thrown up. I should be able to go to the doctors in a week or two but please let me know what you guys are thinking

Hi,
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.
Take care.
