If you are having a period, you probably aren't pregnant. And a heavy period isn't a sign of pregnancy, but a light period can be.

My sister's period came on with each of her 3 children, and it wasn't spotting either. I'm not sure why yours is heavy, but for sure women can receive a normal period and still be pregnant. Be sure to check with your OB/GYN. Good Luck.
