I know that having a normal period when you're pregnant is not possible, but a girl I worked with said that when she was pregnant with her first 2 children she had her period. She said it was the same amount of days as her actual period and the flow was exactly the same as her actual period. It went on for the first 3 months, and she still had her kids.

So I'm confused now. Can anyone help me?

That piece sums up all the possibilities very succinctly, from an incrediby reliable source.
In a word: no, she could not have been having her period. But there are a few types of vaginal bleeding she may have been experiencing instead.

(And on top of those reasons, an abnormally implanted placenta is one more.)
