So my period arrived a day late and it seemed like it lasted shorter than usual but it was heavy flow. Could this be a sign ofppregnancy?

If it showed up when you expected (a few days' variation is not unusual, even for people who are very regular) and felt and looked like a period, then it most likely was your period. If you have had a pregnancy risk, and would like extra reassurance, you can take a pregnancy test, but most often pregnancy is associated with a LACK of bleeding.

It would be very unlikely to be a similar amount or more flow than someone's usual period or a similar length of time, because the uterine lining is needed to sustain a pregnancy.
