Hello i was wondering the same thing. How did you go at the doctors? was it a misscarry, or was it implantation bleeding? Please reply, i think i am pregnant. Did you get any cramps for a couple of hours when you where bleeding this brown blood?


Hi, i might be 5weeks pregnant though i strongly believe that I'm only 3weeks.. My last period was March 25, 2008 and today is April 28,2008 and I'm having this thick brown spotting, it's mixed up with transparent mucus. Just a little amount of it but after few minutes it became watery and dark red and in greater amount that doesn't appear to be in spot stains anymore.. Anyway, my breasts feel bruised and im having back pains and cramps but the cramps got worse while im bleeding or having the brown spotting.. Is that just a 7 days late period? or it is a clear sign of pregnancy? pls. reply..
