Bleeding Could I Still Be Pregnant

Ok, so my last normal period was from Dec. 21st to the 28th. I had s_x on the 9th. 1 in the morning. About 4 days after having s_x I began getting symptoms such as swollen and sore br___ts, headaches, fatigue, frequent urination, nausea, etc. Also, I've heard some women get cramps when they get pregnant. Well I started getting mild to moderate cramps then too. Which I have NEVER gotten until right before my period. Well, I took a HPT on the 19th. It was just some offbrand $4 one and it was 3 days too early to be testing. It came out negative. My period should've started on the 21st. Today, on the 24th I bled a brown red watery blood. It's very light. Usually, I always get a brown discharge a few days before I start my period and then when it starts its extremely heavy! But this hasn't happened. Also, usually for the first 3 days of it my cramps are so severe I have to stay in bed. But they've only been moderate at worse. Could I still be pregnant? And healthy? I have the woman's intuition that I am but some of these signs are against odds. I'm really hoping that I am pregnant. Please let me know what you think. Thanks

Are you still bleeding? Because if you were having your period I would think that it would become more heavy within a day if not I would hold out a couple more days and then test with a better brand other people have said that, that has helped. and try to make sure to take the test in the morning.

Well, I started this bleeding at about 2 or 3 this afternoon. its atleast 8 hours later and it's still very very light. a brown color now. I'm hoping and praying so so much that I am pregnant. And that it is healthy, because I have had a miscarriage in the past. Hopefully, it will continue to be light in this hopeful manner or will stop completely. If so, I'll take another test. thanks for responding.

Hi Arial! You know I have a little similar issue. I had brown spottings, than a little of lighter brown with more flow than spottings, but less than my ussual menses. Now its only spotting again, with very dark brown during the day, but when I go to the bathroom, I have some blood clots and thats it. I TOO hope I am pragnant and praying! Even though its time for my menses now, I still think I may be preg., because of my sypmtoms. Before all this started I felt very tired, always sleepy, nauseated, all the smells I loved, they began stinking :) my b___st were inlarged and hurting. (unussual for me during period) I still have these sypmtoms. I am kind of worried, but still hope I am preggers. I went to Planned Parenthood and they told me that it could be an implantation bleeding, or it could be that I am just worried to get pregnant or that a lot of woman have miscariages and dont know.... The test came back neg., so she told me to come back next week to do another one. Because you need to count 10-12 days from your last intercourse (different in every woman). It could be neg. because its too early. I did 3 home tests correctly and they would not show anything pos. nor neg. A friend of mine is 4 mo pregnant now and in the begining of her preg. she had a lot of lower abdomen pain and did a lot of home preg. tests and went to ER almost every other day. ALL test came back negative, but she knew she was pregnant.

Well, it was my period. I'm a__suming because it got a bit heavier. I figured I was probably just grasping at straws anyway. I'm dissapointed but I know when I finally do get pregnant it will be the right time. Good luck to you though!
