    I have always had very regular periods. I was supposed to get my period on the 10th. It hasn't came yet. I have no nausea, no sore nipples, no real signs of pregnancy. I do however have some cramping down there. Sometimes the cramping gets really strong. This morning I noticed there was a small brown spot on my underwear and when I used the restroom there was a streak of blood on the toilet paper. Could this be the start of my period finally or could this be spotting in pregnancy? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Well I went ahead and took a test just to be sure and it has come back negative. I have noticed that I have started to bleed a little more...not enough to wear a pad or tampon. So I'm not real sure whats going on. My period has never been late so I'm confused on why it would be almost a week late?
