Beginning of light period or implantation?

I have had brown spotting for the last three days. My period was supposed to start two days ago. My cycle is very regular, every 28 days. However, this morning when I woke up I found bright red blood, in a bit larger amount than the brown spotting I've been having. It stopped for several hours today, and started up again about two hours ago. I have also been having symptoms that can be attributed with either situation, however I have never experienced these before with pms. I am very bloated, tired, gassy, and every now and then my lower back aches slightly. Also, I don't know whether this is relevant since everyone is different, but my mother told me she bled the entire time she was pregnant with me, which is why she was unaware until five months. Any thoughts?

A lot of times when you are trying to conceive or thing you may be pregnant you notice symptoms about your body that you never noticed before.

I'd wait until your next cycle to see what happens. Though your mom bled throughout her pregnancy, that is rare and typically if you have any heavy bleeding that's usually an indication you are not pregnant.

Good Luck.
