I am now a week late with my period. I have been experiencing nausea, headaches, and an increased appetite and breast tenderness. I took a pregnancy test last friday and there was a faint positive. I waited two days took another one to be sure (using first mornings pee) and it was negative. Yesterday (Tuesday) I had some brown discharge. Then today I woke u spotting bright red. However, what is freaking me out the most is that I'm spotting on the pad but when I wipe after using the bathroom there seems to be more that just spots. I haven't really cramped at all, just felt a little twinge type pain in my stomach. Please help me I need answers! Thanks
