Ive posted several times and havnt had a reply and im so confused. Ive had alot of the pregnancy symptoms and still do but was a week late and now am spotting a very light pink color. I dont know what to think. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was neg according to the digital reader and when i took the stick out it had two lines but one very light. I also think i may have a uti. What should i do? Any advice..could i be pregnant even if im spotting?

well if the stick has read two lines, even though one is very light, if it still appeared then its a positive. i would recommend taking a third one and use the "first response" brand because they are pretty good. if the third one comes out positive then you should see a doctor to confirm your results. Spotting could be a sign of the egg attatching itself to your uterus. its pertty common when women get pregnant to spot due to this. you can also look for the symptom of having white discharge. if you do then the cervical mucus is still there and the likeliness of u being pregnant could be higher. so i would recommend taking one more pregnancy test. use the double line tester since thats the kind that brought u up positive last time. and if it comes up negative or positive id recommend you to get confirmed at a doctor either way.

Thank you for the advice. Today i woke up to find that im not just spotting. Its very bright red blood and im passing very tiny clots which dont ever do during any of my periods ever. I had alot of cramping last night and havnt been feeling to well. Could this be a possible miscarriage. I would test now but since im bleeding some i dont know what i should do. Also i noticed a canker sore in my mouth yesterday which i used to get all the time when i was younger but that stopped around age 16 ..i am now 24. Im not sure if that means anything. I do take perscription meds such as neuroten and cogentin..im not sure if that could have did something as well or not. Im really scared because i wanted to be preggerz but if im not i can always keep trying. But it scares me that i dont know whats going on with my body. I havnt seen any white discharge as of yet because i had put a tampon in last night before sleeping. When i awoke to put on a pad it was not the color of red but alot of brown..dark brown. But i peed then wiped and the blood was a very bright red/pink. Ive never expierenced a period like this before and when i normally have it i dont usually ever have cramps. Thanks again for replying back Smile i almost thought no one would.

brown is still a sign of implanation. (egg attatching itself to the uterus) blood clots are normal. i get them during my periods. altho i havent had kids yet so i wouldn't be soo certain about being pregnant with that. with an educated guess id say you could be starting your period, and there might be a clot blocking the flow from starting all the way. thats actually happened to me a few times. once i pass the larger clot my flow would come. but still. i urge you to take another test. (use the double pink lined ones so ur using the same brand to get the same results) try doing that and see what happens.

your welcome! keep me updated so i know your okay. Smile
if you are like me and dont have insurance, i usually go to the health department if i would need to confirm pregnancy results. but if you feel its something not right, go with your gut instinct because a womans intuition is normally on target. so let me know how ur results are! *hugs*

Well i awoke this morning with still a little bleeding and brown discharge with it so ive decided not to take the test yet since i only have one left and am broke till i get paid and wouldnt be able to buy another one till then. Last night i had alot of pain in my pelvic and hips down my legs. More like cramping pain. I was really neasueated and have been feeling that way at night time for the past week or so now. I cant eat as everything i look at smells or tastes funny or just isnt appealing to me. I really wish i knew what is going on but cant see the doctor until thursday. I wont be online for a few days..prolly till tuesday or so. I will update then on how im feeling. Also i have been bad headaches at night time and had a slight nose bleed last night as well. Not alot of blood just a few spots when i blew my nose. I dont have those often as that was the third time in my life that its happened. My legs today are still cramping..especially my right one..starting at my hip and down to my toes..well ima go write later on if i can Smile i didnt sleep at all last night so im going to try again now.take care. ( thanks for replying back and hope things are good for you Smile *hugz back*

You can be pregnant and spotting at the same time. Give it some time to see if you are. If you are worried, see a doctor.
