I started my period 12/9/11 which was the day I was supposed to start, I'm always on time and it 4-5 days long, and heavy and cramping before during and after. This month though it lasted 2 days cramped the first day. The beginning of the day it was semi heavy then got very light. After the 2 days I started spotting brown then faint pink but no cramps now the spotting has stopped I'm having slight cramps just enough to catch me off guard. From the beginning of my "period" to now every time I'm standing for a while or in the shower I get light headed and almost pass out. I also get nauseated, if I bend over, roll over in bed or move my upper half of my body it feels like I'm just goin to burp but it aint. Also I'm having to urinate A LOT its starting to agrivate me. I would like to know if I'm pregnate so would my husband. I'm restless and so tired I hardly have energy but can't sleep. Thank you

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms (brown/pink discharge, shorter and lighter periods, abdominal cramps, nausea, burping, frequent urination, restlessness, lightheadedness, increased tiredness, disturbed sleep) could suggest pregnancy possibility. If you had been sexually active around your ovulation time, chances of pregnancy are a possibility. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy and consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
