Implantation or early period?

So my husband and I are TTC. We definitely had sex during the time I was ovulating. I wasn't due for my period until this Saturday but last Thursday I started having some light, brownish spotting. This went on until about Saturday when it turned red. I've been bleeding since then, but no cramps. Just a mild backache and headache sometimes. And it's definitely been lighter than a normal period. Usually my period will start full on, not with spotting for 2 days. My breasts are not tender or anything, there's been a few days I've been queasy and I am super tired all the time!



I'm pretty sure the same thing happened with my son, but I honestly don't know what to think? Could I be pregnant? Has this happened to anyone else? I have heard of cases where implantation bleeding can range from light spotting to what seems like a normal period. And I know some women have what they think are periods months into their pregnancy. Just wanted some insight before I "waste" a test on a hunch. Thanks!

The bleeding abruptly ended yesterday. usually it would taper off into spotting. I notice I'm getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom as well and I still the tiredness. I was ready to go to bed at 8pm last night and I am usually a night owl! I've thought my son was actually due a month earlier that what they said b/c I think the same thing happened when I was pregnant with him. I wasn't trying to get pregnant though so I had no idea and just thought it was a weird period for that month. I figure I might wait until this weekend when my period was due and test then. It is hard when you're TTC b/c you don't want to get your hopes up!

I would definatly check to be sure but I would wait to see if the bleeding stops first, Some woman have their period through their whole pregnancy. The fatigue is how I knew I was pregnant. Nothing else just the extra tiredness...Took a test and I was, but it is sooo hard when your trying because sometimes you can make yourself feel symptoms....You will never know until you test;)
