wondering if I'm pregnant - never had these symptoms before

I'm wondering if I'm pregnant. I took a pregnancy test that came up negative and within a couple days I had my period. The period lasted it's normal timespan - about 6 days (Jan 5-11). Then a few days ago (Jan 27 or 28) I woke up and by the time I was done with my shower, had some light bleeding. I put in a tampon and panty liner and by the time I took out the tampon, it was clean except for some dark brown discharge. Since then, each morning I've woken up and had a period-like flow of bleeding for a couple hours, but by nighttime I've stopped. I also have period-like cramps and back pain.

When I was pregnant with my son (he's 6 years old and our only child) I had some spotting but that was EXTREMELY light and didn't happen until I was about 8 weeks along. I had been throwing up and couldn't hold down anything, so I went to the doc and he took a blood test and that's how we found out. With this blood in the morning I'm weary of taking a home pregnancy test for fear of whatever might be in this blood causing a false positive. Has anyone else ever had this?

I cant say I have but my best advise is call you OB/GYN and leave a message with a nurse. You know your cycle. If this is abnormal for you something is up. It could be any number of things. I spotted off and on when I was 6 weeks with my current pregnancy. they might suggest doing an ultrasound just to have a look around or do some blood/urine tests just to be sure.
