And that usually does not happen 

Well, I *thought* I got my period. 

Three days ago I had brown spotting once when I wiped (period was due 2 days ago and is usually like clockwork) then again today I thought I started but it turned out to just be pink and more brown spotting. That was at about 9:00am and since then I have had nothing. This is very unusual for me. I cannot think of a time it has happened. I still have not gotten my period but my breast are extremely sore/tender to the touch. This morning I got a negative result on a dollar store pregnancy test. I am seriously confused about all of this!?

I have always been aware of my body and how this time of the month goes: back pain, extreme hunger, bad mood then period. Bam. That easy. This whole spotting, breast soreness thing is really throwing me off. I have never experienced anything like this before. My period usually comes on heavy and then subsides, not the other way around.

Any suggestions/thoughts/opinions? Maybe I'm a control freak but I hate not knowing what the heck my body is doing!!

Thank you 

(BTW- I am new & this is my first post. So, hello!)

Hi there,

I can certainly understand why you are confused!  Anything new to report since posting this?  It honestly sounds like it could be implantation bleeding to me.  Are you currently taking birth control of any kind?  Please update us when you can!
