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! Is it possible that you ovulated earlier than you though and it's implantation spotting? If so than it could still take a couple of days before it will register on a HPT. Are you going to test again?
