Could I be pregnant??

My fiance and I have been trying to conceive for 3 months now - but this has been the first month where we had really planned to fall in line with ovulation, etc. We have had intercourse every day of my ovulation week through to 3 days after as well.

I am due to start my period on Wednesday or Thursday of this week but I at the moment, am not sure whether I am experiencing "implantation bleeding" or the start of an early period.
Sorry for being graphic, but its browninsh, mucus like discharge which only appears every now and then when wiping after having been to the toilet.

I have also been experiencing mild cramping, slight lower back pain, tender breats, tiredness and nauseus, and as crazy as it may sound, I have a very focused person and I seem to have troubles concerntrating as well - every now and then.

I am aware that this could all be in my head due to the fact that I so badly want to be pregnant - but what is your take on the above?

I can't tell you if this is pregnancy or not but if you miss your period, take a pregnancy test. 

Good luck,

Ok so due to the "spotting" yesterday, I thought I would possibly have started my period today. This morning, with my first trip to the loo, there was NOTHING.

Later there was more brownish mucous like disharge.
On the next trip to the loo, it was more maroon and a bit more water like.
Then nothing again????

Any view???

Hi Sashavr,

Implantation bleeding can be spotting from pink to brownish in color and it normally occurs about 1 week before your period is due. ::Fingers crossed:: for it to be Implantation Bleeding! 

It may be too soon for some of your symptoms but I do hope that you have a missed period this month and a big fat POSITIVE pregnancy test.

Good Luck!
