early period, brown blood

Hi,
I am new to this online posting thing.....
So, I have been ttc for 6 months and have very normal, every 28 days periods. This month has been different, no pms symtoms (usually have sore breast and sometimes cramps). My so called period came 4 days early and is brown, it was moderately heavy for a day and now it is only there when I wipe but has lasted 4 days. I've read so much on implantation bleeding but just don't know what to think at this point. This is unlike other periods for sure. Most sites say implantation bleeding goes along with cramping and sore breasts which I do not have. I am getting waves of nausea and have not taken a pregnancy test yet. Today is the day I should have gotten my period and the brownish bleeding appears to have stopped. Could I be pregnant? I have been unlucky in this department for the past 6 months so now I am skeptical that I am. Anyone have similar periods like this? If so, were you pregnant? I thought when I finally got pregnant I would have all these crazy signs, maybe it is jut a strange period????? I have found lots of similar questions like mine but no answers or updates to know what it turned out to be if anything.
thanks

Re: early period, brown blood

Brown blood is typically old blood that didn't pass in a previous period. It generally isn't a sign of anything else.

Re: early period, brown blood

Low progesterone or an anovulatory cycle can manifest as a few days of brown spotting before your period is due and your actual bleeding starts.
