Question spotting? or period? Please help!

I will start off saying that i had my regular af on april 21, which was 4 days long and all normal...the cramps the night before, then starting that morning heavy the first day, then lightening up the rest. Then my b/f and i were trying to concieve 4th-6th of may (while i was ovulating the most), and i had and still have the symptoms of early pregnancy for the past month or so but i have tested negative 4 times a hpt, i know that they can give a false negative, or just not work for some i did the calculations and if i am pg then i would be right around 7 weeks, now for my problem...yesturday around 4pm after intercourse i started to have a little bleeding it was a very light red color and very thin, then it stopped for about 2 hrs. then i got some mild cramps, then it came heavy, w/o stringy lining, or clots just more blood, this morning i woke up with cramps still but a little less harsh than yesturday, still bleeding but back to being thin and faint in color and i have no cramps at all this is really stumping me since i didn't have af last month and now this and i have always had the cramps the night before and that was it. Are my calculations wrong and am i just now getting that implantaion bleeding, or is it my period, or spotting? I just don't get it! Can anyone help me out with this???

p.s. This is not at all like my " normal" af, and i have been under no stress, not even about trying to concieve...I just don't get it.

Re: spotting? or period?

I know that some times hpt's give false negative readings, but i have posted back because the description of your bleeding and pregnancy symptoms matched mine. my dates were the same as yours except i had 3 bfp's and my bleeding was a sign of miscarriage. My doctor told me 1 in 3 first pregnancies end in miscarriage with many women not knowing they are pregnant and i wonder if this is what has happened to you. I really don't want to worry you it may just be a weird period but it is just when i read you post your bleeding description is so close to my experience i had to reply. However i really don't want to worry you and the bleeding could be lots of other things. Whatever the cause of the bleeding good luck with either trying to concieve or the pregnancy you may be in. i am sorry I can't answer your question but it may be best to see your doctor to get things checked out. Hope i have been of some help to you.
Best wishes, good luck
