Q: Late period, bright red spotting, pregnancy symptoms...what is up?

My LMP was August 15th and I O'd on either the 5th or 6th. We BDed on the 6th. Since then I have slowly started getting preg. symptoms. Sore bbs, cravings, tender nipples, etc. I tested 10 dpo and BFN. I decided to wait until a missed period to test again.
12 and 13 dpo I felt very sick, tired, and exhausted. So I spent most of those days in bed. I checked my cervix 13dpo and it was high medium and open. I figured it was over. I had light red blood every time I went to the bathroom that night, but nothing on my panties. 14 dpo my cervix is even higher and still open. The red blood has stopped and I'm getting occasional tiny brown spots on TP, but it's mostly stopped. I've got light cramps every once in a while, but that's it. Normally my period comes right on time and is really heavy the first three days.
I'm really confused. I've still got really sore bbs, which I never get before AF. I've had this bleeding/spotting that has pretty much stopped, but no real period.

Ive been going thru the same things. I went to the Health Center today and she told me that it was my cycle and that it was normal - which isn't for me. My AF is right on time, always, and to be spotting for the last 10 days is absolutely annoying at this point and its only when i wipe. I wore a liner for almost 14 hours and nothing but a spot and now its bright red blood with lil stringy clots in it but the nurse told me it was miracle if i were pregnant and to take a test to put my mind at ease on friday (7 days past AF's arrival) .. but I dont know Im just as confused as you sound. I feel yah sista.

Let me know how it turns out! I have been having pregnancy symptoms since 6 dpo and they kept getting stronger. At 14 dpo I got a bfn, 15 dpo I thought my period was starting but it was so light I only see blood on the tp when I wipe and my af is usually so heavy I'm changing my tampon every 45 min. My symptoms haven't gone away and today I am still spotting at 17 dpo. Haven't taken another test yet, I keep expecting my period to come at full force.
Good luck and I hope this is a good sign for both of us.

Just based on experience, you may have tested too early. My first pregnancy was just as you described. I cramped like AF was about to start, then I would wipe and get a little bit of light pink spotting on the tissue. I would do another hpt and if negative, see your dr.

If the hpt's are negative but you still haven't seen AF, go to your dr. who can do a blood test to see if you are pregnant.

it could be a number of things. If you are just getting off BC it could be your body adjusting. It could be implantation spotting, or just AF coming early. I would test again in a couple of days if AF has not arrived.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? Why is my period messed up? Or is this just an early miscarriage?
