Hi everyone, I've never been pregnant so I'm totally new to all of this. I'm hoping somebody will help me get some clarity on my situation...so here goes.
My periods are relatively inconsistent every month. Last month was the 15th, the month before was the 9th and the month before that was the 12th.
April 15th - period started
April 20th-23rd - did the deed sometime in between those dates
April 27th - saw light spotting when wiping, accompanied with a bowl movement. Lightly spotted for a couple hours that day. Later that day felt dizzy and nausea after I ate (but did not throw up)
The spotting never came back after that day and every day after that I have been EXTREMELY tired, to the point where I could sleep multiple times in one day, wake up and still feel like I could go back to sleep.
I am not prone to getting headaches, but found myself waking up with them days in a row and having them all day.
I have been going to the bathroom a little more than usual (like every hour) but I have a weak bladder so not sure if that can be considered as a true sign of any sort.
I also don't usually have menstrual cramps, but did find myself having cramps for a minute then they going away shortly after. This has been a consistent thing that I noticed happened after the spotting; still happens up to this very moment.
I did also have dry mouth a couple times when I woke up in the past week and I drank 3 glasses of water when we went out for dinner once (which is not common, I usually only drink 1 bottled water a day)
I have never spotted between periods before, and usually have easy periods. I have take 3 HPT, the last one I took was May 8th and all came out BFN.
Wasn't TTC but if it did happen my husband and I would be very happy. Can anyone shed some light on my situation? Am I pregnant?

It's possible that you could be early on. They would date your pregnancy from 15th April so you would be just under 4wks (possibly too soon to get a positive). Try & hold out until the weekend, if there is no sign of AF arriving over the weekend then try another test at this point. Best wishes & good luck

Thanks for your reply @kazziem! I guess another big question would be...
What is the difference between implantion bleeding vs. ovulation bleeding?
Also, I never had ovulation signs on a monthly basis. So would it be possible that randomly I can start having them now?
