Trying to conceive

Okay, I'll try to make this simple. I only started TTC this month, so I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I am a little worried. I should have ovulated around the 20th of September or so and AF was due on the 4th of October. The week leading up I felt that my nipples were a little sore to touch (which usually isn't always an AF sign for me) and my breasts were heavier. I was so fatigued as well that on the 5th, one day late, I took a first response pregnancy test. After 3 minutes I looked and thought it was negative but at closer inspection I saw that if I looked hard, there was a very, very faint pink line. I was so shocked! I decided to take another the next morning to see if it was more noticable (as the first was done late at night) but it came out the same. I was going to see a doctor the following Tuesday but I noticed that on the 7th, I had red blood in my CM. I had no cramping or any other AF symptoms so I was a little worried. It has now been 2-3 days later and it is stopping but the bleeding was like a normal period flow with red blood and very little clotting. I don't know what this means? Should I test again, see a doctor....? Please help! I hope it isn't a chemical pregnancy or early MC

Well, just to put your mind at ease regarding the bleeding - listen to this!
5 weeks ago I went to A & E with heavy bleeding - I already had my period so i was wondering what on earth this could be! 3 weeks later, I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant! All that bleeding (it was A LOT!) and still I managed to get pregnant!
As for the pregnancy test - the only thing to do is to go to your doctor or local GUM Clinic (who are so helpful) to confirm the results of the test. Hope you get the answers you are looking for.
