User :   I have pain in my stomach and yesterday it was really reallly bad. The pain is in my pelvic area. I am not pregnant according to blood test and a few at home tests but I have been feeling pregnant like my breasts are much bigger and all that jazz. I started what I though was my period yesterday but it was much heavier than normal and it had a lot of clots in it which is not normal for me. This morning when I woke up I went to the restroom and not only was there a lot of clots but there was also a mucus like consistancy that was like tainted with blood. I have done some research and I'm worried that I have had a miscarriage but I have also heard some women explain this as implantaion bleeding but I'm confused. Help please.
