On and off nausea, constipation, lower back pain, brown discharge. Implantation bleeding? Pregnant?

About a week ago I started feeling pregnancy symptoms . I would have on and off nausea through out the day, my breasts were much fuller and bigger, and i was constipated. This morning I woke up with tingling nipples, sore breasts and lower back pains. The past few days I have also been experiencing some cramping. Tonight at work I experienced lower back pains, mild abdominal cramping and i noticed a brown discharge . I ve been waiting to take a test until saturday morning because ive been having so many symptoms. My period is due in two days. Is the brown discharge implantation bleeding? Am I having my period? or is this just bleeding that occurs in early pregnancy? I would really like to know so i can start taking care of myself better in the event that i am pregnant so the baby is safe. I had no severe nausea today, but my breasts are very sore. The spotting is light. Please help!

Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you have been having signs and symptoms commonly seen in pregnancy. The first step you should take now is to do a urine home pregnancy test to ascertain if you are pregnant. If the result comes out positive, then you should get in touch with your Ob-Gyn Doctor who will confirm the diagnosis with an ultrasound. Irrespective of the result, you should discuss your future pregnancy plans with your Doctor as iron-folic acid prophylaxis is usually started when the individual states her intention of becoming pregnant. Hope this helps
