Period is late. Have brown spotting, tender breasts, bloating and cramps. Pregnancy?

Hi I am curious if i am pregnant. I am 9 days late past my period and I started light spotting on tuesday and it stopped after an hour and it was light brown and yesterday nothing and now today I started spotting again. today though its been on and off and it is more light red/ brown in color and again its very very light and comes and goes. I also have been expierencing tender breasts that ache on and off throughout the day but recently more on the sides and some around or near my nipples. I have been bloated and have had gas. I have also had some light crampping that usually seems to be affiliated with gas but not always. Please help me. I dont know what to think about the spotting and if that is normal. Oh and some of my favorite foods taste funny to me.

Thank you for your query.
The symptoms that you describe are associated with, but not confirmatory , of pregnancy.
With altered and a delayed period, chances of pregnancy do exist.
However, other conditions like stress, anxiety, weight fluctuations, travelling, thyroid disorders, polycystic ovaries, hormonal medications etc also could cause altered menstrual bleeding.
Meanwhile, please take a urine pregnancy test in order to confirm whether pregnancy is there or not.
take care.

OBGYN Dr. Mrs Sumeet Baheti's  Response
As you have missed periods, these all symptoms are more likely due to pregnancy, but they can not confirm pregnancy.
For confirmation, you have to get urine pregnancy test done.
You need to get an ultrasound scan done to find out the cause and significance of the spotting.
Hope this is helpful to you.
