Hello Deborah. And welcome to HCM.

The brown spotting is indeed experienced by woman nearing menopause. But, this alone does not mean that you are peri-menopausal (around menopause).

There are chances of HPT's returning negative even in pregnant women and the best option would be a blood test. You only have to wait another day and you could confirm this.

I hope this information helps. Best wishes.
