I started light to moderate bleeding the Second week of Sept. around the 10th it was over by the 13th... I figured i was just having an extra period... I havent had large amounts of stress. Havent changed my eating habits. Well last night after my normal duties. I went to the restroom and there was to spots of blood. Like a fat ended marker and a fine point marker. I havent had anything since then. I went to the store and got 3 hpt. I took one this afternoon and it came back negative. I have already had one child. Im just to conserned that if I am prego the things I should not be doing and if I am how long should I wait to take another test to make that the deciding factor?
