Could this be implantation bleeding?

I had some light brown spotting on day 19 of my cycle, light brown/pink spotting on day 20 of my cycle and light brown spotting on day 21. It stopped  after that. I’m not due for my period for about 8 days from now. Could this spotting have been implantation bleeding? I’ve had a slight headache for a couple days, and very light cramp feeling but hardly anything and a bit of nausea.

Implantation bleeding does happen to some women.  I didn't have it with any of my pregnancies though.  I don't think it is all that common.  When it happens, I think it is more like traces of blood rather than spotting.  This does sound like plain old spotting.  This can happen if our hormones fluctuating.  Women do get this as well when they are pregnant though it usually happens right around when their period would be due.  It sounds most like hormonal fluctuations to me verses pregnancy.  It's been a few days now.  Did you get your period or is anything else happening?  also, were you having unprotected sex?
