LIGHT SPOTTING 8 DAYS AFTER PERIOD- AM I PREGNANT?PLEASE HELP!

Hi,
I am 32 years old and have not concieved in 12 years (I have never used any sort of contraceptives)
Last year I lost alot of weight and a few months ago I had a miscarriage.
What I would like to know is that if my period lasted from 10/06/06 to 15/06/06 could I already be pregnant?
The reason I am asking is because today I had some light spotting which went away after wipping 4-5 times, also since yesterday I have had cramping and kind of a heavy/slightly tender feeling area below my navel which is very obvious.
I also had very unusually bad mood swings 3 days ago which I know were very hormonal.

should I get my hopes up?

In most instances a women does not even ovulate until 12-17 days after her period is done. Now there are some instances that a woman ovulates near her period. But it does not sound as if you have even ovulated yet this month. So it is unlikely that you are pregnant so soon after your period which was just 8 days ago.

I doubt you could be pg so soon, today you'd be on cd14. How long is your cycle?

Sometimes a woman will spot during or around the time she is supposed to ovulate.  Some say that is a good sign.  It apparently means that you are producing extra hormones that are good for ovulation.  

Below is a quote from the following link:
http://www.beyondfertility.com/art238.htm

"Spotting that occurs in the middle of your cycle or spotting that occurs some ten to fourteen days prior to the start of the next cycle is normal too. This spotting may occur during ovulation. Seeing a spot of blood during ovulation is considered an excellent fertility sign. It is thought that mid-cycle spotting occurs for one of two reasons. First reason is possibly that when the egg bursts through the follicle, a little bleeding may occur. This blood will then make its way out and show up as

Hi I got my period on the 25th by the 27th it had stopped...it was lighter then usual. On the 29th I started bleeding again but light and it was only there for about 4 hours. I took a preg test on the 31st and it was neg. But on the 4th I had pinkish stuf on the toilet paper then alittle bit of brown for about 3 hours but it was only there when I wiped. So I'm thinking of doing a test tomorrow morning on the 8th. I am in my 4th month off the pill..so let's hope.
