    I got a couple bites a few days ago and I'm not sure if this is a bed bug.
    If so, what stage is it in?

    Do want my 50-50 guess?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    It looks like a bed bug.
    It looks like an adult female.

    I stress that I am not an expert.

    Besides this, have you see any other signs, fecal stains, skins?

    I started getting bites on 11/27 and every other day since. Today, when I was pulling the sheets out from my bed, i found the bb and killed it. I inspected the whole bed and frame and found no signs of other bb's and eggs.

    No. Looks like an adult male.
