    I found several of these bugs on the floor by my bed.
    Not sure if they are bed bug nymphs or not.
    Can somebody please confirm.

    Not an expert, but that's not a bed bug. I'm thinking Spider Beetle? Let an expert confirm.

    Appears to be shiny spider beetles. Compare to this photo of one:

    And then look at these photos so you can familiarize yourself to what bed bugs look like:

    I guess all have beat me to it. Shiny spider beetle. You can see how globular this insect is - it really doesn't look like any stage of a bed bug. Just compare images of bed bugs to yours so you will see it.
