    I can see where you could be confused, but this is not a bed bug.

    Thank you, that is a relief! So it could no even be the early form of a bed bug nymph then?

    The body shape is not consistent with any stage of bed bug. The antennae are also quite different. It may be in the cimicid family, but Lou is probably the only person that could tell you what you're looking at.
