Please tell me these aren't bed bugs (pictures attached).

Saw one of these today on a guest bed, and took some photos of it. Looking at pictures online, I'm hoping these aren't the dreaded buggers, but obviously my judgement is clouded by personal biases at the moment. Can anyone tell me what they think these are?
one of its back.
one for scale.
it is on its back.
another when it's on its legs.
I don't see any striations on the back, but I've been told bed bugs can look different depending on where they are in their life cycle. Any help with IDing this guy will really put my mind at ease. Thanks everyone!
