Red spotting at 37 weeks


Hi ladies,

When I went to the loo in the night I wiped and there was bright red spots of blood on the toilet paper.

I put a pad on and went back to bed and although there has so far been nothing on the pad this has happened when I've been to the loo since.

It's not mucous plug as there has been no mucous, only blood.

Don't know whether I should go phone the midwife, just go and get checked out or do nothing and see what happens.

I know blood tinged mucous is normal at this point but not so sure about actual bleeding, even when it's light

Hey hun! This happened to me at 37 weeks and 5 day's

Bright red spotting on a pad, Not a lot but It continued a little so I called the hospital and they asked me to come in to be checked, Turned out they couldn't find the cause, They put me on a monitor to make sure that baby was ok and she was just perfect! They also did a smear test witch was fine and did some swabs for infections witch was also fine.

Have you had sex at all? Sometimes that can irritate your cervix, I am sure everything is fine hun but call your MW to be sure!

xx

Thanks ladies,

Unfortunately I can't put it down to sex. The thought of LO in there weirds hubby out so I only get to indulge occasionally and last time was about two weeks ago.

I have been a bit uncomfortable down there for a day or two so infection is a possibility. Didn't think much of it as haven't noticed a difference in discharge or anything like that but I guess it could be.

I will call MW and see what she says x
