Today at 930am (it's almost 3pm right now.) I had a doctors appointment which she checked me and said I was 1cm dilated. She said there would be spotting to not worry, so I've had spotting since then. BUT, (tmi) I had to poop, and when I did it sent a gush of blood into the toilet and when I wiped it had looked like my period had started. I don't want to disturb the doctor because she did warn me that I would have spotting, but to me that's not spotting. I'm not cramping or anything. Did any of you ladies have this? I'm thinking it's where I had to push to poo that it may have just pushed extra blood out. When I see blood though I freak out. I'm so nervous.
