That was a lot. (TMI)

I woke up yesterday morning and went to the potty. Well there was some blood at the bottom of the bowl and there was mucus and blood on the TP. Now this morning it happened AGAIN but A LOT worse. It was a huge amount on the bottom of the bowl and then there was MORE on the TP and it was mostly blood. I have never had bleed while pregnant. I know you can loose your plug that way and that is what my DR told me it was yesterday but this seems like a lot? I am 38wks.

  • You need to call your doctors office. A bloody show generally doesn't have that much. Just to make srue there's no tear in the placenta or a hemmorrage...call them

  • what did your doctor say? I didn't lose my plug, but guessing from the term "bloody show" it sounds like it could possibly be a lot. Your dr didn't have you come in? I would tell him I want to be seen right away. You have to be pushy with them sometimes.

  • How much is ALOT of blood? Like period? Is it dripping? It may be your plug b/c generally when you bleed it doesn't sink to the bottom of the toilet. Did it look like a clot or mixed with mucus? That would sink. My bloody show didn't drip but was more like a light period.

  • I would call the doctor to make sure that the placenta isn't detaching from the wall or that you aren't hemmorraging for some reason

  • I would just go to labor and delivery so I could get checked out if I were you. That would scare me.

  • I would call your doctor and describe it to them. They may tell you to come in or go to L&D
