  • I would call your doctor and ask them.... And they will tell you probably to go to L&D. Also if you move positions and it stops you might be having braxton hicks contractions,,, But any spotting is not good. It could be something minor all the way to an abrupt placenta...

  • I agree, call your doc. It might not be labor but it also might be and you dont want that this early.
    Better to be safe than sorry.

  • It could be. The best thing to do is call your doctor or head over to the hospital and be checked out. Better to be laboring in a semi-controlled environment prepared for an emergency than wait and see. Wait and see could result in delivery which you are not quite ready for. They can try to stop labor at the hospital to allow those last few weeks baby needs.
