  • Did you have sex recently (like last night or this morning) ?

    Your cervix is really soft right now, and if you did have sex that is what the blood could be from. If it has stopped and already is brown (meaning older blood) then I wouldn't worry about it. If it happens again, however, then I would worry and give the doctor a call.

  • It's been 2 weeks since I've had sex, But did go to the doc this morning and he checked me and said I ws 1cm and starting to thin out.. So he must of did something up there for that to happen....

  • Yeah, I remember bleeding slightly after every time he checked me once I hit 30 weeks. So, it sounds pretty normal :)
