Bleeding at 38 weeks.

I am 38weeks 2 days. I just went to the bathroom and when I wiped there was blood. I wiped 3 more times and there was more blood - bright red. I am having no contractions or pain. It is not like mucos, just red blood. It's like the start of a period. What could this be?
Is it normal??

  • It could be very normal, but I'm going to tell you to call your doc anyway. I had the same thing with my first and it was normal.

  • And I was going in to labor, please call tho, and don't worry about it being nothing. The end of a pregnancy is an uncertain time, I was in labor with my third and didn't realize it because the contractions weren't intense or getting closer together.

  • If you just had an exam It's possible to bleed. Just to be sure though call your OB/Gyn
