  • are you just spotting or is it really heavy? I spotted in the beginning of my pregnancy, ends up it was a really bad uti! my baby was on my bladder so I didnt know any better that I was frequently peeing due to a uti lol. if it's followed by cramps i'd contact your dr. how long has this been occuring

  • More info please. ;-)

    Is it red or brown?
    With mucous?
    After a vaginal exam or intercourse?
    Continuing to bleed or just spotting?
    How far along are you?

    Rather than ask here~ if you're truly concerned, call your doctor/midwife.

  • Normal vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
    In addition to potentially worrisome causes of bleeding, some vaginal bleeding near the end of pregnancy is normal. As the cervix begins to thin out and relax in preparation for labor, the thick plug of mucus that seals the opening of the cervix is dislodged. When this happens, you may notice a thick or stringy discharge that may be tinged with blood. This "bloody show" is a normal sign of impending labor that may occur up to a week or two before delivery.
