  • it could be just from where the messed around with stuff. i bled before I went into labor, especially dark blood, from where they were checking to see how far dilated I was

  • Sounds like it's from the check. It irritated your cervix.
    You can avoid getting checked in the future since it doesn't give any useful information and bothers your cervix. You're still going to labor ...whenever, anyways, right?

  • i was checked and a couple days later was still bleeding, when i finally went into labor. i wore a pad for just in case. i don't remember if i had dark blood or not, i think it was light. i'd call the doc just to be on the safe side.
