Am I suppose to be bleeding??

Im 39 weeks and my due date is tomorrow. I went to the doctor on Monday and the Doc checked my cervix's and Im 2 1/2 cm dilated and 50% effaced but I been spotting bright red blood then today its a little darker so I guess its ok now or Im not sure. Im not having any contractions at all so Im guessing she is not going to be on time. I called the doctor and she said Im fine but it makes me nervous because they dont even want to check me.

  • Because of the increased amount of blood you are carrying and the fact that your cervix is super sensitive right now bleeding does occur when you get checked for dialtion. It happens and it's perfectly normal, but they should have told you to expect it. You're fine.
