Bleeding and 35 Weeks

I'll be 35 Weeks tomorrow. I had sex on Thursday, and last night (Sat) noticed a tiny bit of the brown tinged blood mixed with mucous that I know can happen when the cervix is disrupted, after sex or after the doc checks your cervix. This morning there was a lot of the same color mixed in, so I've worn a pad all day. It seems to be a pretty consistent flow (although it would be considered extremely light if it were actually a period). There also seems to be an increase in my BH Contractions, but they are not regular or painful.
So, My question is this... Is there cause for concern about the mix of fluids? I've been told that as long as the blood appears brown and not pink or red that it's old and no real reason for concern. Anyone have experience with this, or been told this? Thanks ladies!

  • Being a mother to 3, 2 which were preemies, 1 born 12 weeks early and 1 born 4 weeks early, I suggest if you see any blood weather its brown, pink or red you need to call your OB/Midwife to let them know. With my 1st there was no blood but ended up having a placeta abruption and me & my son nearly died. Let your health care provider know and go from there. It could be nothing but better safe than sorry.

  • get checked by your doc, sounds like it could have been your mucus plug.

  • I should also add, that my doctor checked me at 29 weeks and I had lost my plug, or at least a good part of it. There was no blood (old or new) with the initial piece of plug being lost. To anyone mentioning to get checked... I have an appointment on the 30th.. would you recommend getting checked sooner?

  • your mucous plug is softening and getting ready to drop and then eventually your waters break..

  • Ive been hearing of something called the "bloody show" which I think has to do with your mucous plug, that sounds like what it would be to me! Let me know what your doctor says if you call her tomorrow!I wouldnt worry,but call your Dr if it doesnt go away. Good luck girlie!
