  • I never noticed it happening with mine, but is it possible you have lost your mucous plug and this is maybe a little bit of old blood from that? They always say not to worry unless there is bright red blood. Or if there is an odor, I would probably call the doc.

  • i agree, mucous plug most likely. no cause for concern unless you're having severe pains or if there's bright red blood, or lots of it

  • You pooped!!! I'm just kidding. I'd ask a doc and get some panty liners in the meantime!!! I've also ruined a few undies that way.....

  • put on a panty liner and go to the hospital so you can show what you are talking about..... It is better to be overly safe then oops to late... since you have already started to dial late you need to make sure everything is okay. Even if you have not had contraction go to the hospital....

  • I dont throw my undies away when they get stained with period blood. Cause I would not have any left if I did that. I just wash them in hot water with bleach. Color safe bleach. But sounds like me you are losing your mucus plug congrats!!
