A little bleeding at 35 weeks...

My SO and I had sex last evening, and following I had some cramping with contractions. It went away after a while, but when I went to the bathroom before bed I noticed some bloody particles in the bottom of the toilet. Nothing else till this morning, I went to get in the shower and had blood in my underwear, bright red. It wasn't a lot and I haven't had painful contractions this morning. Anyone else have this? (Dr. office said to stay home from work and drink some water.)

  • Just listen to the doc and stay off your feet. If they arent too concerned than I wouldnt worry about it. If it gets worse then i would go to the hospital just to get checked out. GL

  • I personally would go to the ER and get checked out. Sometimes Dr offices are "too busy" to worry with you. Bright red is never good though....

  • I agree with ashjoe that's not good if you have bright red blood there could be something wrong.

  • It could be part of your mucus plug b/c I did that and it was. I consistantly did it until the day I delivered. What would make me concerned is if you had bleeding and little movement from the LO.
    But if you still wanna go which I probably would b/c I am peranoid when prego go to labor and delivery, my hospital after 24 weeks no matter what the problem the ER wont take you.

  • the bits are most likely your mucous plug and if you are just having a bit of bright red blood with no clots it was probably your cervix getting bumped. I have heard that contractions are fairly normal after sex once you are this far along, I personally have never experienced that. If the bleeding has stopped, I wouldn't worry too much. (I had a sensitive cervix and bled like that throughout my entire first pregnancy.)
