  • It can be normal to bleed, but you could also be bleeding if you are dilated. I would make a call to your doctor & get yourself checked.

  • Some spotting is normal after that. If youre concerned call the doctor and get checked out.

  • OP, it sounds like you may be in labor. I would definitely get to a hospital and get checked out. My labor with my last child started with very irregular, but painful contractions. My husband finally talked me into going to the hospital & I was already 6-7 cms dilated!

  • the thing is that i stop having strong contactions but the bleeding is still going on. this morning i was keeping count of how far apart they were and they were 7 min apart but now i havent had one in quite some time since i woke up from my nap since i had not slept all night.
