Is it common to bleed a decent amount after getting your cervex checked?

My midwife just checked my cervex for dilation. I was 4cm dilated and 70% effaced. Now I am bleeding, less than a period but red this normal?? am I in labor...Sorry had a c-section with my last so I don't really know what's going on, if you know and can tell me that would help :)

  • You can spot. If it's enough to wear a pad, I'd call your midwife.

  • Some is normal.
    Why are you getting checked?
    Are you planning to have a VBAC?
