I'm 37 weeks pregnant and bleeding

It started out like my period and slowed down to spotting. It has been going on all day. My mucus plug came out on Tues. I have been having contractions 2-4 min apart since Wed. Dr. said can't do anything until I either hit 39 weeks or my water breaks. Should I be worried about the bleeding and go get checked?

  • Go to another hospital, you should not bleed like that at all! Was it the day of your internal? What are you doing on the computer--U should be going to the hospital! Sometimes the water does not break! 37 weeks is duable! Good Luck and take care!

  • I seriously hope you are going to the hospital right now. If your doctor really said that you with 2-4 min. contractions and bleeding, you might want to consider a ditching him and filing a malpractice suit. He sounds like a quack. Get to a hospital ASAP.

  • Bleeding in pregnancy should be checked out especially if it was like a period. Call your doctor or go to the hospital or both.
