  • It is common in late pregnancy to spot after sex because your cervix is soft. However if its associated with cramping and/or leaking fluid and tightening of your belly it also could be a sign of labor.

  • The good thing is u r close enough to 40 weeks that ur baby will be ok. Once the baby quits moving so much, means he is getting ready to to come into our world. Don't witty to much u will be ok.
