Ok so I am pregnant with my first baby. I am 38 weeks and 3 days. Well this morning when I went pee, I wiped and there was bright red blood on my toilet paper. It wasn't very much, just a little streak. I wiped again and there was more. The 3rd time there wasn't anything. WTF is going on?! I have to wait another 45 minutes before the doctors office opens to call them, which I will, but that's a good long while to wait when I'm trying not to freak out.

Update: Earlier I called the doctor. She said it MIGHT have been from her checking me yesterday, which I thought was the day before so I was stupid and assumed that was too long ago, She did say that she didn't think it was that because the blood was bright red and she checked me 22 hours before I found the blood and it should have been brown if it was from her checking me.

UPDATE 2: I just went pee again and this time, instead of there being any blood there was just a big glob of what I'm assuming is part of my plug. Looked like a huge loogie. Idk. I'm so tired so I'm resting. Baby is moving, but not very often.

Lay down, drink some water and do a kick count, call the office when it opens. If you bleed more or if there is a gush of blood/fluids I'd go into l&d.

Eta: active bleeding/spotting, like you'd need a pantyliner or pad.

She has slowed down the past few days, but yes she is moving. She was moving when I woke up.

Look when you go again. It could be your mucus plug or bloody show. The bloody show is a sign of labor and the mucus plug is a sign labor is coming soon.

It wasn't like snot, that's why I was concerned :/ it was just blood. Can it still be my plug?
