Im 31 weeks and spotting. I  just noticed this afternoon and idr what color it was  and this evening its   more reddish than brown. its not much but its still there and  the toilet paper is kinda tinted pink but not the toilet water or anything. Im nervous.   I was  having back cramps last thursday and saturday but nothing to bad and last night  i was having pretty bad back cramps. not back pain  but   kinda like mild cramps when i have my period. And then we had sex too. not rough or anything.

 but its been about 24 hours and im still spoting a little. Its my first pregnancy. do i need to go to the  hospital!?

 i called l&d and they told me to drink  more water (* which ive been chugging all day) and to lay on my left side and if it got worse to call back

 thanks for the advice ladies im gonna crawl into bed and    try to relax

Call your doctor first thing in the morning or go to the er.  That doesn't sound good.  Any time there is blood in the 2nd or 3rd tri, you are supposed to call your doc.

If there was blood and cramping before having sex, I say ER.  If it started after sex, that may be what triggered it and then, I say doctor in the morning.

If the cramps get really bad though, go in NOW.

Speaking of which why did you not call your dr today, OP?

Quoting Juliekat23:

i did  not think much of it till this evening when  i went to the bathroom I was wearing panties from the evening before and figured it may have been leftover from sex or something becuase i know its normal to bleed a little after sex.  and  the clean panties i was wearing were tinged. its not very much but it still worries me. im looking up the number for l&d now
