Spotting/bleeding in 3rd trimester

Has anyone else had any 3rd trimester spotting/bleeding?

This is the third or fouth time now that it's happened to me. It's not bleeding, just spotting and not a whole ton, but it's still there. And it's bright bright red, but they can't seem to figure out what it's from. It's not from a bladder infection or from sex or exams etc. They don't know why it's happening and why I've been having preterm contractions.

One nurse told me that it was normal to have some amount of spotting in the third trimester... I know it is normal in the first trimester but from pretty  much all the other nurses and drs I've heard that it's definately never normal in the third trimester so I'm kinda confused.

hmm im not really sure but ill give you a bump. do  they know the position of your placenta? its not over your cervix at all is it? if not maybe its just from your cervix, my dr said it can bleed easier while your pregnant and it wont have anything to do with the baby... you can always call and ask to help ease your mind
