3rd Trimester

Just looked down... and

I'm spotting, a lot!! I'm having contractions that are still 7-8 mins apart and can't go into L&D at my hospital until my contractions are 3 mins apart since this isn't my first baby, but I am so anxious and hoping this is the real deal! 

 

Anybody else spot or bleed right before going into labor naturally? I'm always induced so I have no idea what to expect!!

Re: Just looked down... and

  • Are you really only 35 weeks?  If so, you should call your OB right now.  Esp. if you are spotting bright red.  Could be a problem with your placenta and I'm not sure they would want you delivering so early anyways.  My OB said they would try and stop me or slow me down if I started before 36 weeks.

  • Could that be your bloody show or the start of it? So exciting! I hope it's soon for ya hun :). ::labor vibes::

    ETA*** Oh wait.. I just realized how far you are. I agree with PP, if you are having bleeding and you aren't full term you should really call your OB. If your OB doesn't have a night # you should call L&D at your hossy. I mean, really you should call if there is blood at any point in time, just to let them know atleast.. But yea.. please call hun.

  • No offense, but I hope it isn't the real deal since you aren't full term.  If you are bleeding/contracting I would call your care provider asap.
  • Why are you hoping it is the real deal if you are only 35 weeks???  Call your dr if you are spotting and not full term.

  • Yeah... at 35 weeks it's nothing to be excited about. At my hospital if you start going into labor before 37 weeks they will usually try to stop it. I'd go to L&D right away!

  • I lost my MP on Mother's Day, and I just called L&D and they told me to head on it. Thanks for the concern.

     

    I'm only hoping its the real deal since I'm bleeding. :)  

     T&Ps plz! 

     

  • you definitely need to call your doctor or hospital since you are not even 37 weeks yet. I know you are anxious and excited, but you need to keep that baby inside for at least a couple more weeks!

    I'm glad you are going in hun. Hoping they can stop the contrax, and that it's just a normal type of spotting :). Good luck.

  • I woke up with blood in my underwear last Monday (at 36 weeks) and started having contractions about an hour later (then delivered that evening!). I'd call my doctor if I were you, if you're not sure what to do. I know everyone is different.

     That may be true and you are very lucky, but it's still not really safe to deliver so early. You could end up with a really healthy child or one in NICU. Better safe than sorry and try to stop those contractions.
