I am 36 weeks and 5 days, this is my first baby. Yesterday was my Dr. appointment, and she checked me. I was 1/2 a centimeter dilated. After I left the office about an hour later I notice while using the bathroom there was a little blood on the toilet paper. Then throughout the rest of the day and into this morning I notice there's not much at all when I wipe now, but if I stick toilet paper inside, there is brown stuff (looks like I'm at the end of my period) Is this normal????? Plus I've noticed I've had a ton of contractions since the office visit, they are very irregular though. Sorry for such a gross question, just don't know what to expect!!
