A am a tad worried and I am not sure if I should be. I noticed a slightly blood-stained discharge last night and today. It looks exactly like the show I had 12 hours before dd was born. Had several contraction-like pains last night but they stopped after a couple of hours. No real pains today. Should I phone the hospital? Am only 29 weeks.

I would give your midwife a ring and explain things to her. If there is any concern she should arrange a scan or examination ASAP. I've found mine to really helpful with this in particular. Good luck xxx

(P.S. Have you been shagging a lot in the last couple of days?! Might be a cervical erosion? Just a thought.)

I would contact your midwife too just to be on the safe side. Hope all is OK. I am nearly 29 weeks too. I am sure it will be nothing serious if it is just a slight bleed but worth checking out. Good Luck and sorry I can't help more.

Well actually......We did bonk just before the bleed! I take it a cervical errosion would not be anything to worry about?

No cervical erosion is quite normal. This is what happened to me (I think) a couple of weeks ago and I panicked because it looked just like a how (mucousy and bloody). I would ring your midwife to discuss anyway if you get a chance but it SOUNDS just like it from what you say (I blame the long bank holiday!).

Let me have a look for some quotes ...

"During pregnancy, the cervix becomes softer and is more prone to bleeding. If the cervix bleeds during intercourse or with a pap smear, it is usually painless; although it may recur, typically, in a few days it turns brown and goes away."

and from another site:
"Minor trauma : Bleeding may be due to minor local problems involving the cervix such as a cervical erosion or polyp. Light bleeding sometimes occurs following sexual intercourse or a cervical exam and is rarely anything to worry about."

i had this at 33 wks and went to the hospital. They checked me out, did an internal and monitored me for a few hours then let me go home. The same happened again around 36 wks and again I had it all checked out. I gave birth naturallly at 41 wks. Do go and get it checked, it is almost certainly nothing to be concerned about but a checkup should ease your worries.

I had 2 cervical erosions, 1 at 29 weeks the other at 36 weeks. Went to hospital for checking out to put my mind at rest. Stayed in overnight bother times just for monitoring but everything was fine. I would ring midwife just to put your mind at rest if anything.

PS - tell him to be more gentle.
