Should I be worried???? Candi Farley Due March 16; West Virginia 5 posts3rd Feb '13
Im 34 weeks pregnant today with my 3rd child, I've been having a lot of tightening in my belly, but nothing painful just very unconfy & there is no consists with the tightening either, also after urinating today I noticed a tiny speck of bright red blood on the toilet paper.. Should I be worried? Has anyone else had these issues?

So crazy I just posted something similar! I am 36 weeks today with my 3rd! But didn't have blood, but am quite sure I lost my mucous plug! Also having contractions but nothing intense enough to go to hospital. Maybe call your birthing center just to see what they think? Bright blood is fresh blood so may want to see you. Good luck!

No. Braxton Hicks contractions are normal and a little dot of blood is not a big deal.

I've got a appointment tomorrow with my baby doc. I'll bring this up to her.. & I know the BH contractions are normal, but I've had 7 or 8 of them today, I had them with my 2nd child but I don't remember having so many within one day, It's so hard to breath when it happens, feels like a ton of bricks sitting on my chest..
