I dunno....I had some spotting and lost some mucous along with really bad crampsthe night before last but I called L&D and they told me not to come in unless I filled a pad with blood and/or had at least 5-6 contractions in an hour. :( I'm glad your doctor acctually did something about it (I've been trying to get in to see my doc but everytime I call they say she's not in.) I hope things get better for you and your little one stays in a few more weeks at least!

I feel your pain! I've been in and out of hte hosital since 34 weeks as well!! At 35 I was having intense cramping as well, it was awful. I was told I am 3 cm dilated, 50% effaced and she is in position. They sent me home becasue iwas "preterm"and they couldn't help me along. WhenI got home I had a bloody mess, mucuous and it was discusting. IT was definitely the rest of my mucuous plug plus bright red mucuous that they said was from the exam. I was back inthe hospital Sunday with contractions and they told me I had a irritated uterus because I'm so tiny and she is getting bigger and outgrowing the space but again they couldnt do anthing becauseI was still preterm. Today I am full term, so I hope if anything happens, they take her out, I'm in agony!

I would not worry, it is very normal at the end of pregnancy to see blood, feel pain and be nervous. I'm sure you are fine. Stick in there, you are not alone!
