SO today I went to the doctor and she said one of the "labor signs" was blood. Me and Bd just had sex and he has blood on his p***s and I wiped blood too. What does this mean exactly? That labor will be soon? It wasn't a speck of blood it was a fair amout.

But my water didn't break yet. What's going on?

never heard of blood being a sign of anything good during pregnancy. I would at least call the doc if not go to L&D.

Bleeding after sex towards the end of the pregnancy is normal. Everything is getting soft and it's possible to irritate the tissue.

My midwife always told me that if it kept flowing, and was more than a tablespoon or so, to come get checked out just in case, but bleeding after sex is VERY normal as your cervix begins to soften and change. If it gets bumped around by the p***s it can break little blood vessels. :) If it stops, its fine.
It could be your bloody show, but that is usually caused from contractions in early labor, so I'd imagine its just your cervix being irritated. Just keep an eye on it. :)

my bloody show was A LOT. I was already in the hospital so I didnt freak, but I stood up and the bed was all bloody and I called the nurse in. She was like "it's a good sign!"

it can be scary, but most likely its just irratation. my friend stephanie had this and her doc said it was just an irratated cervix friom sex. and that was at 7 months
