  • ugh...spotting :(

      So when I got home from work last night I was having some yucky pains...felt like bowel pressure and menstral cramps and they came in waves of intensity. I counted 5 of the "waves" in an hour so I talked to the midwife on call and she said to try some milk of mag, lots of water and just keep an eye on it. My night went ok...I think it got a little better. But now this morning, the milk of mag is working and I'm releasing my bowels, but I've started spotting...oh joy. I called again and she just said it could be irritation from being constipated and to give it some time and see how it goes.

      I reminded her I have an abdominal cerclage and can not labor but she still didn't seem concerned. Did any of you ladies deal with any spotting in the last few weeks of your pregnancy? I'm 36w1d today. I know it's not coming from my anus...definitely my vagina. I just hope it doesn't come back.
