I have a few questions and was wondering if you could give me some insight based on your experiences...
I am pregnant with my second, first was without complications and my daughter was born at 40 weeks 4 days (natural, uncompllicated birth).
I had some bleeding/spotting last week (28 weeks along). I also had an increase in BH and low back pain. I have been constipated my entire pg but now I have loose bowels.
Everything started on Tuesday evening and by Thursday I had lost a very bloody (but brown blood!) mucus plug but spotting had stopped. I started spotting again on Saturday but it only lasted a few hours. Any spotting I had was bright red.
I was checked and cervix is high and closed (they will recheck on Wednesday). I am not at risk for previa.
Does anyone have any idea why this happened? How do they have no idea about where the bleeding is coming from. Should I expect to have it happen the rest of my pregnancy or is it the beginning of perterm labour?
