3rd trimester spotting.

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

Ok I feel stupid asking this. But how much spotting is normal in the 3rd Trimester?

I'm almost 30 weeks along. I took progesterone supliments until 17 weeks. They were concerned about my cervix around 18/19 weeks but multiple ultrasounds showed that it had gone back to normal (it looked short in one ultrasound). I have felt movement after finding the blood. Be it light movement (for this one), but movement.

I know that you aren't supposed to call the doctor unless there is heavy bleeding, which I would assume they mean period flow or more. I've only had one successful pregnancy thus far (although the ones I lost were much earlier); so I'm very on edge on anything that seems out of the ordinary.

I was induced with my daughter so I don't even know really what the very early signs of labor look like. Although I can guess based on one of my miscarriages.

It sounds pretty early for any labor spotting or losing your plug (show). Definitely call the doctor to be on the safe side. I have heard of it happening, and in some cases it is nothing. But better err on the side of caution than to be worried and stress you and the baby out. Good luck!

Brittany, mate just go to the doctor. I have no idea what is or isn't normal in the third trimester but way better for you to get checked than not. If you feel all is fine then it probably is, but better tone safe then sorry :)
