Well tonight we DTD and I noticed I'm spotting a little bit. I don't want to get my hopes up too much but do you think it's the "show" or just irritated cervix? I'm not contracting or anything yet. Seriously any symptom at this point gets my hopes up "My eye is twitching!! I think it's an early labor sign!" LOL geeze I'm driving myself crazy. This little guy really knows how to keep people in suspense!
It could be either at this point. I know the cervix becomes super sensative with all the extra blood flow down there right before you deliver, I spotted a tad after getting checked by my doc right before. But I say keep DTD, you're so close it has gotta help!
When i spotted i also saw the bloody mucus (ew.) when i wiped so i would be checking
hope it started something for you!!! i started contracting asap when i lost mine (i had been loosing mucus for weeks though)
Hmm...I have heard that in late pregnancy (or in your case, the latest pregnancy!!) sex can cause your cervix to be irritated and can cause spotting, just like when you have your cervix checked at the doctor's office. So that being said, I would try not to get your hopes up too much. However, I hope for your sake that it's a sign of something else, and not just irritation!
Agree with the others about it probably just being irritation of the cervix. But yes, keep DTD! Can only help matters! TMI but apparently the sperm can help soften things up so make sure that sperm gets in there, lol.
sperm naturally has the componants that induction drugs that are put on the cervix contain, so yes keep DTD, it will help... even if that spotting isn't the beginning of labor it could be the start of some other changes that ready you for labor.
